The Cubs reached the National League Championship Series last season before falling to the New York Mets and are the favorites in Las Vegas to win their first championship since 1908, according to Oddsshark.com. They voiced their appreciation for the Blackhawks ahead of Game 1 of the National League Division Series against the San Francisco Giants at Wrigley Field on Friday.
