Best NLCS Betting Promos
The MLB playoffs have finally reached the league championship stage after all four 100-win teams in the regular season were eliminated from the postseason. The Baltimore Orioles and Los Angeles Dodgers were both swept in the Divisional round, while the Atlanta Braves couldn’t avenge last season’s playoff loss to the Phillies, losing three games to one.
LSC odds are now available on all major betting apps to go along with a litany of baseball sportsbook promos. The time is here for fans to make their MLB picks for the NL team they think will advance to the World Series starting on October 27.
The Arizona Diamondbacks will be on the road against the Phillies in Game 1 of the National League Championship series. Arizona finished six games behind Philadelphia in the regular season and weren’t expected to make the playoffs before the season began. They swept the Dodgers in the Divisional round behind their solid pitching that only gave up six runs in the three-game series. Arizona won the season series against Philadelphia, four games to three.
The Phillies were impressive in their series against Atlanta, holding the Braves’ high-powered offense to just seven runs in four games. Nick Castellanos was the hero for Philadelphia after setting a Major League playoff record with back-to-back multi-homer games, the first time the feat has ever been accomplished in history.

Best Bets to Make on the NLCS
Philadelphia came up two games short of winning the championship last season and were impressive in their series against the Braves, who were silenced by the Phillies' dominant pitching. Arizona had +125000 odds to win the World Series in the preseason, while Philadelphia was one of the favorites to win it all before the season started. The D’Backs have also scored four or more runs in every game in the postseason, which the Phillies must avoid.
Only three teams have ever had preseason odds of +5000 or higher and went on to win the World Series, putting the odds against Arizona. While both teams eliminated top-level opponents in the Divisional round, the DBacks’ win over LA could be due to the Dodgers not handling the pressure of the long season.
Philadelphia enters the series as -170 favorites and is the best bet to win this matchup and move on to their second straight World Series.
