Where does your team sit in the race for the divisions and wild cards? Keep up to date with SI's odds and standings, updated every morning.

NOTE: For the remainder of the regular season, SI.com will have a daily post updating the standings relevant to the postseason races. The positive numbers under Games Behind for the wild-card leaders indicate their lead over the third-place team in the race, or how far they are from being knocked out of a playoff spot. The Elimination Number (E#) column indicates the total number of the given team’s losses and leading team’s wins needed to eliminate that team from the race (essentially the reverse of a magic number). The magic number of the leading team is the elimination number of the second-place team. Postseason Odds are from ClayDavenport.com and will be updated in the mornings only.

Standings updated through the games of Sunday, September 7.
