While the Cubs might be favored to win the World Series, don’t expect a 100-plus win season. That’s what Atlantis Casino in Reno suggests with its opening win totals for the 2016 MLB season.

Atlantis figures the Cubs to win around 89 games and has the White Sox at 80.5. The San Francisco Giants (90) were the only team posted with a higher total than the Cubs; the Mets are at 88.
From the Sporting News Linemakers:
“Baseball fans are talking about the Cubs like they’ve already won the NL Central and World Series, and I’ve even heard a few say they’re a lock to win 100 games. But maybe we should reel in the excitement just a bit. No book is going to hang a number in the mid-90s, and in a division that they in no way have a strangehold on, 89 seems right for Chicago.”
