MLB Playoffs Wild Card schedule and betting odds


2023 MLB Playoffs – Wild Card Round and How to Watch

The 2023 Major League Baseball Playoffs are set. Action begins on Tuesday October 3 and will continue throughout the month and possibly into November until a World Series champion is crowned.


The Wild Card Round is a best-of-three series seeded 3 vs. 6 and 4 vs. 5, where the No. 3 seed is the division champion with the fewest wins and the Wild Card teams are ranked No. 4, No. 5, No. 6 by record. There are no off days between games, so the teams will all play Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (if necessary) before all four Divisional Round series start on Saturday October 8.
