Nate Silver gives the Cubs s 62% chance of winning the Series

Even Nate Silver likes the Cubs' chances of winning the Series at this point.

It's now a best-three-out-of-five series.

Three of the five will be played right in a row at Wrigley.

The Indians will be bringing back their ace, Mr. Kluber, back on short rest in Game 4 because he did so well against the Cubs in Game 1. Of course, the Dodgers used the same logic in pitching Kershaw the second time.

The Cubs will send the MLB ERA leader, Kyle Hendricks, to the mound tomorrow. Then probably WS veteran John Lackey. Then probably Lester, who won't repeat his Game 1 disaster.

And then Arrieta.
