With so many players here having connections to either the Cubs, the Indians, or the city of Chicago, long-standing fans of baseball in those cities are through the roof with what the 2016 MLB season has become. No matter which side snaps their decades-long championship drought in MLB, the World Series is always some of the most exciting baseball we will see all year.

As far as betting tips go for the Fall Classic, there are a few more things to consider. The first of those is the fact that the pressure on these players it at its highest levels during World Series games and pressure can do funny things at times. Young, lesser known guys step up to the occasion while seasoned vets crumble under it. Trying to determine which side could be affected by those things in a World Series game is tough, but it also makes the handicapping process fun. 

Secondly, it’s only the best of the best left at this stage of the playoffs, and typically the team that’s got a deeper bench and can steal a game or two on the road under the opposition’s rules will hold the trophy at the end. Handicapping starting pitching isn’t a be-all-end-all in these high stakes World Series games as bullpen consideration is a must if you want to find success.
