Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

LAS VE­GAS >> The Chicago Cubs have opened as heavy fa­vorites to beat the Cleveland In­di­ans in the World Se­ries.

John Avello, who makes the odds at the Wynn Las Ve­gas, set the line Satur­day night af­ter the Cubs beat the Dodgers in the clinch­ing Game 6 of the NL Cham­pi­onship Se­ries.

Avello says a bet­tor would have to wa­ger $220 on the Cubs to win $100. A $100 bet on the In­di­ans would pay $190 if they win.

Game 1 is Tues­day night in Cleveland.

The Cubs, with a health­ier ro­ta­tion than Cleveland, are try­ing to win their first crown since 1908. The In­di­ans haven’t won the ti­tle since 1948.
