The Line: Milwaukee Brewers +125 / Los Angeles Dodgers -155 -- Over/Under: 9
The Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Sunday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for another victory after splitting their last eight games. The Brewers have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Milwaukee Brewers are 9-3 this season when scoring four or more runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 20 hits and 15 RBI while Lorenzo Cain and Yasmani Grandal have combined for 36 hits and 11 RBI. Jhoulys Chacin gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 4.24 ERA and 14 strikeouts this season. Chacin is 11-9 with a 4.41 ERA and 112 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers need to snap a six-game losing streak to get a game above a .500 record. The Dodgers have allowed 23 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 14 of their first 16 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers are 6-8 this season when allowing four or more runs. Offensively, Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 27 hits and 22 RBI while Justin Turner and Enrique Hernandez have combined for 33 hits and 18 RBI. Ross Stripling gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 3.78 ERA and 15 strikeouts this season. Stripling is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and eight strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 15-3 in their last 18 during game 3 of a series, 5-1 in Chacin's last 6 road starts and 7-2 in Chacin's last 9 starts. The Dodgers are 41-16 in their last 57 during game 3 of a series, 23-11 in their last 34 home games and 0-6 in their last 6 overall. The under is 9-3-1 in the last 13 meetings in Los Angeles and 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings. The over is 11-5 in Dodgers last 16 overall. The under is 5-0 in Chacin's last 5 road starts.
Chacin has been a little shaky in his first few games, and current Dodgers are hitting a healthy .306 in 98 at bats against him. Stripling has allowed seven runs and 11 hits in his last 11.1 innings, and he has a bullpen that's hard to trust. The bottom line is we're getting plus money to fade the Dodgers, a team that's lost six straight and has rarely put together a good pitching performance this season. I'm not falling in love with either of these pitchers, but in terms of the value, the Brewers at this price is the play for me simply due to the Dodgers not worthy of being favored in their current form.
