It’s hard to sell the Dodgers right now with four straight losses, an offense that’s not producing and they were just no-hit last night. However, the Cubs have have had their issues as well this week and Jake Arrieta is back to stinking up the joint. This is a spot the Dodgers should bounce back. Give me the Dodgers and the RL for max betting value.
