The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook has installed the Chicago Cubs as the favorite to win the 2015 World Series.

After beating the St. Louis Cardinals 6–4 in Game 4 of the NLDS on Tuesday, Chicago is now a 5-to-2 favorite to win the World Series. At the start of the season the Cubs were given 40-to-1 odds of winning the World Series.

Tuesday marked the first postseason series win for the Cubs at Wrigley Field. Chicago will play for the National League pennant for the first time in over a decade.

The Cubs will face either the Los Angeles Dodgers or New York Mets in the NLCS.

The Dodgers and Mets play Thursday night in a deciding Game 5 of the NLDS.
