MLB Betting Odds
The Dodgers are 20-9 in their last 29 games. The under is 6-1-1 in Buehler's last eight starts on grass.
The under is 7-2-1 in the last 10 Brewers games overall. The under is 6-2-1 in the last nine Milwaukee playoff games.
How can you not like Milwaukee here? First, Chacin has stepped it up in big games this season and will only be looked to get through five innings here and possibly six if he is pitching great. The Brewers are at home, where they have been excelling. And they did not even use super reliever Josh Hader in Game 6, which leaves him available for two or three innings in Game 7. Buehler has had a fantastic rookie year, but he did give up four earned runs earlier this series at Dodger Stadium and could be shaky in a hitter's environment for Game 7. The Dodgers have all the pressure on them as the favorites to get out of the National League. Milwaukee seems like the smart play here.
