The St. Louis Cardinals know all too well just how much of an impact late season momentum can have on a playoff run. They proved it themselves in 2011, rallying up the World Series odds after nearly missing out on their wild card berth altogether. This year, however, they’ll watch anxiously as the Milwaukee Brewers look to replicate the feat.

With less than two weeks remaining in the Major League Baseball season, fans and baseball oddsmakers alike are biding their time for the much-anticipated postseason. Currently the Cardinals sit in prime position for the second of two berths available in the National League, but their ticket is far from guaranteed.
A late-season surge has pushed the Brewers to the top of the conversation, making Ryan Braun, Aramis Ramirez and company one of the most intriguing lots available on the MLB moneyline. Nearly neck and neck with the Cardinals, they’ll need a strong showing in the final days of the regular season to rally for the final spot.
Considering that Atlanta has all but sealed the first of the two wild card berths, and that the NL Central has already been won by Cincinnati, the final opening will have to either fall into St. Louis’ lap for a second straight year, or into the hands of their division rival Brewers who’ve taken a page out of their own book.
This Friday the Brewers will kick off the final stretch of their season, a two series homestand starting against Houston and ending against San Diego. Weigh in on playoff baseball today.
