The World Series is set.
The Chicago Cubs will represent the NL while the Cleveland Indians will represent the AL.
Both teams will look to gain the upperhand in Game 1 from Cleveland on Tuesday as the Indians gained home field advantage thanks to the American League’s win in the All Star Game.
The Chicago Cubs postseason path has been filled with drama and come from behind performances.
After going up 2-0 on the Giants, the Cubs fell in Game 3 and looked as if they were going to fall in Game 4, which would have sent the series back to Chicago. The Cubs rallied for 4 runs in the top of the 9th inning en route to a game clinching victory sending them to the NLCS against the Dodgers.
Chicago went down 2-1 to the Dodgers and got a huge offensive breakout after getting shutout in back to back games to really find their groove. The Cubs followed that up with a 10 spot in Game 5 and slammed the door shut in Game 6 to advance.
They’ll likely send out LH Jon Lester here, who has a pair of wins this postseason.
Lester has allowed just 2 runs in 3 starts, pitching 6.0, 7.0, and 8.0 innings in the three. The LH has been on point, allowing just 14 hits in the combined starts.
His key will be holding the Indians runners. Cleveland likes to be aggressive and Lester is a pitcher to steal off of.
The Cleveland Indians road to the World Series is one nobody would believe unless they were there to witness it.
After losing their 2nd and 3rd starters, their best OF, and a compliment of other key pieces, Cleveland overcame everything.
Game 3 of the ALCS was the most Indians type of game ever as the SP Trevor Bauer went out in the Bottom of the 1st inning with his pinky finger leaking blood that he injured while repairing a drone.
The Indians were forced to turn it into a bullpen game where everybody played a crucial role and fulfilled their roles in a 4-2 victory.
They’ll send out RH Corey Kluber here, who has to turn in a solid outing for the Tribe.
Kluber pitched 7.0 shutout innings against Boston in Game 2 of the ALDS, but lasted just 5.0 innings while allowing 2 runs and taking the loss in Game 4 in Toronto while pitching on 3 days rest.
Kluber will have his full rest here and will need to set the tone for the Indians rotation.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
Cleveland has been a solid Under bet all postseason long.
With nerves and aces going here, this one is going to be rather lower scoring with very limited run scoring opportunities.

With cold temps in the forecast, this is going to be a low scoring affair as both teams will play small ball for runs.
