    Kinda to the point where we might just be better off with the Cubs winning already. Get it the fuck over with and complete their transition into the internationally reviled evil empire.

    That said, they're fucking choke artists. Indians in 6

    I like Jndians in 7. Preferably with the Cubs blowing a huge lead in the Series or game 7

    I think the Cubs will feast on non-Kluber starters. Cubs in 5.

    Jndians are a good team and I think they could win this.

    Game 1 figures to be Lester v. Kluber. Indians are pretty aggressive on the base paths and should give Lester hell, so I think they've got a tremendous shot at Game 1. After that anything could happen, but I expect Arrieta will continue to be shitty.

    Indians could totally win this. 'specially if a bounce or two goes their way.

    Kipnis, Napoli, Lindor and Ramirez all sleep dick up, and Miller has been lights out as well. Cubs have their hands full.

    There's an opportunity to make some money off all of the Cubs' fellatio. Indians are +180 for Game 1. That's an asinine value with Kluber on the mound. They are +160 for the series; not as great, but still extraordinarily inflated.

    I'm planning to emotional hedge by betting Cubs moneyline each game but if the Indians are +180 at home w/ Kluber that seems asinine.

    At least the Indians shouldn't get out managed.

    What does 180 represent?

    Bet $100 to win $180 profit (e.g. get $280 back)

    And the Cubs opened -190 so the flip side is you'd have to bet $190 on the Cubs to win $100 on game one.

    That should normalize closer to game time - probably trying to suck early $$ out of the Cubs euphoria.

    Although there's just going to be a ton of money on the Cubs with no thought behind it so the whole series will be skewed.

    Seeing a lot of Cubs fans thinking they are going to win it in 5...GMAFB. Kluber is going to pitch 2 of those games. I bet he ends up going in games 1,4, & 7.

    Then why the fuck isn't is +80? It's 80 percentage points.

    Probably because you can see moneylines north of +1000, think FBS vs. FCS games or UConn womens basketball, and saying +/-500% or 1250% would be too confusing for most.

    The Cubs team that was playing as of Tuesday was pretty beatable, but this one now is going to be tough to beat, but there are some things that Cleveland can feel good about.

    1. Salazar may be back in some capacity. Bauer should be fully ready. That and Francona's management of that bullpen are favorable.
    2. Francona will have a clue about how to actually affect Lester and they will actually steal if they manage to get on unlike whatever the Dodgers were doing.
    3. Cleveland faced Boston and Toronto, the #s 1 and 9 offenses, on the way to the WS. So the step up to the Cubs at 3 won't be that great compared to the Cubs going from #s 19 and 14 to #5.
    4. If Arrieta and Lackey are what they were in the first two rounds, Cleveland won't let them escape.

    We'll see. Tribe needs to get those first 2 at home and then we can hear about how unfair the HFA determination is.

    Because it's listed in dollars, not percentage points.

    + means bet 100 to profit whatever the number is.
    - means bet whatever the number is to profit 100.

    :fagot: or not, it brings up a legitimate point that my indie-rock Cub fan friends seem to be glossing over. Cubs ownership (except for the lesbian Rickett chick) embraces the absolute worst in politics today. Rich motherfuckers who can never have enough. Fuck the Cubs, yes, but also fuck their greedy-ass owners.

    Will be the first time any Cubs player has worn a batting helmet or batting gloves in the World Series, too.

    Who gives a shit? You think Jerry Reinsdorf most likely doesn't have some asshole political beliefs? We also have no idea where the McCaskey family leans. Most owners of a major sports team are probably huge shitheads.

    Negro, please.

    The Ricketts patriarch doesn't just vote (R) -- he actively funnels millions of dollars to the worst shithead politicians on the entire planet. It isn't even close. One wiener kid is a horrible (R) governor, too.

    And that one fuck looks like Ted Cruz.

    When the Yankees played an intra-league series at Wrigley a few years ago, multiple outlets reported that it was the first time they've played "in Chicago" since Ruth's called shot.
