The Los Angeles Dodgers have made the playoffs for 11 straight seasons, and they’re unsurprisingly in the 2024 MLB playoff picture.

Dodgers Playoff Chances

The Dodgers playoff odds are off the board, as they have more than a 99% implied chance of making the postseason.

Here is how their odds compare to the rest of the NL West:

  • Dodgers: Off the board
  • Padres: +120
  • Diamondbacks: +145
  • Giants: +320
  • Rockies: Off the board

Dodgers Playoff Seed

If the postseason began today, the Dodgers would be the No. 2 seed in the six-team NL bracket. They’re seven games ahead of the Arizona Diamondbacks and the San Diego Padres for the division lead in the NL West.

As a top-two seed, Los Angeles would earn a bye to begin the postseason.

Here’s the current NL bracket:

Last Time the Dodgers Made the Playoffs

The Dodgers made the playoffs in 2023 for the 11th consecutive season, a streak that began in 2013.

Los Angeles has only won one World Series ring over that span, a feat it accomplished during a COVID-shortened campaign in 2020.
