MLB Roundtable: NLDS Predictions
Giants or Dodgers? Brewers or Braves? Our experts make their picks. Each of the four remaining National League teams are playing without at least one of their best players due to injury.The Dodgers will not have first baseman Max Muncy and lefthander Clayton Kershaw when they face the rival Giants in the postseason for the first time ever.

Game 5: 'If you have a pulse or you're a sports fan, you better be watching Dodgers-Giants'
In the second half, both teams had won 50 games (the Giants played and lost two more than the Dodgers did). Essentially neck-in-neck, as the Dodgers dominated but ultimately failed to gain on the Giants. Because they share a division, the Dodgers were forced into a wild-card game against the St. Louis Cardinals, which they won in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving them 107 wins of their own going into the historic heavyweight NLDS against the Giants. The winners of the first four games went like this: Giants, Dodgers, Giants, Dodgers. One apiece in L.A. and San Francisco. Of course. Not one of those games featured a single lead change.
TBS will continue its National League playoff coverage with coverage of every NLCS game.
The Braves secured their spot in the NLCS, and depending on who takes the Dodgers vs. Giants series, they could either start on the road or at home.
