The Dodgers are cruising to their 5th straight NL West title and are looking towards October. They currently sit above the Astros by eight games for the best record in the majors, and they are 13 games above the Nationals for the best record in the NL.

Right now it looks like the Wild Card winner will be an NL West opponent, but there are still about 50 games remaining so anything can happen. Let’s examine the most likely candidates Los Angeles will face in the NLDS.
