NL East Odds & Best Bets 2023

Last Updated: Aug 25, 2023

The Atlanta Braves have run roughshod on the National League all season, and it has led to a large lead in the National League East division.

The question that needs to be answered is whether any available odds are worth wagering on.

Handling NL East Betting Odds Going Forward

Since it appears the current division lead the Braves have is insurmountable, it’s time to pack up shop on the division and move on, right? Nope!

The Phillies and Marlins are in the thick of the NL Wild Card race. Multiple books have odds for Philly and Miami to make/miss the playoffs.

Philadelphia has heavy juice to make the playoffs with DraftKings Sportsbook having the best odds of them making the playoffs (-750). The Phillies have an 82.9% of making the playoffs, according to FanGraphs. It’s okay to pass on this number.

The Marlins have a 27.4% of making the playoffs, and their odds to make the playoffs are best at DraftKings (+230). You can get the Fish to miss the postseason at (-270) on Caesars Sportsbook, which is on par with their playoff odds and with the team having the second-hardest remaining schedule among NL Wild Card contenders.

I am off on both numbers for Miami, but this is the best market to monitor for changing odds.
