Rogers' MAJOR Underdog Surprise >> OFF 3-0 SWEEP WEDNESDAY!
Milwaukee vs. LA Dodgers,
08/02/2018 21:10 EDT,
Score: 5 - 21
Money Line: +185 Milwaukee
The set-up: This series features a couple of interesting match-ups and this is definitely one of them in my opinion. Clayton Kershaw has looked human this year and I think that leaves the door open for the steady Jhoulys Chacin and the hungry Brewers to steal this one on Thursday night.
The pitchers: Chacin is so far 10-3 with a 3.45 ERA. He most recently gave up one run off three hits and a walk while striking out six over seven innings in a victory over San Francisco on Saturday. Over 127.2 innings Chacin sports a sharp 1.19 WHIP and note that he’s 6-1 with a 3.45 ERA on the road this season.
Kershaw is so far 4-5 with a 2.52 ERA. He most recently gave up one run off six hits over 7.2 innings in a win over Atlanta on Friday. It’s hard to say anything negative about Kershaw, who has been solid of late, I simply feel that Chacin, who comes in on top form, is going to be able to match him inning for inning on Thursday.
The pick: The Brewers are under-rated here in my opinion, they come in 63-47 overall, including 30-26 on the road. LA is 59-49 overall, but a pedestrian 28-26 at home. Value swings to the underdog in this one, play on Milwaukee.
