Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

If the Chicago Cubs are going to be the first team since the 1999-2000 New York Yankees to win back-to-back championships, they might have to get past the equally elite Boston Red Sox to do it.

Bovada released the odds for the early World Series favorites, and the Cubs and Red Sox are tied as front-runners. Other teams with a good shot at winning include the Cleveland Indians, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants, and Washington Nationals.
