The Cubs won the 2016 World Series. Did you know that? It's true. Since the 2016 World Series is behind us, we're naturally beginning to turn our attention to 2017. On that point, we've already got some odds on who's going win the World Series next year. Would you like to see those odds? Of course you would.

Odds to win the 2017 World Series

As you can see, the Cubs are heavy favorites to repeat. That stands to reason, as pretty much everyone (other than perhaps Dexter Fowler) will return, and the roster of position players is still quite young. They were also, of course, the best team in all of baseball this past season.

If you're looking for a value pick, then the Pirates at 28/1 might be a good one. They're likely to return to contention in 2017, and the young talent in place and on the way makes significant improvement possible next season. Pegging them at 28-1 seems like a bit too long.

People, it's never too early for wholesome, nutritious gambling.
