The Chicago Cubs have struggled mightily during the first half of the 2017 baseball season compiling a 43-45 record and putting a huge exclamation by getting smacked 14-3 by the Pirates last Sunday.

However, the folks in Vegas still think the Cubs have a big-time shot to win the 2017 World Series. The Cubs still have the fifth-best odds to win the World Series with 8-to-1 odds according to Bovada.

Are they the fifth-best team in the majors, right now? Probably not, but they can get on a hot streak because of their 74 remaining regular-season games, 71 percent of those are against teams with losing records.

The best odds to win the 2017 World Seres in order were the Los Angeles Dodgers (7-to-2), the Houston Astros (17-to-4), Boston Red Sox (6-to-1), Washington Nationals (7-to-1), and Chicago Cubs (8-to-1).

Don't give up Cubs fans because the team is only 5.5 games out of first place in the National League Central division.
