Can Anyone Topple Cubs Off Top Of MLB FuturesBy Jonathan K.
The Chicago Cubs are still on top of the MLB futures and have been there since the first week of the MLB season.
Here is the history:
The last time the Cubs weren’t on top of the MLB futures was the first week of the season., Then, the Royals were the top favorites of the 2016 World Series odds after beating the New York Mets in Five games this past World Series. Meanwhile, the Mets were right behind them at 10-1. The Chicago Cubs and Toronto Blue Jays, NLCS and ALCS runners up, were right behind the Mets also with 10-1.
The odds have been shaken up a bit since then. The Cubs sit on top. The San Francisco Giants dropped far since the last time we checked in with the odds.World Series runner-ups the Mets have climbed there way up to the second best MLB futures last month but have since fallen far.
The defending champs, the Royals, continue to play good baseball, but not good enough to compete with those at the top of the odds. They sit with the ninth best future odds.
