The 2018 World Series is finally set Ivan Rodriguez Jersey , with the Los Angeles Dodgers advancing from the National League Championship Series to take on the Boston Red Sox.After winning a franchise-record 108 games during the regular season, the Red Sox have carried that success over to the postseason. They have gone 7-2 in their two series victories over the New York Yankees and Houston Astros, putting them in prime position to win a fourth World Series title since 2004.The Dodgers are the first National League team to play in back-to-back World Series since the 2008-09 Philadelphia Phillies. After coming up short in last year's Fall Classic against the Astros, they will look to end the franchise's 30-year championship drought. 2018 World Series ScheduleGame 1 (Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 8:09 p.m. ET): Dodgers at Red SoxGame 2 (Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 8:09 p.m. ET): Dodgers at Red SoxGame 3 (Friday, Oct. 26 at 8:09 p.m. ET): Red Sox at DodgersGame 4 (Saturday, Oct. 27 at 8:09 p.m. ET): Red Sox at DodgersGame 5* (Sunday, Oct. 28 at 8:15 p.m. ET): Red Sox at DodgersGame 6* (Tuesday, Oct. 30 at 8:09 p.m. ET): Dodgers at Red SoxGame 7* (Wednesday, Oct. 31 at 8:09 p.m. ET): Dodgers at Red Sox*If necessary PreviewEarly betting odds for the World Series favor the Red Sox to raise their ninth championship flag in franchise history.Per OddsShark, Boston is currently receiving -130 odds (bet $130 to win $100).Despite leading MLB with 108 wins during the regular season, the Red Sox started the playoffs with significant questions about their pitching staff. Their relievers' ERA of 3.72 ranked seventh out of 10 playoff teams.After Boston closed out Houston in the ALCS, the middle relievers out of the bullpen turned into a huge asset. Ryan Brasier and Matt Barnes have combined to allow five hits and one run with 11 strikeouts in 13.1 innings.Brasier, in particular, has been an unsung hero for manager Alex Cora. The 31-year-old had a 1.60 ERA in 34 games this season, his first full year in the big leagues."He's been amazing for us," Cora told reporters after Game 4 against the Astros. "He's a great story. Everybody knows about it. "Attacks the zone, gets swings and misses in the zone. Expands it and that was another guy that we knew in October he could give us multiple innings, more than three outs. And tonight he was outstanding."Boston's starting rotation looks more dangerous now. Chris Sale is healthy and set to start Game 1 after missing Game 5 against Houston through illness, while David Price should play Game 2 after securing his first playoff win as a starter with six shutout innings on Thursday against Houston.Offense hasn't been a problem for the Red Sox all year. Their 56 runs scored are 14 more than any other team in the playoffs. They led MLB in runs scored (876) , hits (1,509), doubles (355), batting average (.268), on-base percentage (.339) and slugging percentage (.453) during the regular season.Because the Red Sox are able to score in bunches, their pitching staff doesn't have to be great for them to win. Getting both sides playing at their peak at this stage of the postseason is why they are favored to win a World Series.Unlike the Red Sox, the Dodgers have been unable to carry their offensive success from the regular season over the playoffs. Their 235 homers during the season led the NL, but they were complemented by a lineup that ranked third in MLB with a .774 OPS.During the playoffs, Los Angeles' .667 OPS is the worst among the four teams that made it to the league championship series.The Dodgers will also have to correct their hitting against left-handed pitching if they want to win their first World Series title since 1988. Their OPS was 63 points lower against southpaws (.733) than it was against right-handed pitching (.796) in the regular season.The upside for Los Angeles is Boston only had one left-handed reliever on the ALCS roster鈥擡duardo Rodriguez鈥攕o if the NL champs can get Price and Sale out of the game early, their lineup will have a decided advantage.This World Series will also be the latest in a series of litmus tests for Clayton Kershaw, though his playoff struggles have always been overblown:Jon Weisman jonweismanClayton Kershaws start today went from red to yellow to orange to green, as in great. In a polarizing postseason career, this was Kershaws 11th career start allowing two runs or fewer. #Dodgers #NLCS #MLB 6pWAd255PaKershaw can erase every playoff narrative that's ever been written about him if he's able to shut down this Boston lineup to get the Dodgers back to the top of the MLB mountain.The Red Sox have been the best team in MLB all season. They have already defeated two teams in the playoffs that won at least 100 games during the regular season.Nothing about Boston's playoff run to this point suggests a letdown is coming in the World Series. After waiting 86 years