Latest Cubs odds to reach World Series


by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Cubs are down 2-0 to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League Championship Series.

Five Thirty Eight released their latest playoff odds and had the Cubs chances of defeating the Dodgers and making it to another World Series at only 16%.

If you thought those were long odds, the website has the Cubs odds of winning the World Series at only 7%.

Other odds include the Astros having a 70% chance to win their series and having a 34% chance to win it all. Conversely, the Dodgers have an 84% chance to win against the Cubs and the highest chance to win the World Series at 44%.

All of these odds and statistics won't matter if Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant find their bats and lead the Cubs to a few home victories. The pivotal NLCS Game 3 at Wrigley Field is at 8 p.m. CDT tonight.
