The Cubs have a 6.6-percent chance of ending their 106-year World Series drought, according to FanGraphs.com.
Chicago’s odds rank seventh-best among all MLB teams, with the best odds belonging to Toronto at 18.7 percent.
The Blue Jays are followed by the Dodgers (16 percent), Royals (13.7 percent), Mets (8.3 percent), Cardinals (7.2 percent), Rangers (7.1 percent) and Astros (6.7 percent).
Despite owning the third-best record in baseball, the Cubs are considered more of a long shot to win the World Series because they’re forced to play in the wild-card game against Pittsburgh, who owns baseball’s second-best record.
Pittsburgh has a 6.5 percent chance to win the title, according to Fan Graphs.
The Cubs claimed their last world championship in 1908, when Chicago defeated Detroit in five games.
