Machado set to debut for Dodgers

The Dodgers made the biggest splash during All-Star week as they traded five prospects to the Orioles for star shortstop Manny Machado. The addition of Machado gives LA another infielder who can play multiple positions, while his bat is among the best in the game. Enjoying the best season of his career to date, Machado batted .315 with 24 home runs and 65 RBIs despite playing for a dreadful team in Baltimore. Putting him in the LA lineup makes the Dodgers the favorite to come out of the National League in the postseason.

Brewers struggle heading into break

Milwaukee only went 2-8 in its last 10 games before the All-Star Break, dropping three games behind the Cubs in the NL Central standings. The Brewers have lost six in a row, one at Miami and the ensuing five at the Pirates in a series that included a makeup game in a doubleheader. Milwaukee will look to turn it around as it returns home, where the Brewers are 30-18 this season compared to 25-25 on the road.

Rich Hill (2-4, 4.55 ERA) gets the start today for LA, while Wade Miley (1-1, 2.38) takes the mound for Milwaukee.

MLB Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Dodgers are 6-2 in their last eight Friday games. Los Angeles is 7-1 in its last eight games following an off day.

Milwaukee

The Brewers are 4-0 in their last four games following an off day. Milwaukee is 0-4 in its last four games versus a pitcher with a WHIP greater than 1.30.

Prediction:

Los Angeles played solid ball before the All-Star break and now added another All-Star to solidify its standing even more. The Dodgers should get to Miley, who isn't nearly as good as his numbers suggest in a small sample size. Hill is still trying to find his way, but signs are there that he is turning a corner. Take the Dodgers here as Milwaukee is struggling too much to trust.
