The last time the Chicago Cubs were in a World Series, tickets cost just £6. Now that they’re finally back, over 2.6 million fans applied for tickets which are selling for upwards of £5,000 each! They take on another franchise starved of success, the Cleveland Indians, who took the first game 6-0 to go one up in the seven game series...

Chicago Cubs To Win The 2016 World Series @ 4/5 - BET NOW!

The Chicago Cubs are a pretty short price to finally overcome the Curse of the Billy Goat and win their first World Series since 1908. You can back them at a best price of 4/5 to win the overall series or at 4/6 to win game two on the road at Progressive Field.   

The Cubs beat the LA Dodgers 5-0 at Wrigley Park on Saturday night, to take the series 4-2 and send the crowd into raptures. Now they have another opportunity to finally lay their ghosts to rest. Chicago have inexplicably lost in their last seven World Series appearances, considered one of the most famous droughts in world sport.

The Cleveland Indians had a pretty easy path to the World Series, defeating the Toronto Blue Jays 4-1 in their American League Championship Series. You can back the underdogs at a best price of evens to win their first Championship since 1948 or 7/5 to win game two of the series.

What’s you recommended MLB World Series bet?

Chicago Cubs To Win The 2016 World Series @ 4/5 - BET NOW!

In what is destined to be one of the most emotional World Series of all time, it’s finally time for the Chicago Cubs to overcome the infamous curse placed on them back in 1945. Owner of the Billy Goat tavern Billy Sianis was asked to leave Wrigley Field because his goat was bothering other patrons, so he said “Those Cubs ain’t gonna win no more.”

And that’s exactly what’s happened. But it can’t go on for ever. The Cubs have suffered some incredible moments of misfortune, once infamously at the hands of one of their own fans, but this year as a team they are simply better than the Indians. They will not be thinking about the curse and it won’t affect them.

The only effect the curse has for us punters is to give us better odds on backing the Cubs to win the World Series, and that’s my recommended bet. Back them to get off to a flying start win the first game of the series too. Once they have the momentum they won’t give it up. You heard it here first, 2016 - the year the curse was put to rest once and for all.