between championships before 2004, the Red Sox are embarking on a modern-day dynasty if they can win a fourth title in 14 years. The celebration in Milwaukee is over, and now the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox get down to the serious business of winning the World Series.The Dodgers showed plenty of character and confidence in winning the seventh game of the National League Championship Series against the Milwaukee Brewers on the road. They had lost Game 6 and the momentum, but young Walker Buehler shut down the Milwaukee bats while Cody Bellinger and Yasiel Puig each hit home runs to seize control.The Brewers had been razor sharp as they reached the NLCS and had the look of a team of destiny, but the Dodgers were able to quell Milwaukee's momentum and find a way back to the World Series for a second consecutive year.Los Angeles fell a game short as it lost to the Houston Astros in seven games, and now they have to take on a juggernaut of a Red Sox team that beat the Astros in five games in the ALCS.The World Series opens Tuesday night at Fenway Park, and the Red Sox have home-field advantage based on their 108-win season. World Series ScheduleTuesday, October 23 (Game 1): Los Angeles Dodgers at Boston Red Sox, 8:09 p.m. ETWednesday Prince Fielder Jersey , October 24 (Game 2):Los Angeles DodgersatBoston Red Sox, 8:09 p.m. ETFriday, October 26 (Game 3):Boston Red SoxatLos Angeles Dodgers, 8:09 p.m. ETSaturday, October 27 (Game 4):Boston Red SoxatLos Angeles Dodgers, 8:09 p.m. ETSunday, October 28 (Game 5, if necessary):Boston Red SoxatLos Angeles Dodgers, 8:15 p.m. ETTuesday, October 30 (Game 6, if necessary):Los Angeles DodgersatBoston Red Sox, 8:09 p.m. ETWednesday, October 31 (Game 7, if necessary):Los Angeles DodgersatBoston Red Sox, 8:09 p.m. ETAll World Series games will be televised by Fox.The series commences with two of the best pitchers in the game facing each other. The Dodgers will send Clayton Kershaw to the mound, while Chris Sale will get the start for the Red Sox.Kershaw has been a dominant regular-season pitcher throughout his career, as he made the All-Star team every season from 2011 through 2017. He has a career regular-season record of 153-69 with a 2.39 earned-run average and a 1.005 WHIP.However, the 30-year-old has been an ordinary pitcher in the postseason with a 9-8 career record and a 4.09 ERA and a 1.057 WHIP.Kershaw pitched the final inning of Game 7 against the Brewers, but he does not expect those 15 pitches to have any impact on his effectiveness in Game 1 against Boston."It was fine," he said, per Alden Gonzalez of"It was somewhat of a normal inning , which was good. I tried to throw as few pitches as possible in the bullpen before."Sale has been a dominant pitcher in his nine-year career, and the first seven of those seasons came with the Chicago White Sox. He was traded to Boston after the 2016 season, and last year was the first time he had a chance to pitch in the postseason.He struggled in two games against the Astros in 2017, but he looked good in the ALDS against the Yankees this year as he allowed two runs in 6.1 innings and picked up a win in the series opener.Sale has had shoulder difficulties in the second half of the season, and he was not at his best against the Astros in Game 1 of the ALCS. However, he has not pitched since October 13, and the Red Sox are hoping he will be at full strength for this game.The Red Sox are minus-145 favorites to earn the win in the World Series opener, while the Dodgers are plus-125 underdogs, per OddsShark. A Red Sox backer has to risk $145 to win $100, while Dodger supporters will put up $100 to win $125.Kershaw will try to hold the powerful Red Sox lineup in check with his superb fastball and 12-to-6 curveball.Boston led the major leagues in runs scored, and they are led by the intimidating combination of Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez.Betts had 32 home runs and 30 stolen bases in addition to leading the major leagues with a .346 batting average, while Martinez hammered 43 home runs and led the major leagues with 130 runs batted in and had a .330 batting average.The Dodgers are a solid offensive team that showed the ability to hit the long ball. Seven Dodgers hit 21 or more home runs, led by Max Muncy who pounded 35 long balls. Sale will try to limit Los Angeles with his slider and fastball.PredictionThe Dodgers should have an excellent chance in Game 1, because Kershaw has a chance to shut the Red Sox down if he is at his best. However, if he is anything but, the advantage swings to the Red Sox.Sale is also a shutdown pitcher, but it's difficult to predict that he will be overpowering because of the difficulties he faced in the second half of the season.Look for a low-scoring game, and we expect the Red Sox to figure it out in the late innings. Boston wins Game 1 as Betts and Martinez set the tone for the rest of the World Series.
