The Atlanta Braves haven’t forgotten how last season’s wild card race spiraled out of control. For as long as the St. Louis Cardinals will be remembered for their epic run to the 2012 World Series, it will be the Braves whose catastrophic collapse allowed them the playoff berth. This year, with the year of experience under their belt, the MLB odds are on their side.

Although it’s way too early to know which team will be hot when the postseason starts in October, it’s never too early to start figuring out which clubs will get the opportunity to strike it rich. Although seemingly trapped in a stacked division, the Braves are the clear favorites to take the first of two wild card berths.
According to Bovada’s MLB oddsmakers, the Braves even have 12/1 odds of winning the World Series and 5/1 odds of taking home the National League pennant.
This Monday, Chipper Jones and co. will sit back and welcome the Colorado Rockies to Turner Field. With September here now, every game with playoff implications is a must-win. For the Braves and any other team gunning for a postseason berth, that means every game. Lest 2011 repeats itself all over again.
