Quintana was knocked around in his last outing as he was tagged with his sixth loss of the season against the Cincinnati Reds in a 3-6 loss. He went five innings giving up nine hits, four earned runs, and one home run while he struck out three and walked two.
In 15 starts the lefty owns an okay strikeout (8.51 K/9) to walk (4.15 BB/9) rate, while he’s done an okay containing the long ball with a 1.23 HR/9. The end-result has been a 4.26 ERA and a similar 4.37 FIP.
Chicago has struggled in the past week as they could only win two of their seven contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .263/.322/.415 to go with 19 extra-base hits and 27 RBI.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Kershaw was eased back into the rotation after returning from the DL. He went three innings giving up five hits and two earned runs while he struck out four and walked one.
Before hitting the DL, Kershaw posted solid numbers where he owns a 9.87 K/9, 2.08 BB/9, 1.21 HR/9, .304 BABIP, and a solid 85.9% LOB%. The end-result was a solid 2.94 ERA and a slightly high 3.35 FIP meaning that Los Angeles’ defense has been helping him out.
Los Angeles continues to play winning baseball as they’ve won four of their last six contests in the past week. During that span their lineup is slashing .224/.294/.453 to go with 19 extra-base hits and 25 RBI.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction: Los Angeles edges out Chicago
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cubs +1.5
Quintana owns a 3.22 ERA on the road, while Los Angeles lineup doesn’t hit as well against lefties (.725 OPS) and they don’t hit as well at home (.699 OPS). Kershaw has a couple innings under his belt, but he may still not be at 100% yet, while Chicago’s lineup has been hitting well lately. Quintana may give up some runs, but Kershaw will probably give up some as well making me believe that Chicago will keep this outing close.
