Major League Baseball starts this afternoon and a midwest team is favored to win the World Series.

The oddsmakers have made their predictions and Cubs fans are going to love to hear this! The Chicago Cubs along with the San Francisco Giants are the odds-on favorite to take the 2016 World Series. Both teams made great deals in the offseason with free-agent signings.

You can see where you team stacks up according to Vegas below and even though I would say if you're a fan of the Reds, Padres, Braves, Phillies, or Rockies (all 100 to 1 odds) better luck next year, you never know. After all, it's opening day and hope spring eternal for everyone... at least for a few days.
