The Line: Los Angeles Dodgers -141 / Milwaukee Brewers +120 -- Over/Under: 8.5
The Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers meet Sunday in MLB action at Miller Park.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after winning six of their last seven games. The Dodgers have scored eight runs in their last three games and three or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won their last six games when scoring at least one run. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 33 hits and 25 RBI while Justin Turner and A.J. Pollock have combined for 40 hits and 22 RBI. Clayton Kershaw gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 2.57 ERA and six strikeouts this season. Kershaw is 6-5 with a 2.86 ERA and 100 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Brewers have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 12 games. The Milwaukee Brewers have won their last five games when scoring four or more runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 30 hits and 31 RBI while Lorenzo Cain and Yasmani Grandal have combined for 46 hits and 14 RBI. Brandon Woodruff gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 5.23 ERA and 26 strikeouts this season. This will be Woodruff’s second career game against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 9-3 in their last 12 Sunday games, 36-16 in Kershaw's last 52 road starts and 74-25 in Kershaw's last 99 starts. The Brewers are 5-1 in their last 6 Sunday games, 15-7 in their last 22 home games and 4-1 in Woodruff's last 5 starts. The Dodgers are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee and the under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The under is 5-2 in Brewers last 7 overall. The over is 5-0 in Kershaw's last 5 road starts.
I know Kershaw is still trying to work his way back into form after missing the start of the season due to injury, but we're getting one of the best pitchers in the world at a price you usually don't see. Kershaw is usually priced much higher than this. Still, Kershaw has won 11 of his last 13 starts as a favorite overall and has won nine of his last 13 road starts as a favorite. I have a rule about taking ace pitchers and cheap prices. It pays off far more than it doesn't. Give me the Los Angeles Dodgers on the road.
