MLB Handicapping: Chicago Cubs are doing things no one has ever seen

04.25.2016     08:47 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Nineteen games into the season and the Chicago Cubs are producing at a ridiculously high (and unsustainable) level. Take the simple concept of run differential. Toronto's +1.4 runs per game from last season is the best the league has seen over the last decade. The Cubs are one pace to destroy that with a current mark of +3.6. To put it in perspective: Seattle won 116 games in 2001 and finished +1.9. The 1927 Yankees -- who are commonly referred to as the greatest team in history -- were +2.4. And if you've been betting the Cubs on the run-line, you're already up nearly +10 units! 

2016: Chicago Cubs +3.6 
2015: Toronto +1.4 
2014: Oakland +1.0 
2013: Boston/St. Louis +1.2 
2012: Washington/NY Yankees +0.8 
2011: NY Yankees +1.3 
2010: NY Yankees +1.0 
2009: NY Yankees/LA Dodgers +1.0 
2008: Chicago Cubs +1.1 
2007: Boston +1.3 
2006: NY Yankees +1.0
