MLB Playoffs 2016: Updated World Series projections, odds, probabilities

On Monday, the Indians topped the Blue Jays yet again in ALCS play and in doing so moved within one win of the pennant. The Cubs and Dodgers, meantime, were on a travel day, and the NLCS remains locked a 1-1. As all four teams get set to play on Tuesday, let's check out the current World Series odds.

Per SportsLine, here are each playoff team's chances to win the LCS and World Series, sorted by World Series championship chances:

Team Win LCS Win WS
Cleveland Indians 93.1% 40.6%
Chicago Cubs 54.3% 30.6%
Los Angeles Dodgers 45.7% 25.8%
Toronto Blue Jays 6.9% 3.0%

Being up 3-0, the Indians obviously have the healthiest odds of any of the four teams left standing. Accordingly, the Blue Jays are now in longshot territory.

With ALCS and NLCS play scheduled for Tuesday, expect a lot of movement -- and perhaps the elimination of Toronto -- before next time.
