Here is the updated postseason bracket:
Just to be clear, these are the projected odds to win each round. In other words, the current projected World Series has the Astros clashing with the Dodgers, who are expected to win the whole thing.
It's worth noting the Nationals are favored in Thursday night's game. Blame it on home-field advantage, but it's there. We'll see if SportsLine gets it right -- and we'll check back in tomorrow to see how the odds change with the Game 5 result.
