With one week left in the baseball season, there are still six teams whose 2019 win totals have yet to be decided. Among them include teams vying for playoff spots in the Milwaukee Brewers, Chicago Cubs, New York Mets and Washington Nationals. The Cincinnati Reds and Chicago White Sox won't make the postseason but how they finish will determine who cashes their March over/under bets.
Let's take a look at the six teams as well as those that have been decided.

Totals still in doubt
(in order of wins needed)
Milwaukee Brewers (86-70, one win from total of 86.5): The Brewers currently sit 4 games up in the Wild Card race, but percentage points behind the Nationals for home-field. It's a safe bet they win at least one more game to hit the over.
Schedule: 3 at Reds, 3 at Rockies
Washington Nationals (85-69, four wins from total of 88.5): As noted above, the Nationals and Brewers are dead locked for the Wild Card spots. The Nationals need to go 4-4 over the final eight games (all at home) to hit the over.
Schedule: 5 vs. Phillies, 3 vs. Indians
Chicago White Sox (68-87, five wins from total of 72.5): The White Sox offseason is near, but they can make over bettors happy with a strong finish. Chicago needs to go 5-2 over the final seven games (all at home) to hit the over. They do finish with a 4-game set with the Tigers.
Schedule: 3 vs. Indians, 4 vs. Tigers
New York Mets (81-74, five wins from total of 85.5): The Mets aren't done yet in the playoff race (4.5 back) and will likely need to win all seven games to have a shot. If they do that, they will hit their over total as well. Four games vs. the Marlins and three vs. an already-clinched Braves leaves hope for both.
Schedule: 4 vs. Marlins, 3 vs. Braves
Cincinnati Reds (73-83, six wins from total of 78.5): The Reds are playing out the string and would need to go 6-0 to end the season to hit the over. Under backers can't count their money yet, but it's one loss away.
Schedule: 3 vs. Brewers, 3 at Pirates
Chicago Cubs (82-74, six games from pushing total of 88): The Cubs can't hit the over, but if they go 6-0, everyone gets their money back with the push. That would not be good news for those on the under, who were helped by the 4-game sweep at the hands of the Cardinals over the weekend.
Schedule: 3 at Pirates, at 3 at Cardinals
