The Line: Milwaukee Brewers +120 / Los Angeles Dodgers -130 --- Over/Under: 9 See the Latest Odds
The Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers begin a three-game series early Tuesday night.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look to keep rolling after winning nine of their last 13 games. The Dodgers have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 14 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers offense seems to pick its spots, but they’ve won five of their last seven games when scoring more than three runs. Corey Seager leads Los Angeles with 89 hits, Adrian Gonzalez has 33 RBI and Justin Turner has 11 home runs. Julio Urias gets the nod, and he’s 0-2 with a 4.33 ERA and 35 strikeouts this season. This will be Urias’ second career game against the Brewers.

The Milwaukee Brewers could use a win after losing eight of their last 12 games. The Brewers have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Milwaukee Brewers offense has been hit or miss all season, but they have won six of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Jonathan Villar leads Milwaukee with 81 hits, Ryan Braun has 38 RBI and Jonathan Lucroy has 10 home runs. Chase Anderson takes the hill, and he’s 4-7 with a 5.13 ERA and 60 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 1-2 with a 5.05 ERA and 38 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 8-0 in their last 8 Tuesday games and 6-14 in their last 20 during game 1 of a series. The Brewers are 4-1 in their last 5 games following an off day and 3-9 in Andersons last 12 starts. The Dodgers are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Both offenses have shown signs of life as of late and both of these pitchers are hittable, especially Urias who is still trying to find his footing in MLB play. I'll side with the over in this spot.
