Cubs Must Win
The Cubs, after a Cinderella series, now find themselves in a must win situation.
The Cubs are -165 to win the best-of-seven NLCS. Those looking to lay money on the Mets will be looking at a +145 moneyline.
The Cubs are the favorites to win the series with good reason. The Mets and Cubs met seven times in the regular season and the Cubs swept that series. The Mets could only muster up an average around a run against the cubs this season. However, the Cubs cannot get a win over the Mets in this series and now must win.
The total for the game is set at 6.5 runs. The UNDER is 7-3 in the Mets first game at home following a road series. The UNDER is 8-4-1 in Jon Lester’s postseason starts.
