Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
This game will be a good one just like Tuesday when the Dodgers won with an Arrieta start. I’m taking the Cubs in this one, because why not? The Cubs are the best team in baseball with regardless who they have pitching.
Only way I’d go against them here is if Clayton Kershaw somehow found the bump before first pitch.
