Preview

The Pittsburgh Pirates and the Los Angeles Dodgers will play the 3rd game of the series at the Dodger Stadium on Wednesday night. The Pirates beat the Dodgers again in the second of the series and they're now 4-1 against them this season.

Pittsburgh Pirates

The Pirates get to this game with a 21-27 record and have won 4 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 3.37 runs and allowing 5.2 runs per game. Ke'Bryan Hayes is batting for .289 AVG. Bryan Reynolds leads in home runs with 7 so far and Gamel has 11 RBI

Jose Quintana leads the pitching staff with a 2.15 ERA, 38 strikeouts and 1 win recorded for the Pirates.

Probable Pitcher: 

Jose Quintana (1-2, 2.15 ERA) will take the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Pirates. Quintana allowed two runs (none earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out four across 5.1 innings Friday against San Diego. He did not factor into the decision.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers get here with a 33-16 record and have won 4 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging .253 at bat scoring 5.57 runs per game while allowing 3 runs. Freddie Freeman is batting for .306 AVG. Mookie Bets leads with 15 home runs and Trea Turner has 39 RBI. 

Julio Urias leads the team with a 2.89 ERA, 42 strikeouts and 3 wins recorded for the Dodgers.

Probable Pitcher

Mitch White (0-0, 4.60 ERA) will take the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Dodgers. White didn't factor into the decision during Thursday's 14-1 victory over Arizona, allowing two hits and two walks with two strikeouts in four scoreless innings.

BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Pittsburgh's last 7 games on the road.

Pittsburgh are 2-12 SU in their last 14 games when playing on the road against LA Dodgers.

LA Dodgers are 13-4 SU in their last 17 games.

The total has gone OVER in 9 of LA Dodgers' last 11 games at home.

Prediction

The Dodgers have struggled against the Pirates this season and they're 1-4 against them in the season. They'll send Mitch Withe to the mound who will make his 3rd start with the team. Quintana dominated the Dodgers earlier this season and held them to zero runs across 6 innings. However I refuse to think the the Pirates will sweep the Dodgers so I'll take LA with the run line. 

PICK: Dodgers -1.5 (-130)
