Now that the League Championship Series are about to commence with the Tigers invading New York, it’s time to present this year’s selections for the LCS Round of the MLB Pick ‘Em. This year’s match-ups of the Tigers/Cardinals and Giants/Cardinals is creating some interesting divides.
There’s not much of a consensus on winners, with each series being picked 3-2. The idea that does jump out is that all but one selection on both series combined was for a series length of at least six games. And interestingly enough, everyone who picked a pitcher to win series MVP also picked that series to go exactly six games.
Speaking of which, the scoring category of MVP for each series has been introduced for this round. It will be worth one points, as will the series length, while picking the winner of a series is still worth two points.
So while you’re enjoying mid-October baseball at its finest, be sure to follow along below to see how your favorite expert is doing with their picks. And don’t forget to check back after both series conclude to see the results.
