CBS Baseball Experts on Indians-Cubs Game 7: Split Right Down the Middle

We’ve been keeping track all series long with CBS’ baseball experts and how they think each game will play out in the Indians and Cubs World Series.

Today the all important game seven, the six writers are again split down the middle, as they were last night for game six, and we all know how that all ended up.

All but one feel that it will be a low scoring affair, and that as usual in a 7th game, the pitching will be the key for both sides.

Here’s the six predictions:

Game 7 Winner Score Commentary
R.J. Anderson 3-1 Kluber-Miller-Allen shuts down the Cubs‘ lineup.
Mike Axisa 3-0 The Klubot goes into terminator mode and shines even though he’s starting for the third time in nine days. Miller and Allen do what they do in the late innings. Offensive hero: Jason Kipnis.
Jonah Keri 3-2 Javier Baez sheds the Pedro Cerrano label with a ninth-inning home run for the ages.
Dayn Perry 4-2 Kluber is effective once again on short rest and Andrew Miller lifts a heavy load after Kluber exits in the sixth. Francisco Lindor hits a big two-out double.
Bill Reiter 4-3 Kluber turns over a three-hit gem to Miller before the wheels come off in the most stunning eighth inning in Cubs — and World Series — history. Bill Murray spontaneously combusts on live television shortly thereafter.
Matt Snyder 7-2 They get to Kluber early in Game 7 for three runs in three innings and then destiny takes over.
