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

On Tuesday, the Blue Jays ensured life for another day as they took Game 4 of the ALCS against the Indians and cut their series deficit to 3-1. Out in L.A., the Dodgers suffocated Cubs bats yet again in Game 3 and now lead the NLCS by a count of two games to one. That means it's time for a reset of our LCS and World Series odds.

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

Team Win LCS Win WS
Los Angeles Dodgers
70.4% 40.9%
Cleveland Indians 86.6% 36.4%
Chicago Cubs
29.6% 17.0%

Needless to say, the Dodgers' win in Game 3 over the Cubs was a critical one, as it drastically improved their postseason outlook.

As for Wednesday's slate, all four teams will be in action, and the Blue Jays are once again one game from elimination. Likewise, though, they're one game from sending the series back to Cleveland.
