Betting On Chicago Cubs Online

The world didn’t end, Hell didn’t freeze over, but the Chicago Cubs did win the World Series. Yeah, that really happened. For the first time since the Cubs secured back-to-back World Series championships in 1907 and 1908, they entered a season as defending World Series champs, and did so in epic fashion, rallying from a 3-1 deficit to upend the Cleveland Indians. The Cubs entered the 2016 as the odds on favorite to do exactly that, and now that they have, bet on this – it won’t be another 108 years until they do it again. [+]

The Cubs are a relatively young team built to win for years to come and a repeat performance in 2017 isn’t out of the question.

The Chicago Cubs are one of the founding members of Major League Baseball, now plying their trade in the National League Central Division. 

 

 

Chicago Cubs Next Regular Season Game

Here’s where you will find the Chicago Cubs next opponent, and one thing you know is that when you are the reigning World Series champions, everyone shows up ready to play you and generally brings their A game. [+]

It might take the Cubs a while to adapt to having that target on their chest, so wagering against them early in the season could be an appropriate plan of attack.

Chicago Cubs Game Schedule

The game schedule for the Chicago Cubs is listed below and if it’s anything like the 2016 season, expect dominance from the Cubs. ‘ [+]

They moved into first place on April 8 of the 2016 campaign and never relinquished top spot the rest of the way.

It was difficult to find an area where they struggled. The Cubs won 53 games in the first half and 50 in the second half. They won 57 games at home and 46 on the road. Well, they were 22-23 in one-run games, so maybe that was the one blip on their radar.

Chicago Cubs Could Be Launching A Dynasty

The Cubs are the deepest, steadiest, most complete team in baseball, so another World Series win in 2017 would not be at all shocking, and a long run of success could in the cards for them.

National League MVP Kris Bryant is 24, as is Anthony Rizzo, who could also win an MVP award before he’s done playing. Beyond them, Kyle Schwarber and Javier Baez are 23 and Addison Russell in 22. Yeah, this team is going to be good for a long time.

Chicago Cubs Rotation The Best In Baseball

The Cubs’ pitching staff is so deep they don’t have an ace, they have aces. Jon Lester won 19 games. Jake Arrieta was an 18-game winner. Kyle Hendricks won 16 times and was an NL Cy Young contender.

Backing them was fourth starter John Lackey. The cagey veteran won 11 games.
