MLB Betting Trends
The Dodgers are 20-7 in their last 27 games overall. Los Angeles is 36-16 in its last 52 Friday games.
The Brewers are 25-9 in their last 34 Friday games. Milwaukee is 7-3 in its last 10 home playoff games.
All hands will be on deck for the Brewers as far is this game goes. Expect to see Josh Hader on the mound for multiple innings, plus probably Corey Knebel and Jeremy Jeffress. The Brewers have been fantastic at home and hot overall. Even though Ryu has been fantastic this season, the Brewers have seen him once already this series and should be able to get to him at some point. Getting the lead early and riding Miley plus the bullpen will be the formula for Milwaukee here.
