Cubs Favored on Odds to Win World Series

With opening day coming up this weekend it looks like the Chicago Cubs will begin the new baseball season as the favorites on the odds to win the World Series.

After bolstering their talented young lineup with a few veterans in the offseason the Cubs are a +500 favorite on the World Series odds at online sportsbook Bodog.

The Cubs already looked like a future powerhouse with Kris Bryant, Kyle Schwarber, Anthony Rizzo, Jake Arrieta and Addison Russell. The additions of Jason Heyward, Ben Zobrist and John Lackey could be enough to bring a championship to Wrigley Field for the first time in history.

While the Cubs continue to sit atop the World Series odds Canadian baseball fans may be interested to know the Toronto Blue Jays are now getting the best World Series odds among American League teams.

At the beginning of Spring Training the Jays shared odds with the Boston Red Sox at +1400. They’ve since been bumped up to +1000, lioresal reviews and if newly anointed fifth starter Aaron Sanchez can pitch like he has in Spring Training that could be justified.

Between the Cubs and the Blue Jays on the odds list are the San Francisco Giants at +800. If you believe the even-year trend the Giants are due a World Series championship after previously winning in 2010, 2012 and 2014.

The additions of starting pitchers Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija behind Madison Bumgarner also make the Giants a legitimate World Series contender of course.

Rounding out the top five teams on the World Series futures are the New York Mets and Los Angeles Dodgers both at +1200.

The Mets may have the best rotation in baseball led by power arms Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard. Using cheap cipro to Treat Urinary Tract Infections. Along with Steven Matz, veteran Bartolo Colon and eventually Zack Wheeler, the Mets have a rotation capable of dominating the National League East for years.

The Dodgers boast arguably the best starting pitcher in the game in Clayton Kershaw, but following the departure of Zack Greinke and some early injuries they have a few questions.

Scott Kazmir has looked pretty bad in his spring outings, Brett Anderson joined Hyun-jin Ryu and Brandon McCarthy on the DL, and Kenta Maeda has never thrown a pitch in a Major League game.
