The Major League Baseball playoffs start Friday with two more teams than ever before.  The favorites to win this year’s World Series according to oddsmakers are the New York Yankees, who narrowly won their division. The favorite to come out of the National League are the upstart Washington Nationals. With the new playoff format, both the Yanks and Nats will have to start the playoffs on the road.

The teams with the longest odds are the wild cards, who face sudden-death games on Friday they must win to advance to the best-of-five League Division Series.
