Los Angeles Dodgers
Sitting atop the NL West, the Los Angeles Dodgers have had a strong start to the 2019 season. On Tuesday night, they’ll send out starter Kenta Maeda to take on pitching duties. The right-hander has pitched extremely well thus far. He’s 3-1 with a 3.80 ERA in four starts.
Over 23.2 innings, Maeda has given up 10 earned runs, but recorded 20 strikeouts and has a WHIP of 1.268. Against a surging Cubs team at home, Maeda’s who you want on the mound if your betting on the Dodgers.
Overall, the Dodgers have been extremely strong. LA has won seven of its last eight games, including a sweep of Cincinnati and, most recently, winning three of four against Milwaukee. LA has been great offensively, averaging 5.66 runs per game and tallying 44 homers in 24 games.
Winners of five of their last six games, the Chicago Cubs have found a groove recently and are looking more like the team that’s been such a threat over the last couple of years. On Tuesday, they’ll send Jose Quintana out for starting pitcher duties.
The lefty has started strong this year, going 2-1 with a 3.43 ERA over three starts. In his 21.0 innings of work, he’s struck out 29 batters and given up just eight earned runs. Outside of Cole Hamels, Quintana has been the team’s strongest pitcher by far.
Offensively, most teams don’t match up with the Dodgers this year. However, the Cubs come pretty close. Chicago has recorded 110 runs over 20 games, an average of 5.5 per game, and has looked impressive for the most part. Shortstop Javier Baez has been brilliant at the plate, tallying six homers and 17 RBIs. He has a .302 batting average in 86 at-bats.

Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
With Maeda on the mound and the Dodgers having such an amazing hitting season so far, I really like LA to grab the win on the road here. Even with Quintana pitching for Chicago, LAD is just the better side in this series. It won’t be a blowout, but the Dodgers get the win on Tuesday.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Dodgers ML
If the moneyline stays like this, put some money on the Dodgers to win. Maeda should keep the Cubs batting order at bay and, the way LA hits, the team should definitely provide him some run support.
