Everything is set up for the first pitch, next Tuesday, October 25th, of one of the most exciting World Series in decades, at the Progressive Field in Cleveland. After a crazy weekend, the Chicago fans will have to let go the cheers, chants, and celebrations for winning their first National League pennant since 1945 and travel to Cleveland to begin the series and find out who will become next MLB’s Champion.
What is really interesting about this World Series is the fact that these two teams are the owners of the two longest World Series championship droughts, and one of them will finally come to an end. The American League Champion, the Cleveland Indians last won the World Series in 1948, and their last appearance was in 1997 when they lost in seven games to the Florida Marlins. Chicago Cubs fans have waited even longer since their last World Series title came in 1908.
Who Is Favorite?
This series is going to be pretty tight. Nonetheless, major books all over the world already have their favorite. Maybe because, Cleveland’s tribe, has important injuries such as Danny Salazar, Carlos Carrasco, and Trevor Bauer. This means that much of the responsibility to lead the team to victory lies on Corey Kluber, who –by the way- has done a magnificent job throughout the postseason. As for the Cubs, they will bring all the heat to Cleveland in the hands of Jon Lester, Kyle Hendricks, Jake Arrieta and John Lackey.
Opening lines for World Series Game 1 are:
- Chicago Cubs -175
- Cleveland Indians +155
