There are just 9 teams with a legit shot to win the World Series

MLB Commish Calls In

We have more than half of the MLB season left to play, and yet the number of teams that still have a legit shot to win the World Series is only nine, and three of those teams are heads and shoulders above the rest.

The Chicago Cubs remain the heavy favorite, with a 18 percent chance to win it all, according to Nate Silver's Five Thirty Eight. The Cleveland Indians have separated themselves from the pack in the American League, with a 13 percent chance to be World Series champs. The San Francisco Giants (11 percent) are the only other team above 7 percent.

In all, there are nine teams with at least a 5 percent chance of winning the World Series. See the chart below; record in parentheses.
