Cubs World Series Odds
As we currently sit almost at the exact halfway point of the season, the Chicago Cubs sit 3.5 games back in the National League Central Division. In a difficult division such as the NL Central, it is imperative that the Chicago Cubs stay within reach heading into the second half of the MLB season. Many expected the Cubs to take this division this season, however cross division rivals such as the St. Louis Cardinals and the Milwaukee Brewers are making strong contenders of themselves as well. With no shortage of talent throughout their lineup, it is a mystery why the Cubs currently sit 14th in the NL in respect to batting average with a poor .247 team-average. Although the hitting for the most part has been poor, the pitching has been there all season as the Cubs team earned run average currently sits at an impressive 81. Look for the Cubs to seriously improve their bats in the second half, leading them into a tight race for the NL Central and NL wild card titles come September. As we all know, the Cubs are in a 100+ year World Series drought, but once in the playoffs this well-balanced offence and pitching staff could do damage and take a crack at winning the 2009 World Series.
At the time of writing this article, the odds of the Chicago Cubs is +1300. If you are unsure of what this means, if you put a $100 bet on the Chicago Cubs to win the 2009 World Series, it would pay $1400 if won. These odds are currently ranked 6th among MLB teams. Personally, I think these odds are about right for a team that should be contending for the 2009 World Series. Underachievers in the first half, look for the Chicago Cubs to seriously contend for NL Central division title, and at worst an NL Wild card spot. Get your bets in now for the Chicago Cubs to win the 2009 World Series as these odds are unpredictable and could lower as the Chicago Cubs improve in the second half of the 2009 MLB season.
