The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago Cubs will meet on Friday for game one of their series from Los Angeles. All odds for this game are updated at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Dodgers added a lot of good players at the trade deadline, but thus far it has not yielded many good results. They currently set a half game behind the Giants in the NL West and will be looking to make up ground this weekend. Chad Billingsley will take the mound tonight for the Dodgers as he has won his last two starts. He is pitching to a 3.89 ERA in 118 innings of work this season.
The Cubs were very active at the trade deadline as a seller. They are just 5-5 in their last 10 games and sit 20 games back in the division. They will look to Jeff Samardzjia to get this weekend’s series off to a good start. Samardzjia has been stellar his last two outings allowing just four hits total. For the season in 120 innings of work he is pitching to a 4.19 ERA.
The Dodgers are 12-4 in their last 16 games following an off day, 3-8 in their last 11 against the NL Central, and 2-5 in Billingsley’s last seven starts. Chicago is 10-4 in their last 14 game one of a series, 15-36 in their last 51 road games, and 2-5 in Samardzjia’s last seven road starts. Chicago is 4-1 in the last five meetings of these two.
We really like the over for total runs scored in this game and do not understand why the line in so low but first check sports odds.
