The Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Wednesday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium. 

The Milwaukee Brewers look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. The Brewers have scored 11 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Milwaukee Brewers have won seven of their last nine games when scoring at least one run. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 118 hits and 57 RBI while Lorenzo Cain and Travis Shaw have combined for 189 hits and 91 RBI. Chase Anderson gets the ball, and he is 7-7 with a 3.69 ERA and 90 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 1-4 with a 5.36 ERA and 50 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last 10 games. The Dodgers have allowed 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last nine games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost four straight games when allowing more than two runs. Offensively, Chris Taylor leads the Dodgers with 101 hits and 50 RBI while Matt Kemp and Cody Bellinger have combined for 191 hits and 108 RBI. Rich Hill gets the ball, and he is 4-4 with a 3.82 ERA and 77 strikeouts this season. Hill is 3-1 with a 3.60 ERA and 52 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.

The Brewers are 1-5 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series, 8-3 in Andersons last 11 Wednesday starts and 4-0 in Andersons last 4 starts vs. National League West. The Dodgers are 25-10 in their last 35 during game 3 of a series, 6-1 in Hills last 7 starts during game 3 of a series and 1-4 in Hills last 5 home starts. The under is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.

We're once again getting big plus money with the Milwaukee Brewers, which is too hard to pass up. The Brewers are not only playing better baseball right now than the Dodgers, but Anderson has been on fire recently, allowing two or less runs in each of his last seven starts. Anderson also has a 2.54 ERA with an allowed batting average of .213 on the road this season. Hill has allowed just one run in his last 13 innings, but he's had his struggles as well, especially at home where he has an ERA of 4.59 with an allowed batting average of .269. Like last night, the value is with the Brewers and the plus money.
