The Milwaukee Brewers and the Los Angeles Dodgers will play the 2nd game series at the American Family Field on Tuesday. The Dodgers took the win 4-0 in the first game of the series.  Julio Urias pitched 5 strong innings and the Dodgers bullpen blanked the Brewers.

Milwaukee Brewers

The Brewers get here with a 61-53 record and have lost 3 of their last 4 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:

Brandon Woodruff (9-3, 3.52 ERA) will be on the mound for the Brewers in the 2nd game of the series. Woodruff didn't factor into the decision Wednesday, giving up three runs on four hits over seven innings in a 4-3 extra-inning win over the Rays. He struck out five without walking a batter. He has an ERA of 6.59 and 16 strikeouts in 3 appearances versus the Dodgers in his career.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers get here with a 80-34 record and have won 9 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 5.39 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:  Ryan Pepiot (1-0, 3.92 ERA)

Pepiot will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Dodgers. Pepiot will again fill the spot in the rotation that belonged to Clayton Kershaw (back), after the rookie previously covered 4.1 innings and surrendered four earned runs on five hits and three walks in last Wednesday's game against the Twins.


LA Dodgers are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games against Milwaukee.

LA Dodgers are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 7 of LA Dodgers' last 10 games when playing on the road against Milwaukee.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Milwaukee's last 6 games against LA Dodgers.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Milwaukee's last 6 games at home.


The Dodgers returned to the winning train after beating the Brewers in the first game of the series but they'll now face Brandon Woodruff who has been solid lately and the Brewers have lost only 1 game at home with him on the mound. Ryan Pepiot will take the mound for the Dodgers who struggled in his last start vs Twins allowing 4 runs in 4 innings pitched but still the Dodgers won the game. It's hard to go against the Dodgers right now but Woodruff is capable of slow down their offense and with the Brewers struggling offensively I think the best play is the under.

PICK: Under 8 (-110)
