Cubs Rebound versus Tribe, Reclaim Frontrunner Status

This post is one in a series about the 2016 MLB Playoffs and World Series.

Last night, the Chicago Cubs did unto the Cleveland Indians what the Indians did unto them the night before. By knotting up the 2016 World Series at one game apiece, the North Siders established themselves as 65% favorites as they head back home to Wrigley.

In the most frequently simulated scenario, the Cubs win out and claim their first World Series title in 108 years at home in game five. The Indians best hope is a seven game series that ends with Cleveland claiming its first title in 68 years at Progressive Field.

Game three will have the greatest impact of any game in this postseason thus far. Check back afterwards to see how it affects each team's standing in the remaining contests of the 2016 postseason.
