A Look at the Final Four Teams in the World Series Race


With both the NL and AL Championship Series now in full swing, now is the time to examine the best odds as to who will advance to the Fall Classic and win.

Cleveland Indians vs. Toronto Blue Jays: As the 94-win AL Central champion continue their quest for their third World Series title—and first since 1948—it has been a case of quality pitching led by AL Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber, Josh Tomlin, a strong bullpen led by Andrew Miller and timely hitting, have all be frustrated the potent Toronto Blue Jays thru the first three games.

Looking to reach the Fall Classic against the heavily-favored 103-win Chicago Cubs, who are the heavy World Series favorites according to all of the top sportsbooks online, can the Tribe overcome all odds and win?

Chicago Cubs vs Los Angeles Dodgers: Over in the NLCS, the forementioned Cubs face off against one of the premier left-handers of this generation in Clayton Kershaw. With the series tied at 1-1, and the next three games out in Chavez Ravine, can the Cubs overcome Kershaw and an upset-minded Los Angeles Dodgers squad, hoping to win their first World Series title—and sixth overall—since 1988?

A potential dark horse to win the Fall Classic, Los Angeles has Kershaw and experienced World Series champion hitters in Adrian Gonzalez, Chase Utley and up-and-coming young sluggers such as Joc Pederson and the always volatile and dangerous Yasiel Puig, Los Angeles is a worthy long shot that you can go all in on.

Considering the Cubs history in the NLCS, and the Dodgers recent surge in momentum, don’t be shocked to see heavy action on Los Angeles, the longer the series goes on.
