The Los Angeles Dodgers try and avoid the sweep tonight vs. the Milwaukee Brewers tonight in L.A. All odds for all games can be found at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Los Angeles Dodgers will try and salvage one game of this series tonight as their once comfortable lead in the NL West is now dwindling. On Wednesday the Dodgers amassed just 3 runs on 10 hits and Matt Kemp left the game early with an injury once again. The Dodgers will turn to Chad Billingsley tonight to try and at least get one game of the series. He has hit a dry spell as he has not earned a win in his last 8 decisions. Overall he has a 3.88 ERA for the season.
The Brewers have found a little life winning these 3 in L.A. and look to creep even closer in the standings tonight as they sit 6 back in the NL Central. On Wednesday the offense cranked out 14 hits and scored 6 runs and Yovani Gallardo was solid enough to earn the win. Zack Greinke who is coming off of his worst outing of the season will get the nod for the Brewers. Greinke has been average this season and would love to hand the Dodgers the 4 game sweep.
Los Angeles is 6-1 in their last seven games as an underdog, 16-7 in their last 23 games following a loss, and 6-1 in Billingsley’s last seven home starts. Milwaukee is 5-2 in their last seven games overall, 2-6 in their last eight games as a favorite, and 20-6 in Greinke’s last 26 starts. Milwaukee is 5-1 in the last six meetings of these two.
We like the over in this game as we expect the Brewers to hit Billingsley and for the Dodgers to put an emphasis on not getting swept with sportsbook betting.
