Dodgers vs Cubs Game 1 Prediction:

The Chicago Cubs are just one round away from the World Series. What stands in their way? One of the great franchises in baseball history. The Dodgers did have to go five games against the Washington Nationals to get here and they used Kershaw as a closer in game 5 so he isn’t available for this game. The Cubs had enough time to set their rotation and will start with Jon Lester. Lester went 19-5 with an ERA of 19-5 and at home he went 10-2 with a 1.74 ERA. Against the Dodgers he had one start this year and went 7.0 innings for the win while giving up one earned run.

The Dodgers will send out Kenta Maeda to pitch game 1. He was 16-11 with a 3.48 ERA. In September he was 3-2 with a 2.73 ERA. He did get lit up by Washington in the playoffs giving up 4 runs in just 3 innings of work.
