Milwaukee Brewers vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Analysis

The Dodgers host the Brewers in the first contest of a three-game set at Dodger Stadium on Monday, August 22nd.

The Brewers are 64-56 overall and 33-32 on the road, which positions Milwaukee second in the National League Central standings and trails the division leading St. Louis Cardinals by five games. The Dodgers currently lead the National League West with a record of 84-36 overall and 43-15 at home.

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Prediction

The Dodgers send LHP Julio Urias to the mound against Milwaukee’s ninth-ranked scoring offense on Monday night (4.53 RSPG), who’s arguably having the best campaign of his magnificent seven-year career sitting 13-6 with a 2.40 ERA across 23 starts this season (0.98 WHIP), which already includes an excellent outing against the Brewers (5 IP, 0 ER).

On the flip side, the Brewers send LHP Eric Lauer to the hill against L. A.’s top-ranked scoring offense tonight (5.35 RSPG), who’s also having a solid campaign sitting 8-5 with a 3.58 ERA across 22 starts this season (1.20 WHIP), which already includes a serviceable outing against the Dodgers (7 IP, 2 ER).

I’ll take the under here, as Lauer is 2-2 with a 2.85 ERA in his last eight appearances for the Brewers (1.16 WHIP), and 6-1 with a 2.56 ERA across 10 career starts against L. A. (1.09 WHIP); setting the stage for a relatively low-scoring battle against the Dodgers and Urias, who’s 6-0 with a 0.95 ERA in his last six outings (0.82 WHIP), and 5-1 with a 2.01 ERA across seven career starts against Milwaukee (0.92 WHIP).

Score Prediction: Dodgers 3, Brewers 2
Best Bet: Under 7.5 (+100)
