It’s early in Friday night’s game as I’m writing this but both starting pitchers look good enough that our over looks like a long shot. Alex Wood has three shutout innings under his belt and Jake Arrieta has a pitch count in the 20s after two scoreless frames.
John Lackey’s ERA has been in the 4’s for almost the entire season. He makes his 10th start on Saturday afternoon, coming off of five earned in five innings against the Giants earlier this week.
There really aren’t any secrets with John Lackey, nor his opponent Brandon McCarthy, he goes five innings on bad days, seven on good ones and almost always gives up two, three or four runs.
Los Angeles Dodgers
As far as how many innings he’ll go, Brandon McCarthy is just about the carbon copy of Lackey. He’s almost always going to get through five and will very rarely go more than seven.
He’s been a bit better in the runs allowed statistic. McCarthy has given up two runs or less in five of his seven starts this season, though he gave up 10 in the other two starts combined.
The consistency and predictability of both starting pitchers makes this one really tough to find much in the way of value.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction: back and forth game that finishes over.
The default expectation is 3-3 after six but in a game that could go back and forth with both teams scoring, I like it to go over eight. Four runs per side will do it.
