The defending MLB World Champions find themselves on the ropes on Wednesday night in a "must win" game. The Chicago Cubs are currently down 0-3 to the #Los Angeles Dodgers with a huge Game 4 at Wrigley Field. Chicago has had serious issues in regard to run production in the series, scoring no more than two runs in Game 1 and no more than one run in each of the last two games. Can they turn it around to stay alive tonight? Here's the latest Dodgers vs. Cubs Game 4 preview with NLCS odds, TV time, channel, and how to watch it on a #live stream feed.

In Game 3 in Chicago, the Dodgers collected a 6-1 victory. Chris Taylor had two of L.A.'s RBI while Andre Either recorded the other. For the Cubs, only Kyle Schwarber produced an RBI from his early solo home run which gave Chicago a 1-0 lead. However, Kyle Hendricks gave up a two-run home run to Taylor, giving them the lead. So far for the series, the Cubs have been held in check by the Dodgers' pitching staff.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are pretty much sitting in cruise control tonight, though. A win puts them into the World Series against either the New York Yankees or Houston Astros. On the mound will be Jake Arrieta for the Chicago Cubs and Alex Wood looking to help close out the series for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

For tonight's odds, both teams have very close odds to win. The #Home Team is listed as -105 to -106 at Odds Shark's collected sportsbook odds.
