The Atlanta Braves are seeking a seventh consecutive postseason berth and are firmly in the 2024 MLB playoff picture.

Braves Playoff Chances

The Braves playoff odds are -2500, which is a 96.15% implied probability of making the postseason.

Here is how their playoff odds fare in the NL East:

  • Phillies: Off the board
  • Braves: -2500
  • Mets: +180
  • Nationals: +2200
  • Marlins: Off the board

Braves Playoff Seed

If the postseason began today, the Braves would be the No. 4 seed in the National League. They have been in this position for much of the year, thanks to a 9.5-game deficit to the Philadelphia Phillies for first place in the NL East.

At this point, Atlanta would host the St. Louis Cardinals in a best-of-three Wild Card Series.

Here’s the current NL bracket:

Last Time the Braves Made the Playoffs

The Braves made the playoffs in 2023, marking their sixth straight postseason appearance. Atlanta lost to the Philadelphia Phillies in the NLDS for the second consecutive season.

The Braves won the World Series in 2021 and reached the NLCS as a Wild Card team in 2020.
