NLCS Bracket 2021: Schedule, Odds, World Series Predictions Before Game 3

The Atlanta Braves are World Series champions for the first time in 26 years. The Braves took down the Houston Astros, 4-2, in the 2021 World Series, winning Game 6 on Tuesday night. The NL East champion Braves knocked out the Milwaukee Brewers in the NLDS and Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS to reach the Fall Classic.

MLB used a 16-team postseason format during the pandemic-shortened 60-game season a year ago. This season they went back to the usual 10-team format. As a reminder, the three division winners in each league advanced directly to the League Division Series. The non-division winners with the two best records met in the Wild Card Game, with the winner advancing to face the team with the league's best record in the LDS. The LDS was a best-of-five, and the League Championship Series and World Series are both best-of-sevens.

Below are the full results from the 2021 postseason.
