Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Milwaukee Brewers Betting Analysis

The Brewers host the Dodgers at American Family Field for Game third of a four-game series on Wednesday, August 17, 2022.

Los Angeles leads the National League West at 80-35, putting together a 40-20 record when playing away from Dodger Stadium. Milwaukee is in second place in the National League Central with a record of 62-53 overall and 30-23 at home, which trails St. Louis by two games for the division lead.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Milwaukee Brewers Betting Prediction

The Dodgers send RHP Tony Gonsolin to the hill against Milwaukee’s tenth-ranked scoring offense on Wednesday night (4.53 RSPG), who’s having a Cy Young caliber campaign for Los Angeles, considering he’s 14-1 with a 2.24 ERA in 21 starts this season (0.89 WHIP), despite posting a lackluster 4.40 ERA across five starts in the month of July (1.101 WHIP).

On the other hand, the Brewers send LHP Eric Lauer to the mound against L. A.’s top-ranked scoring offense tonight (5.37 RSPG), who’s also having an excellent campaign sitting 8-4 with a 3.64 ERA across 21 starts this season (1.21 WHIP), despite posting a miserable 1-2 record and 6.83 ERA in the month of June (1.48 WHIP).

I’ll take the under here, as Gonsolin has tossed five innings or more and allowed two runs or less in nine of his last 12 outings for the Dodgers (2.52 ERA, 0.86 WHIP); setting the stage for a relatively low-scoring battle against the Brewers and Lauer, who’s 2-1 with a 2.90 ERA in his last seven outings (1.19 WHIP), and 6-0 with a 2.56 ERA across nine career starts against the Dodgers (1.10 WHIP).

Score Prediction: Dodgers 4, Brewers 2
Best Bet: Under 8 (-105)
