MLB Thursday Betting Odds LA Dodgers vs Milwaukee Brewers Free Pick

Thursday baseball and we will see the Los Angeles Dodgers travel to Miller Park to take on the Milwaukee BrewersFree Pick to follow. First pitch is scheduled for a 1:40 PM (Eastern) start time and the game will be televised on the MLB Network.

Betting Odds

Dodgers            -105
Brewers             -105

Over/ Under: 8 0 -125

This is game 4 of a 4 game series between these teams. The Brewers have taken 2 of the first 3 games in the series and this comes on the heels of them firing their coach at the end of the Chicago series. The Brewers have now won 4 of their last 5 games overall, but are still just 9-19 on the year and in last place in the NL Central. The Dodgers come in atop the NL West with a 17-10 record overall, but they are just 4-8 on the road this year.  

Los Angeles ranks 6th in scoring (4.78 rpg), 10th in hitting (.259) and 1st in homers (44), while on the mound they are 4th in ERA (3.18) and 4th in WHIP (1.12). The Dodgers have gone 19-7 in their last 26 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30, but just 2-9 in their last 11 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400 and 4-10 in their last 15 road games.

The Brewers come in ranked 28th in scoring (3.36 rpg), 30th in hitting (.223) and 22nd in homers (20), while on the mound they are 24th in ERA (4.41) and 22nd in WHIP (1.35). Milwaukee has gone 5-0 in Fiers' last 5 home starts vs. a team with a winning record, but just 8-22 in their last 30 during game 4 of a series and 2-9 in their last 11 vs. the NL West.

Getting the ball today for the Dodgers will be Carlos Frias, who is 2-0 on the year with an 0.00 ERA in 1 starts and 1 appearance out of the pen. Carlos' lone start was vs Arizona and he threw 5.1 innings of shutout ball in a game that the Dodgers won 8-0. In his carer Carlos has made just 3 starts and he is 1-1 with a 6.00 ERA in those starts. 

Getting the ball for the Brew Crew today will be Mike Fiers, who is 1-3 on the year with a 4.74 ERA in 5 starts this year. Mike has faced the Dodgers 3 times in his career, twice as a starter, and he is 3-0 with a 1.08 ERA in those games. At Miller Park, Mike has gone 10-12 with a 3.64 ERA in 30 games (22 starts) in his career.

Pick: Im going to go with the Dodgers to get the split in this series as the would just be embarrassed to lose 3 of 4 vs the lowly Brewers. The Dodgers have the better offense and while Fiers does have good numbers vs them, he has struggled this year so far and he also has a losing record in his career at Miller Park. Frias has yet to allow an ER this year and will be taking on a very weak Milwaukee offense. Tyhe start time is not good for LA, but still I see them gaining the split with a nice win today.
