Brewers Try to Climb Back Into Wild Card Spot Against League’s Best
Our Brewers vs Dodgers series odds preview starts by reminding readers that even though Milwaukee had a tough time against the Chicago Cubs this weekend they did play well against the Dodgers last week when they split a 4-game series.
They will need to do something in this series that they haven’t been able to do of late, and that’s win on the road where they’ve lost 8 of their last 10. Milwaukee is still trying to overcome the loss of the best closer in baseball when they traded player Josh Hader to San Diego.
Milwaukee needs to find consistent power in their line-up against the best pitching staff in baseball. Eric Lauer, who gets the start for Milwaukee, is having the best year of his career but has lost his last two starts against St. Louis and Los Angeles.
Dodgers Continue to Run Away With the National League West
From the start of the season, in the MLB injury update, the Dodgers’ injuries have continued to pile up, but that hasn’t affected their World Series betting odds as they continue to be a +275 favorite. Dave Robert’s team is 44-11 in their last 55 games as they lead the San Diego Padres by 18 games.
At Dodger Stadium, the ‘Blue Shirts’ have won 62 of their last 79 games, giving them a huge advantage if they maintain the best record in baseball. The Dodgers are trying to overcome another blow to their roster after the announcement that Walker Buehler is out for the year.
Dustin may be back in the rotation but tread lightly with Clayton Kershaw, Blake Treinen, and Brusdar Graterol still on the shelf. The Dodgers are clearly the better team in this one, but perhaps you should go in another direction because you don’t build bankroll laying -270 or chasing +220 dogs.
Julio Urias takes the ball for the second start in a row against Milwaukee shutting them down for five innings a week ago. Let’s take a look at how to properly bet on tonight’s Brewers, and Dodgers matchup.
Betting Public is All Over Dodgers Run-Line; Under
To conclude our Brewers vs Dodgers series odds preview it’s important to emphasize that the side is not the best option for your bankroll. The Los Angeles Dodgers betting odds we’re going to take advantage of is Milwaukee +1.5 (even).
Part of being successful at wagering is to smell out when a run of .500 games may be coming. After splitting last week, we know Milwaukee should be competitive with a line-up that ranks third in baseball with 167 homers.
They are one of 11 teams with a winning road and are 13-12 against teams over .500 on the road. It’s hard to go against the Dodgers’ current 9-game home winning streak and 16-3 August, but let’s grab some insurance with the Brewers while giving up very little off our bankroll.
