The LA Dodgers vs. Milwaukee Brewers betting line was coming in at LA -110 and Milwaukee +100.  The total was set at 9.5 and at times has moved to 9.


What We Like

  • 8 of the last 10 meetings have gone UNDER the current total of 9.5
  • Julio Urias desperate for a win
  • Under is 22-7-1 in Davies' last 30 starts overall and 7-2 in Davies' last 9 home starts.

What We Don't Like

  • The UNDER is 5-0 in Dodgers last 5 overall

PITCHING MATCHUP: Dodgers LH Julio Urias (0-1, 5.27 ERA) vs. Brewers RH Zach Davies (2-0, 1.53)

Urias, who could be headed to the bullpen, needs a better effort than last Friday against Milwaukee, when he worked five innings and was roughed up for six runs on six innings, including a pair of homers. The 22-year-old Mexican struck out seven in five scoreless innings of three-hit ball in his season debut before lasting only 3 2/3 innings and giving up three runs in a no-decision at Colorado on April 7. Ryan Braun is 3-for-7 against Urias, who is 1-1 in three starts versus the Brewers.

Davies has improved in each of his three starts and went a season-high seven innings against the Dodgers, earning the victory after permitting one run on eight hits while striking out six. He also won his previous turn against the Chicago Cubs after yielding two runs (zero earned) on five hits over 5 2/3 innings, which followed five innings of two-run ball in a no-decision at Cincinnati on April 1. Cody Bellinger is 3-for-6 against Davies, who is 3-1 with a 2.30 ERA versus the Dodgers.
