With the 2016 World Series now tied 1-1, betting on the Cleveland Indians with Bovada could earn you some serious cash.
Game two of the World Series just wrapped up, and it was the masterful pitching of Jake Arrieta that helped the Chicago Cubs secure the victory. It’s now 1-1 in the seven game series, and the Cleveland Indians remain significant underdogs heading into game three.
Current 2016 World Series Odds
- Chicago Cubs: -225
- Cleveland Indians: +185
At this point, betting on the Cleveland Indians could be the best option for sports fans. Bovada still lists them as the heavy underdogs to win the World Series at +185, and if the Cubs make US gambling news by winning game three, you can expect Cleveland’s odds to get even better.
The next game will feature two highly-touted pitchers in Kyle Hendricks and Josh Tomlin facing off. It will be the Cubs receiving the hole-field advantage for the first time in the series, and you can bet on Chicago fans adding some extra motivation for their team on game day.
Key Players to Watch on Saturday
All eyes will be on the pitchers during game three, but it will be up to Ben Zobrist and Kyle Schwarber to keep the Cubs’ offense flowing. Cleveland’s aggressive base path strategy has yet to really materialize, aside from a well-time steal from Francisco Lindor in game 1. Rajai Davis will also need to pick up the pace, as he has been on base only once in seven batting appearances during this World Series.
Making a bet on the Indians doesn’t have to be as risky as playing poker in Dubai. There’s no denying the Cubs have the more promising lineup, and that’s exactly why betting on the Cleveland Indians could earn you serious money. 6 of Chicago’s starting players are under the age of 24, and while many online sportsbooks in the US see that as an advantage, many experts feel it could actually hurt the team due to the inexperience playing on such a big stage.
