For starters, this is shaping up to be quite the series. Most pundits had the Dodgers as easy winners but we are four games in and it looks like anything but.
Yesterday’s loss was a hard one to swallow. Obviously it was close, requiring extra innings but now Milwaukee is in a tough spot with their bullpen availability as they try and get back on top in the series.
The Brewers can have some confidence in that they did get to Clayton Kershaw in game one of this series and he is known to crack in the playoffs.
As for their own starter, Wade Miley, I am still leery of throwing any of my money in his direction. However, earlier in the series he gave the Brewers 5+ strong innings. It was not on him they lost game two.
The Brewers essentially emptied out the bullpen in the extra inning loss in game five. If Miley is unable to go deep it will be a big problem. The pen has been fantastic but there is pressure on the offense to give them some breathing room.
Los Angeles Dodgers
It is all tied up. It took a few extra inning and it might have had some tense moment but the Dodgers are back in the series. There is still pressure on L.A. as they are the favorite and have just one of a possible three remaining games at home. This one.
It was nice to see Cody Bellinger do something productive for the Dodgers. He is a big bat they need more from and perhaps his walk-off single boosts him up for the rest of the series.
Numbers are numbers and you can’t debate that Clayton Kershaw is just not as effective during the playoffs as he is during the regular season. Still it is a pretty nice option to be able to put him out there in a situation like this where pitching deep into the game could be the difference maker.
Best case scenario is 8 innings of near perfect pitching. We know CK can do it but rising to the occasion is going has been a challenge. Like Milwaukee the L.A. pen is anyone’s guess right now but this is not an elimination game and there is an off day coming so we could see them manage it differently than expected.

Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
There is no line as this is being written the morning of the game which I find a little surprising because we know the mound matchup. When it does come out though there is no way the Dodgers are not favourites. I would think at least -150 too.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Milwaukee ML
The value is all on the Milwaukee side in this one. Yes you are going to be a better payoff but at the same time I think the Dodger are more up against it and they are showing that might not be the best way to get the most out of them. Kershaw is the ultimate wild card but fading him has been profitable too.
