The Los Angeles Dodgers face off against the Milwaukee Brewers for the rubber match. The Dodgers won last night by nine runs after dropping the first game by way of a 4-0 shutout. The Brewers arguably need this more as they are in the thick of a playoff race. They currently sit 1.5 games out of contention behind another National League West foe in the San Diego Padres. Last night was a blown opportunity for the Brewers considering the Padres were also not victorious in a bout against the Guardians.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are firmly in first place by 18.5 games and have the best record in baseball by six games. They still want to keep playing good baseball heading into the end of the season to get hot for the playoffs. The Dodgers won a World Series in a COVID shortened season, so another World Series title might validate them a little more.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will utilize Andrew Heaney who will be making just his eighth start this season. He has a 1.77 season ERA and just a 1-1 record. His first five starts he allowed just a combined two earned runs but has since shown a little regression. He has allowed five earned runs in his last two starts totaling just eight innings. He does have 52 strikeouts in just 35.2 innings played.

He will be opposed by Adrian Houser who heads into this matchup with a 4-8 record. He has a 4.72 season ERA spanning 76.1 innings. His road ERA is a little concerning sitting at 5.89. The Brewers have also lost eight of the last 10 games started by Houser. He has allowed three or more in five of his last six starts, which is something the Dodgers are licking their chops about.

The FanDuel Sportsbook has the Dodgers as sizeable favorites laying -260 on the money line. The Brewers are +215 on the comeback line. For the confident Dodgers backer, a run line bet may be worth a look. The Dodgers are the second-best team on the spread behind the Orioles this season. Historically they may be the best team when they are listed at -1.5. The Dodgers at -1.5 are listed at -126. The Brewers at +1.5 are +105.

The total is set to 8.5 with both the over and under listed at -110. A $100 wager on either side of the total would net a $90.91 return. The Brewers have seen the total hit at a 4-1-1 mark it their last six games overall. When these teams have matched up, the over is 8-3 in the last 11. When playing in Los Angeles the over has hit four of the last five between these matchups.
