October 15, 2016 by Douglas A. McIntyre

As the Chicago Cubs and L.A. Dodgers match up in the NLCS, Cubs tickets have soared to over $1,400 for a seventh game (if the series makes it that far, of course).  The average price for all seven games is $417.59

Here’s an analysis of tickets for all seven games from ticketiQ:

NLCS overall avg: $417.59
Home games at Wrigley Field (1, 2, 6, 7): $812.08
Home games at Dodger Stadium (3-5): $344.23
Game 1: $569 average/$172 get-in
Game 2: $553/$214
Game 3: $308/$99
Game 4: $320/$93
Game 5: $418/$102
Game 6: $1,244/$399
Game 7: $1,435/$490

An their more in-depth analysis:

It’s official – the Los Angeles Dodgers will face the Chicago Cubs in the 2016 NLCS. In a monumental Game 5 in the nation’s capital, Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers were able to stave off Daniel Murphy and the Washington Nationals, and they’ll now battle the Cubs for rights to the 2016 World Series.

Fans may best serve their wallets attending games in Los Angeles, however, as the average resale price for Cubs vs. Dodgers NLCS tickets is more than double in Chicago than in Los Angeles.

On TicketIQ, Cubs NLCS tickets now average $812.08 across all four potential games at Wrigley Field. While that is a notable dip from the team’s record-setting LCS average just two days ago, it is still substantially more expensive than what the Dodgers are seeing across their three possible NLCS games at Dodger Stadium.

With Games 3-5 set in Chavez Ravine, the average resale price for Dodgers NLCS tickets is currently $344.23. That makes the Cubs’ average price 136 percent higher than the Dodgers’. Over the seven-game series, the average price for 2016 NLCS tickets is $417.59.
