After losing in the NL Wild Card last year, the Milwaukee Brewers are back in the mix for the 2024 MLB playoff picture.

Brewers Playoff Chances

The Brewers playoff odds are -1000, which implies an 90.91% chance of making the postseason.

Their playoff odds are the best in the NL Central:

  • Brewers: -1000
  • Cardinals: Off the board
  • Reds: +600
  • Cubs: +675
  • Pirates: +700

Brewers Playoff Seed

If the postseason began today, the Brewers would be the lone NL division winner to play in the Wild Card round. They trail the Los Angeles Dodgers for a potential bye, but they are five games ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals for the division lead in the NL Central.

As a result, Milwaukee would host the No. 6 seed in a best-of-three Wild Card series.

Here’s the current NL bracket:

Last Time the Brewers Made the Playoffs

The Brewers made the playoffs in 2023, suffering a 2-0 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NL Wild Card.

Milwaukee has made the postseason in five of the last six seasons.
