National League

If the season ended today …

In each playoff series, the team with the better record earns the right to play a decisive Game 5 (in LDS play) or Game 7 (in LCS and World Series play) at home. As such, the team with the best overall record in MLB gains home-field advantage throughout the postseason. The Astros currently hold a slim lead over the Yankees for the best record in baseball. It is worth nothing Houston won the season series (4-3) and owns the homefield advantage tiebreaker.

Division leaders and race for home-field advantage

To break any ties for home-field advantage, head-to-head records are used. If that doesn’t do the trick, then records versus divisional opponents and records versus league opponents (i.e. NL team vs. NL opponents and AL team vs. AL opponents) are used, in that order.
