The Cubs squad starts the MLB season tied with the American League's Boston Red Sox for the best current odds, as of March 31. Both teams' odds stand at +450, per Bovada, while the Cubs' Westgate Las Vegas odds are set at 7-2 as of March 31, while the Red Sox are at 7.

The Chicago Cubs made history last season when they ended a 108-year World Series drought, winning it all against the Cleveland Indians in an epic seven-game series. In 2017, the Cubs are expected to dominate yet again, backed by the hitting power of players like Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo and a studded pitching lineup that includes Jon Lester, Jake Arrieta and Kyle Hendricks.

If a World Series championship wasn't enough within itself, team manager Theo Epstein recently topped Fortune's list of the 50 greatest leaders.

The Chicago Cubs are also favored at +175 to win the National League pennant, but it looks like the Boston Red Sox might give them a run for their money if it comes down to a Cubs-Red Sox World Series.

The Red Sox acquired star pitcher Chris Sale in the off-season, adding power to their pitching staff that also includes David Price, Rick Porcello and Steven Wright.

In looking to fill the roster hole left in the wake of longtime power man and designated hitter David Ortiz's retirement, the Red Sox have moved Hanley Ramirez from first base to the DH spot, swapping in newly-signed Mitch Moreland at first base. Ramirez ended 2016 with 30 home runs and a .286 batting average.

The Boston team, led by head coach John Farrell, starts the season with +225 odds to win the American League pennant.

Other favored teams include the Washington Nationals, Cleveland Indians and Los Angeles Dodgers. The first games of the 2017 MLB season will be played on Sunday, April 2 and Monday, April 3 -- with 15 divisional matchups over the course of those two days.
