Chicago Cubs Bookie Guide: 2016 World Series Winners Struggling

The Chicago Cubs bookie will want to reduce their pain this season with the club having won the World Series for the first time in over a hundred years though they were struggling a bit to start of 2017.

PremierPerHead.com offers services such as live in-play wagering for bookies, player prop options and future bets that help to keep losses down.  They also offer line monitoring, including sharp action, so bookies themselves won’t have to be bothered.

The Cubs gave Chicago area bookies fits the past two seasons.  They are projected to win 94 by oddsmakers in 2017 (though priced at -130 to win fewer than that amount) then went on to win the World Series at 5-1 odds midway through the season.

Sports Illustrated had offered this prediction why the Cubs would go on to have great success in 2016:

An even more comfortable Bryant and Schwarber will be joined by star free-agent signings Jason Heyward (eight years, $184 million) and Ben Zobrist (four years, $56 million), each of whom declined more money from other suitors to play for manager Joe Maddon on the North Side. First baseman Anthony Rizzo, who led the club with 30 homers and 101 RBIs last year, is firmly entering his prime at 26; a scout says he wouldn’t be surprised if Rizzo hit .300 with 40 homers, a combination only Nelson Cruz and Bryce Harper reached in 2015. The lineup is so stacked that no one even talks about shortstop Addison Russell, the game’s No. 3 prospect just last spring, much any more.

Ways for Chicago Cubs bookies to reduce their losses in 2017:

*Provide your players with live in-play betting through use of a proven offshore Pay Per Head provider such as Gambling911.com endorsed PremierPerHead.com.

Prior to 2016, the Cubs hadn't won a World Series since 1908 and the odds of a repeat are always slim despite how good a team might be at any given time. 

Get your diehard Cubs fans placing future bets on their team to win the title in 2016.  Their odds are better than in many years past but the odds of another team winning are even greater. 

*Trust the Pay Per Head linesmakers.  You may find a line for a particular starting pitcher a little too attractive to sports bettors but there may be a reason behind this (Pitcher A past performance versus a particular team or left-handers).

*Encourage other forms of gambling such as player prop bets, parlays and totals wagering.
