The Line: Milwaukee Brewers +142 / Los Angeles Dodgers -154 -- Over/Under: 8.5
The Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Friday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.
The Milwaukee Brewers could use a win here after losing four of their last five games. The Brewers have allowed 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Milwaukee Brewers are 3-5 this season when allowing four or more runs. Offensively, Lorenzo Cain leads the Brewers with 18 hits and three RBI while Christian Yelich and Yasmani Grandal have combined for 30 hits and 20 RBI. Corbin Burnes gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 9.90 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. Burnes is 1-0 with a 7.71 ERA and three strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a victory here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Dodgers have allowed 22 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 11 of their first 14 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost five of their last eight games when allowing four or more runs. Offensively, Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 23 hits and 19 RBI while Justin Turner and Enrique Hernandez have combined for 30 hits and 18 RBI. Julio Urias gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 3.12 ERA and nine strikeouts this season. Urias is 1-0 with a 1.64 ERA and 14 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 20-7 in their last 27 games following an off day, 37-15 in their last 52 during game 1 of a series and 17-8 in their last 25 road games. The Dodgers are 23-9 in their last 32 home games, 38-18 in their last 56 Friday games and 1-5 in Urias' last 6 home starts. The Brewers are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles and the under is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings. The over is 9-4 in Dodgers last 13 overall. The under is 7-3-1 in Brewers last 11 overall.
The Dodgers pitching staff has been shaky at best out the gate, but returning home should help and Urias has been solid in his first couple of starts. We can't say the same about Burnes, who has given up 12 hits, 11 earned runs, six homers and four walks in 10 innings. Those aren't the type of numbers I want to see when going up against a Dodgers lineup that can put up a crooked inning at any point. I have to side with the Dodgers and the somewhat reasonable price.
