Chicago Cubs vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
This game features 2 of the best teams in the National League. I think that it has the chance to be an entertaining one.
I have been impressed with the Cubs this year, but they are not on the same level as the Dodgers. I also like the fact that Los Angeles is playing at home.
Jake Arrieta has really struggled this year and I think that trend will continue on Friday night. I look for the Dodgers to have success against the right hander. I am not sure how long Gonsolin will go, but I think he can do enough against the Cubs. They will need to their bullpen to be effective in order to win.
I will take the Dodgers on the run line.
