With just two weeks left in baseball’s regular season, the four American League playoff teams are all but set, while seven teams still have a shot at the National League’s four spots. Vegas sees a repeat of last year’s World Series as likely. The New York Yankees are favorites to repeat as AL champs (+150) and World Series champs (+275), and the Philadelphia Phillies as favorites to be NL champs (+160).

Here’s a look at each team’s magic numbers and World Series odds:

Yankees 90-59 +150 +275 Magic Number to clinch playoff spot: 7

Devil Rays 89-59 +220 +400 Magic Number to clinch playoff spot: 8

Twins 89-60 +350 +900 Magic Number to clinch AL Central: 4

Rangers 83-65 +400 +850 Magic Number to clinch AL West: 6

Phillies 89-61 +160 +400 Magic Number to clinch playoff spot: 8

Braves 86-64 +350 +1000 Magic Number to clinch playoff spot: 11

Reds 84-66 +400 +900 Magic Number to clinch NL Central: 8

Giants 84-66 +700 +1400 Magic Number to clinch NL West: 13

Rockies 82-67 +900 +2000 Playoff Elimination Number: 12

Padres 83-66 +1000 +1400 Playoff Elimination Number: 13

Cardinals 77-71 +7000 +12500 Playoff Elimination Number: 8

The Devil Rays and Yankees begin a four-game series in New York that may determine who wins the AL East and who has to play all its playoff series on the road. It will be interesting to see if there’s any movement in the futures odds based on the outcome of that series. The Braves also start a three-game set in Philadelphia that could move them back into the NL East race, or put them in danger of missing the playoffs altogether.
