It doesn’t take long for oddsmakers to look ahead. Once a season ends, the next season begins and that’s why oddsmakers at BetOnline Sportsbook have put out 2017 World Series futures odds.
The betting market has spoken and it says that the Chicago Cubs will win the World Series. After Corey Kluber opened a short favorite at several books, the Cubs are now a clear favorite in Cleveland to win Game 7.
The Cleveland Indians couldn’t get it done in Chicago, so they’ll have to try to get it done on an unseasonably warm November night off the shores of Lake Erie. The Chicago Cubs are hoping to force a winner-take-all Game 7 on Wednesday.
With their backs against the wall, the Chicago Cubs are an enormous favorite for Game 5 of the World Series at Wrigley Field. Elimination is a possibility for the North Siders in a game that will feature Game 1 starter Jon Lester against Game 2 starter Trevor Bauer.
The Cleveland Indians had an improbable win in Game 3 to silence the raucous Wrigley Field crowd and now ace Corey Kluber returns to the mound with a chance to give the Tribe a 3-1 series lead. The Chicago Cubs will go to veteran John Lackey in hopes of tying up the series.
The question on everybody’s mind is whether or not the World Series will return to Cleveland. The Chicago Cubs took back home field advantage with their victory in Game 2 and can put the series away at Wrigley Field if they can win three straight games.
The Cubs are still a series favorite at most sportsbooks, despite the Game 1 loss, and they’re a big road favorite for Game 2.
The Cubs haven’t won a World Series since 1908. The Indians haven’t won a World Series since 1948. One of those droughts will end next week and winning Game 1 would be a big help in that pursuit. Let’s break it down and see where the value lies for tonight’s game.
The stage is set for one of the most interesting World Series in recent memory. The Chicago Cubs have not won the World Series since 1908. The Cleveland Indians have not won the World Series since 1948.
A day without baseball felt really strange on Friday. Fortunately, we’ve got baseball again here on Saturday.

Let’s preview this one and see if there are any value sides or totals to play on.
