Chicago’s chances of landing the 2016 Summer Olympics are looking better and better. The Sporting News reported on Sunday that the London bookmakers make the Windy City the favorite. Ladbrokes lists Chicago (8-11) ahead of Rio de Janeiro (11-4), Tokyo (5-1) and Madrid (8-1). The IOC vote is Friday in Copenhagen, and the big question is whether President Obama will make the trip to sell his hometown to the Olympics bigshots.
