2013 MLB Playoffs Expert Picks: Divisional Round

Pittsburgh is back in the postseason; can their enthusiasm and momentum carry them past a Cardinals squad that knows how to win? (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/)

Now that the Wildcard round is over, the Divisional round is immediately underway. Both Wildcard winners face divisional foes, with those #1 teams (Boston and St Louis) having tied for MLB’s best record. St Louis has kept their winning culture post-Pujols, while Boston has both one of the deadliest and most patient offenses in baseball. Elsewhere, Oakland and Detroit will have a rematch from last season’s Divisional round, while Atlanta faces a tough test in a Dodgers squad that has new ownership that spent an absolutely massive sum to bring in multiple superstars.

After a brief set of Wildcard picks, our experts believe the luck of both Wildcard winners will run out. Los Angeles is also a favored opponent against an Atlanta squad that squandered away the #1 seed in the waning moments of the regular season. The best series by far looks to be Oakland and Detroit; no matter what, the panel expects it to go five games.

In this round, picking the winner of a series is worth two points as usual, and guessing how many games the series will last is worth one point.

So with that in mind, check below to see how everyone thinks this round will go. And be sure to come back once the LCSs are set for the results.
