Take the Mariners’ winning percentage against the Angels this season and divide by two to find the chances that the Mariners win their final two games. Then do the same thing for Texas and Oakland and multiply the two percentages together.

.588/2= .294 or a 29.4% chance the Mariners win their final two games.

.529/2= .265 or a 26.5% chance the Athletics lose their final two games.

(.294)x(.265)= .0779 or 7.79% chance the Mariners make the playoffs.
