LAS VEGAS (AP) 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.
