When the two teams square off this evening in a Windy City showdown from Wrigley Field, Illinois bettors will be able to get 100-1 odds on either squad thanks to an insane special at DraftKings at Casino Queen Sportsbook. With it, bettors have the ability to wager $1 on either team and get $100 if that team wins.
