The Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers meet Friday in MLB action at Miller Park.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for another win to build on their five-game winning streak. The Dodgers have scored 12 runs in their last three games and three or more runs in seven of their last eight games. The Los Angeles Dodgers are 13-4 this season when scoring at least three runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 32 hits and 24 RBI while A.J. Pollock and Justin Turner have combined for 39 hits and 22 RBI. Ross Stripling gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 2.92 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. Stripling is 1-0 with a 0.69 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.

The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Brewers have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Milwaukee Brewers are 11-3 this season when scoring four or more runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 27 hits and 27 RBI while Lorenzo Cain and Yasmani Grandal have combined for 44 hits and 14 RBI. Jhoulys Chacin gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 6.52 ERA and 17 strikeouts this season. Chacin is 11-10 with a 4.70 ERA and 115 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

The Dodgers are 4-0 in their last 4 vs. National League Central, 4-0 in their last 4 games on grass and 2-5 in Stripling's last 7 starts. The Brewers are 35-16 in their last 51 Friday games, 33-15 in their last 48 vs. National League West and 7-3 in Chacin's last 10 starts. The under is 6-2-1 in the last 9 meetings. The under is 8-1 in Chacin's last 9 starts overall. The under is 25-12-4 in Stripling's last 41 starts overall.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have found their mojo again during this winning streak, and Stripling just held these Brewers to four hits and one run through eight innings a few days ago. Chacin got rocked in his game against the Dodgers and hasn't been great out the gate, but three of his four starts have come on the road, so I can cut him some slack. The Brewers have won 12 of their last 18 games when Chacin is on the mound as an underdog. The Dodgers have lost four of their last six road games with Stripling on the mound, all of those games coming as a favorite. I see some value with the Brewers as a home dog. 

Pick:
Milwaukee Brewers +105
