SHARE Cubs are no longer the favorites to win World Series

After a disappointing start to the season that leaves the Cubs two games under .500 at the All-Star break, the 2016 World Series champions are no longer the favorite to repeat.

The Cubs began the year as co-favorites with the Red Sox at 9-2 to win the World Series but have since fallen to 8-1, according to the latest odds from Bovada.

Even as of June 1 the Cubs were 5-1 favorites, but their struggle to get on track deeper into the season has dropped them considerably.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are the current favorite at 7-2 followed by the Houston Astros at 17-4, the Boston Red Sox at 6-1 and the Washington Nationals at 7-1.

The Cleveland Indians, losers of the 2016 World Series, are tied with the Cubs at 8-1.
