The Chicago Cubs have started July on a nice 4-2 run. The impressive part about this current run is that they have faced the Boston Red Sox and Milwaukee Brewers, two playoff front runners. Now they head out West to face not just a playoff contender, but most likely World Series hopefuls.

Los Angeles is trying to expand its lead in the National League West on a nightly basis, especially with San Diego closely in the hunt. The Dodgers currently lead the division by 5.5 games, but the Padres have done this without their best offensive weapon in Fernando Tatis.

The Chicago Cubs head to Los Angeles with just 34 wins on the season, and the Dodgers will be chomping at the bit to try and keep the pressure on the Padres to keep up. The Dodgers just welcomed the Rockies to town and handed them 3 straight losses. The Dodgers are also 54-18 in their last 72 home games.

Over at SI Sportsbook, the Dodgers are listed as -275, while the comeback on the Cubs is +225 for Thursday night's contest. The level the Cubs have been playing as of late might garner some more action at that big price. A $100 wager on the Cubbies would yield a $225 return. The Dodgers might be too pricey on the money line, but SI Sportsbook is offering the Dodgers at -1.5 with a -133 price. 

A $100 wager on the Dodgers money line of -275 would only bring back $36.36. Buying back the juice by taking a run line wager on the Dodgers would net $75.19. SI Sportsbook would be a great place to place your first wager, and after you sign up using the VIBONUS code, you could earn $100 in free bets.

The pitching matchup will feature a promising Cy Young candidate in Tony Gonsolin. He is catastrophically undervalued in the Cy Young future market at 10-1 odds. He is 10-0, carrying a 1.54 season ERA, and has not allowed more than two earned in any of his starts. The Dodgers have won often when Gonsolin starts, posting a 12-3 record in those games this season.

The Cubs will counter with a bullpen game, as Mark Leiter Jr. starts for just the fourth time this year out of his 11 appearances. He has only pitched more than three innings in four of his 11 games. He comes into this Thursday night tilt with a 4.85 ERA through 29.2 innings. He has allowed 16 earned runs and has had trouble with command, handing out 13 free passes.

SI Sportsbook: Bet $5, Win $100

Another great betting option would be the total on this game. SI Sportsbook currently has the total set to 8.5. While the Cubs are 5-5 in their last 10 games on the total, the Dodgers have only seen the total go over twice in their last 10. In fact, the last six times these two have met in L.A, the under is 5-0-1.
