Now That The Curse Has Been Broken, Do The Chicago Cubs Have What It Takes To Repeat?

The Chicago Cubs were baseball’s lovable losers for over a century, but last fall, the losers finally became champions.

Going into last season, the Cubs were favored to win the World Series after an impressive run in the postseason the previous year. Despite the pressure, the team finished with the best record in baseball and overcame a 3-1 deficit to the Cleveland Indians to win the championship.

According to the odds makers, the Cubs are once again favored to win the World Series, the only question on the mind of their fans now is can they overcome their offseason losses to put together another championship run.

Odds To Win NL Central

  • Cincinnati Reds +10000
  • Chicago Cubs -500
  • Milwaukee Brewers +10000
  • Pittsburgh Pirates +800
  • St. Louis Cardinals +650

The Cubs are the overwhelming favorites to win the NL Central, but they are likely going to get some stiff competition from the St. Louis Cardinals, who always seem to be in contention for the division, and the Pittsburgh Pirates, who have also been good in recent years. Due to their depth advantage, the Cubs should be able to finish on top of the division, barring any serious injuries.

Odds To Win NL Pennant

  • San Francisco Giants +700
  • Atlanta Braves +5000
  • Chicago Cubs +185
  • New York Mets +750
  • Colorado Rockies +2500
  • Los Angeles Dodgers +375
  • Miami Marlins +3600
  • Washington Nationals +500

When it comes to the NL pennant, the Cubs have some competition from teams like the Washington Nationals, who have one of the best pitching rotations in baseball, the Los Angeles Dodgers, who are just as deep as the Cubbies, and the San Francisco Giants, who are capable of going on a run if they make the postseason.

  • Los Angeles Dodgers +700
  • Washington Nationals +1000

While the Cubs have the best odds of winning the World Series, the Red Sox, Indians, and Dodgers aren’t too far behind.
