A pair of National League teams that will be playing in the postseason will wrap up the final series of the regular season in the City of Angels. The Milwaukee Brewers are on the road as they open a three-game series with the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday night.
With nothing to play for down the stretch, having locked in the NL Central crown, Milwaukee fell for the 7th time in 11 games as they lost the rubber game of their road set with the Cardinals Thursday. The Brewers have clinched the NL Central and will be in the postseason field next week.
The Brewers will have home-field advantage in the NL Division Series against whichever team wins the NL East.
Avisail Garcia has been a solid piece for the Brewers and has a team high 29 homers and 85 RBI’s.
Eric Lauer is on the mound for his 24th appearance and 20th start of the season for the Brewers in this contest. He comes in 7-5 with a 2.93 ERA, a 1.117 WHIP, 39 walks and 114 strikeouts over 113.2 innings of work this season.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Los Angeles won their third straight game as they won a wild contest with the Padres at home Wednesday night. The Dodgers entered Thursday two games behind the Giants in the NL West race but were unable to gain ground as San Francisco swept Arizona in close fashion as well.
The Dodgers have locked up a playoff spot, but they need a strong finish in order to take the division crown. They are currently being given around a 5% chance of winning the NL West and therefore home-field advantage in the postseason.
Los Angeles swept Milwaukee at home earlier this month, recording two shutouts along the way. Its offense ranks No. 14 in the MLB with a team batting average of .242.
Third baseman Justin Turner leads the way with 142 hits and a .275 average. Left fielder Chris Taylor has 127 hits, while right fielder Mookie Betts has 119 hits. First baseman Max Muncy has hit a team-high 35 home runs.
Clayton Kershaw is on the mound for his 22nd start of the season for the Dodgers here. He comes in 10-8 with a 3.38 ERA, a 0.992 WHIP, 21 walks and 143 strikeouts over 120 innings of work on the year.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Brewers are 95-64 overall

Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
Milwaukee has struggled down the stretch, mainly due to a lack of motivation as they have nothing to play for. Losing Devin Williams for the postseason is a blow to the Brewers’ bullpen as he was the primary setup man for Josh Hader and will force Craig Counsell to juggle his relief corps.
In this one, the same lack of motivation is going to prove problematic for the Brewers. The Dodgers are still trying to catch the Giants, who entered Thursday with a magic number of three to clinch the NL West crown.
I’m taking the Dodgers to win and keep pressure on the Giants.
