Preview

The Milwaukee Brewers and the Los Angeles Dodgers will play the 3rd game series at the Dodger Stadium on Sunday. The Dodgers blanked the Brewers 7-0 in the second game of the series. Dustin May dominated for five innings in his return from Tommy John surgery, Will Smith and Justin Turner hit three-run homers.

Milwaukee Brewers

The Brewers get here with a 62-54 record and have lost 4 of their last 6 games. They're averaging 4.53 runs while allowing 4.1 runs per game. They're batting for .238 AVG, 516 runs scored in 907 hits and 155 home runs, ranking #10 in offense in the league behind the Colorado Rockies. Rowdy Tellez leads the team with 24 home runs and 72 RBI while Andrew McCutchen is batting for a .253 AVG.

Defensively they are allowing 4.25 runs per game and ranking #15 in the league. Corbin Burnes leads the pitching staff with a 2.39 ERA, 181 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded with the Brewers.

Probable Pitcher:

Eric Lauer (11-5, 1.92 ERA) will be on the mound for the Brewers in the 3rd game of the series. Lauer yielded four hits and two walks over seven scoreless frames Monday, striking out seven and earning a win over the Padres. He has a 0-2 record with an ERA of 14.81 and 12 strikeouts in 3 appearances against the Dodgers in his career.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers get here with a 83-36 record and have won 7 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 5.30 runs per game and they're batting for .261 AVG, 614 runs scored in 1012 hits and 152 home runs, ranking #1 in offense in the league. Mookie Bets leads the team batting for .266 AVG. and 26 home runs. Trea Turner has 83 RBI. 

Defensively they are allowing 3.18 runs per game and rank #1 in the league. Tony Gonsolin leads the team with a 2.24 ERA, 105 strikeouts and 14 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:  Julio Urias (1-0, 4.26 ERA)

Pepiot will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Dodgers. The 24-year-old took a no-decision Tuesday in Milwaukee after giving up three runs over 4.2 innings and appeared headed for the bullpen with Dustin May (elbow) returning from the injured list this weekend. However, Pepiot will stick in the rotation for at least one more turn and perhaps more as Roberts contemplates a six-man rotation.

BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Milwaukee's last 8 games on the road.

Milwaukee are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games when playing on the road against LA Dodgers.

Milwaukee are 5-15 SU in their last 20 games against an opponent in the National League.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of LA Dodgers' last 7 games.

LA Dodgers are 16-3 SU in their last 19 games.

LA Dodgers are 8-0 SU in their last 8 games at home.

Prediction

The Dodgers continue to be the most dominant team and have just recovered Dustin May who had an outstanding performance in his debut vs Brewers. To this game they'll send Julio Urias to the mound who has insane this season and has dominated the Brewers in his career. The Brewers will send Eric Lauer who's having a great season but has struggled vs Dodgers in his career. This will be a great pitching matchup so I expect a low scoring game, take the under.

PICK: Under 7.5 (-110)
