I know that the 4 division leaders make it but how many wild card teams are there? I think it might be 1 but I am not sure.

First we need the total amount of teams. If we had 4 division with 4 teams in each. I would make it just 1st & 2nd for playoff, no wildcard. This only if we have 16 teams.

16 teams, no wildcard just 1st& 2nd place.

20 teams, 1st, 2nd & 3rd. Third place would be the wildcard.
wildcard play 2nd place team first round.

First round wildcard vs 2nd place

1st play winner of 2nd place and wildcard game:eek:

I have all the teams so woudn't that be 32? 8 divisions and 4 teams in each?

Oh, you must be playing a season huh? Well, I would say like the NFL would do. 3 division winner & 2 wildcard.
