Sunday major league baseball and we will see the Milwaukee Brewers take on the Los Angeles Dodgers in game 3 of their 3 game series from Chavez Ravine in Los Angeles. Free Pick to follow. First pitch is scheduled for a 4:10 PM (Eastern) start time and the game will be televised locally.
Over/ Under: 7.5 U -125
The Dodgers took game 1 of this series, but last night it was the Brewers that bounced back with a strong 7-1 victory. The Brewers have played better of late as they have now won 10 of their last 13 games, but still they are 13 games under .500 and 18.5 games behind the division leading St Louis in the NL Central. The Dodgers have won 3 of heir last 4 games and still hold a 4.5 game lead over the Giants in the NL West. The Brewers rank 18th in scoring (4.01 rpg), while on the mound they are 24th in ERA (4.20). The Dodgers rank 15th in scoring (4.18 rpg), while on the mound they are 4th in ERA (3.31).
Trends for this game include: The Brewers are 8-2 in their last 10 road games, but 5-18 in their last 23 vs. the National League West, while the Dodgers are 22-6 in their last 28 games as a home favorite of -151 to -200 and 20-8 in their last 28 Sunday games.
Getting the ball for the Brewers today will be Kyle Lohse, who is 5-10 with a 6.29 ERA in 18 starts this year, while on the road he has gone 2-4 with a 4.53 ERA in 8 starts. Kyle is 2-4 with a 4.43 ERA in 13 games (11 starts) vs the Dodgers in his career, while at Chavez Ravine he is 2-2 with a 3.90 ERA in 5 starts.
Taking the hill for the Dodgers today will be Brett Anderson, who is 5-5 with a 3.12 ERA in 17 starts this year, while at home he has gone 2-2 with a 3.31 ERA in 9 starts. Brett has never faced the Brewers in his career.
Pick: I will go with the Dodgers to take the rubber game of this series. Brett Anderson has been a solid starter for this team this year, especially at home, where he has a 3.31 ERA. Kyle Lohse has been horrible for the Brewers this year as he is 5-10 with a 6.29 ERA overall and 2-4 with a 4.53 ERA on the road. This is classic pitching mismatch and Lohse should help the Dodgers get their offense going, while Brett will keep a hot Brewers offense in check. I may also be looking at the Under in this game.

MLB Betting Strategy: Don't Snub All-Star Pitching Snubs
Just because the All-Star Game doesn't want Clayton Kershaw doesn't mean sports bettors shouldn't. Vegas gambling expert Scott Spreitzer explains why your MLB picks should favor snubbed pitchers for this year's All-Star Game in Cincinnati. With added motivation and extended rest from the All-Star break, Scott thinks they are profitable pitchers to back.
