The Cubs were playing great baseball, but hit a wall when they traveled to Los Angeles. They lost the first two games on this series after blowing early leads in both games. Game three was a low scoring pitching duel but a 9th inning rally got the Cubs a win. Now on Sunday Night baseball, the Cubs will look to avoid losing three out of four. They will turn to Jose Quintana to keep the Dodgers offense at bay. Quintana is 4-6 on the year, but has an earned run average of 3.89. He has been worse over his last three starts, going 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA. His key to this game will be keeping the Dodgers off the scoreboard early. The Dodgers have Ryu pitching, so if the offense starts to struggle, it will be up to Quintana to go pitch for pitch with Ryu. I am not sure he can do this so it is vital he is given an early lead.
The Cubs offense has actually been decent against LA in this series. They scored three runs in both game one and two, but it was their pitching that let them down. The Chicago bats have to find a way to get more than three runs if they are going to split this series.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers continue to crush the ball, but were only able to score one run on Saturday night. They will turn to Hyun-Jin Ryu on Sunday to go for the series win. Ryu has been amazing this year, posting a 9-1 with an earned run average of 1.36. Ryu is so good right now that it is safe to say he can hold this Cubs’ offense well below their season average. The only questionable part is the Dodgers’ bullpen. Kenley Jansen blew the save on Saturday, so Ryu needs to go deep into this game to keep the bullpen from having to pitch a ton.
The Dodgers offense is clearly among the best in the league with the amount of power they have in their lineup. Considering Quintana has struggled this year, I think we see a huge game from the Dodgers bats. If they can provide just a handful of run support for Ryu, he will do the rest and the Dodgers will have a Happy Fathers’ Day.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
Ryu is poised to throw another gem and the Dodgers bats will be able to score several on Quintana. Taking the Dodgers on the money line is not really a smart option so I would recommend taking them on the run line for better value.
