The Brewers are the easy favorites. Their team is built for October baseball. It reminds me a lot of the 2015 Mets, a ton of great young pitching, and enough hitting to make it work. The issue with that is if your pitching crumbles even a little, it puts you in danger. That’s why the Braves are given the shot they are in this series. Still, Milwaukee is likely to be the largest favorite of any team in the NLDS or ALDS.
