Tribe Huge Favorites to End Sixty-Eight-Year Title Drought

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

The Cleveland Indians are one win away from their first World Series title since 1948. There's an 86% chance the Tribe will get there, according to my simulations. The Chicago Cubs will need to force a seventh game in Cleveland if they're to end their far longer, more legendary drought. It's not out of the question, but the odds are long.

In 41 out of every 100 runs of the simulator, Cleveland completes the feat tonight on the North Side of Chicago. Will the Cubs keep their World Series dreams alive? Will the Indians close it out at Wrigley? Either way, I'll be back with new projections or a recap of this exciting 2016 MLB postseason.
