Chicago Cubs: Vegas releases 2019 over/under win totals
This season’s projected win totals for Major League Baseball hit the Web today. How do the Chicago Cubs stack up in the National League? Pretty well actually.
Fresh off a 95-win season, the Chicago Cubs are looking toward 2019 in a positive light. This week’s win projections, courtesy of Caesars Entertainment Corporation, certainly won’t hurt matters either.
The team dealt with much adversity last year, following the season-ending injury to prized offseason free-agent acquisition Yu Darvish, as well as an injury-filled year for All-Star and former NL Most Valuable Player Kris Bryant.
Last offseason, the club faced a projected 94.5 win total. They ultimately clawed their way to a successful season by most measures, and look to build on their 2018 campaign. The hopeful returns of a healthy Darvish and Bryant could be a key difference in whether this team can reach the triple-digit win total.
Interestingly, however, the Cubs have failed to make a prominent addition during this offseason. The rest of the division, meanwhile, has upped their arsenal of weapons as they look to continue to drive competition moving forward.
