The 2021 MLB playoffs begin Tuesday night with 10 teams hoping to raise this year's World Series trophy.

After six months of regular-season baseball, this week marks the start of the 2021 MLB postseason and all the joy and madness that comes with it.

The World Series favorite is already facing elimination. That’s weird, right?

The favored team to win the 2021 World Series is already facing elimination. The Los Angeles Dodgers will have to navigate a one-game playoff against the St. Louis Cardinals to begin their quest to repeat as champions. Prevail, and they’ll have to face the 107-win San Francisco Giants in the divisional round. And yet, the Dodgers are the consensus favorite to win the 2021 World Series (between 3-1 and 4-1) according to almost every sportsbook offering odds on the event.
