Chicago Cubs fans are ready for the 2019 season to get underway after a disappointing end to last season.

Vegas released their latest MLB win totals, and the Cubs have a projection of 89 wins, second highest in the National League behind the Los Angeles Dodgers (95).

The top 10 teams in terms of projected wins are the Houston Astros (97.5), New York Yankees (96.5), Boston Red Sox (95.5), Los Angeles Dodgers (95), Cleveland Indians (91.5), Chicago Cubs (89), St. Louis Cardinals (88.5), Washington Nationals (88.5), Tampa Bay Rays (85.5), and Atlanta Braves (84).

The NL Central crown went to the Milwaukee Brewers last season, but they are projected to have a step-back in 2019 with a projection on only 83.5 wins.

In case you were wondering on the worst projection in the majors, the Baltimore Orioles are the clear favorites to win that distinction at a prediction of only 59 wins.
