Surprising MLB Picks: 3 Dark Horse Teams Set to Upend Your Postseason Predictions

While many view the Philadelphia Phillies as underdogs, they’re far from irrelevant in the National League race. The Atlanta Braves, reigning NL champs, will be a formidable force, but the Phillies have proven their potential to disrupt expectations.

Last October, the Phillies halted the Braves’ postseason journey, defeating them after sweeping the Cardinals in the Wild Card round. Despite being underdogs against the defending World Series champions, they dominated Games 3 and 4 on their home turf, raising the question of a potential repeat upset.

Undoubtedly, Atlanta remains the favorites, but the Phillies boast a powerhouse lineup featuring Bryce Harper, Nick Castellanos, J.T. Realmuto, Trea Turner, and Kyle Schwarber. Their pitching staff, with stars like Zack Wheeler, Aaron Nola, Ranger Suarez, Craig Kimbrel, and Gregory Soto, adds to their formidable arsenal.

Having narrowly missed a World Series title last year, the Phillies are determined to put that disappointment behind them and secure victory this time.
