The Dodgers get here with a 18-7 record and have won 5 games in a row. The team is averaging .237 at bat scoring 5 runs per game and allowing 2.36 runs. Freddie Freeman is batting for .316 AVG. Mookie Bets leads with 5 home runs and Trea Turner has 20 RBI.

Walker Buehler (3-1, 2.12 ERA) will take the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Dodgers. Buehler registered the win during Sunday's 6-3 victory over Detroit, allowing six hits and one walk with five strikeouts in five scoreless innings. In his last 3 starts against the Cubs he has a 2.36 ERA and 20 strikeouts across 19 innings.
The Cubs get here with a 9-17 record and have lost 7 of their last 8 games. The team is averaging 3.9 runs per game with a .235 at bat while allowing 4.46 runs. Patrick Wisdom is leading the team with 5 home runs and 15 RBI while Nico Hoerner has the better batting average with .289.
Keegan Thompson leads with 2 wins for the Cubs and a 1.17 ERA and 21 strikeouts.
Marcus Stroman (1-3, 5.13 ERA) will be on the mound for the Cubs in the 3rd game of the series. Stroman tossed seven scoreless innings to earn the win Sunday against the Brewers. He allowed two hits and a walk while striking out five. He had 1 start against the Dodgers last season and allowed 2 runs striking out 6 batters across 6 innings.
LA Dodgers are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games.
LA Dodgers are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games against Chi Cubs.
Chi Cubs are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games.
Chi Cubs are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games at home.
The Dodgers are on 5 game winning streak and lead the MLB in offense, with 5 runs per game and defense allowing 2.3 runs. The have dominated the Cubs in the last 5 games but they'll face Marcus Stroman who's coming from a strong start in his last game and beat the Dodgers last season. With the Cubs struggling offensively and 2 great pitchers I think the best play is the under.
PICK: Under 7.5 (-110)
