The Chicago Cubs won their first World Series title since 1908 so what could be better than that historic accomplishment? Well doing it all over again in 2017. The Cubs were recently labeled according to Vegas Sportsbooks as the frontrunners to win the 2017 World Series at 7-2 odds.

Now, Vegas Sportsbook Bovada released their betting odds on the projected regular-season win totals and the Cubs led the way with the highest projected win totals at 95.5.

Other National League contenders with the highest totals were the Los Angeles Dodgers (93.5), Washington Nationals (90.5), New York Mets (88.5), and San Francisco Giants (87.5). In the American League, the three teams with the highest win totals were the Cleveland Indians (92.5), Boston Red Sox (92.5), and the Houston Astros (89.5).

On the opposite side of the winning spectrum, the Cubs rival Chicago White Sox had the lowest projected win totals in the American League at only 69.5 wins. The Padres were the only team that was projected to be worse than the White Sox in baseball for the upcoming season.
