Preview

The Milwaukee Brewers and the Los Angeles Dodgers will play the 3rd game series at the Dodger Stadium on Wednesday. The Dodgers outscored the Brewers 10-1 in the second game of the series.  Tony Gonsolin combined with four pitchers on a four-hitter in his 16th win, tying the major league lead. Trayce Thompson blasted a three-run homer in the second and drove in another run as part of a 2-for-3 performance. Freddie Freeman went 3 for 5 with four RBI in helping the Dodgers bounce back after being shut out at home.

Milwaukee Brewers

The Brewers get here with a 65-57 record and have lost 3 of their last 5 games. They're averaging 4.50 runs while allowing 4.1 runs per game. They're batting for .233 AVG, 549 runs scored in 951 hits and 159 home runs, ranking #11 in offense in the league behind the San Francisco Giants. Rowdy Tellez leads the team with 26 home runs and 74 RBI while Andrew McCutchen is batting for a .253 AVG.

Defensively they are allowing 4.26 runs per game and ranking #17 in the league. Corbin Burnes leads the pitching staff with a 2.84 ERA, 190 strikeouts and 9 wins recorded with the Brewers.

Probable Pitcher:

Adrian Houser (4-8, 4.72 ERA) will be on the mound for the Brewers in the 3rd game of the series.The 29-year-old joined the Brewers' taxi squad in Los Angeles on Monday, and he'll return to the starting rotation on Wednesday after missing nearly eight weeks due to a right flexor injury. Before the change in plans, Houser was set to throw 60-75 pitches in a minor-league rehab start on Sunday, and he'll likely have a similar workload in his first outing back with Milwaukee.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers get here with a 85-37 record and have won 4 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 5.30 runs per game and they're batting for .261 AVG, 652 runs scored in 1087 hits and 162 home runs, ranking #1 in offense in the league. Mookie Bets leads the team batting for .266 AVG. and 27 home runs. Trea Turner has 85 RBI. 

Defensively they are allowing 3.18 runs per game and rank #1 in the league. Tony Gonsolin leads the team with a 2.10 ERA, 116 strikeouts and 16 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:  Andrew Heaney (1-1, 1.77 ERA)

Heaney will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Dodgers. Heaney suffered the loss on Thursday against the Brewers after giving up five runs (three earned) on five hits and one walk while striking out 10. That's the only time he has pitched against the Brewers in his career so far.

BETTING TRENDS

Milwaukee Brewers are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games against LA Dodgers.

Milwaukee Brewers are 3-9 SU in their last 12 games on the road.

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

The total has gone OVER in 8 of LA Dodgers' last 11 games against Milwaukee.

LA Dodgers are 10-1 SU in their last 11 games at home.

Prediction

The Dodgers continue to be the most dominant team and destroyed the Brewers 10-1 to tie the series. For this game they'll send Andrew Heaney to the mound who has been pretty good this season but was punded by the Brewers in his last start. The Brewers will send Adrian Houser who has struggled this season ad the Brewers have lost in 8 of his last 10 starts. Expect another high scoring game as the Dodgers are on fire and the Brewers know how to hit Heaney. Take the over. 

PICK: Over 8.5 (-110)
