MLB Who’s Hot and Who’s Not – Sept. 25

Updated: .September 25, 2017

The final BetAnySports’ MLB hot and not report for the regular season starts with five of the six playoff spots in the American League locked up. Over in the National League, only three of the six have been claimed with just one week of games left on the schedule.

The hottest team in the Majors heading into the final week of play before the postseason gets underway with the wild card round in the first week of October would have to be the Boston Red Sox with a six-game winning streak as part of a 9-1 run in their last 10 games. Cleveland remains hot at 8-2 over its last 10 games as an extension of the Indians’ recent 22-game winning streak that came to an end on Sept. 15.

Both Boston (91-64) and Cleveland (98-58) appear to be on a collision course to battle it out for a spot in this year’s World Series out of the AL, but do not tell that to the Houston Astros. They are also 8-2 in their last 10 games as part of an overall record of 95-60 heading into Monday’s road game at Texas. The New York Yankees (86-69) have clinched a playoff spot as a likely wild card team and right now the Minnesota Twins have the inside track to claim the other one at 82-74 on the year.

Over in the NL playoff race, both the Washington Nationals (94-61) in the East and the Los Angeles Dodgers (99-57) in the West have locked up a division title, with the Chicago Cubs on the brink of once again winning the NL Central. In a huge showdown against Milwaukee this past weekend, they won three of four games to open up a 5.5-game lead in that race. They are 87-68 overall heading into this week’s road series against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Arizona has clinched one of the two wild card sports in this league at 90-66 and Colorado (84-72) will try and fend off the Brewers (82-74) over the next seven days to secure the final spot in the NL postseason picture.

Looking ahead to BetAnySports’ MLB futures to win this year’s World Series, the team at the top of the list right now from the AL is Cleveland at +300 betting odds. Houston’s odds are set at +500 followed by Boston at +800. When it comes to the NL, the Dodgers are also +300 favorites to win it all followed by the Cubs at +650 and Washington at +700 odds.
