Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck and his Chicago counterpart are betting on the National League Championship Series between the L.A. Dodgers and Chicago Cubs.

If the boys in blue win the playoff series, Chicago Police Department Superintendent Eddie Johnson will send Beck an Al's Italian Beef sandwich. If the Cubs prevail, Beck will send over a world-famous hot pastrami from Langer's Delicatessen-Restaurant.

Beck made a similar wager in 2015 with former LAPD Chief William Bratton, who was also the New York Police Department commissioner, over the Dodgers-New York Mets National League Division Series. The Mets won.

Game 1 of the best-of-seven series is Saturday in Chicago.
