Brewers vs. Dodgers Odds
|Time||10:10 p.m. ET|
The Brewers and Dodgers face off in a matchup of two teams heading into the postseason as strong contenders for the World Series title.
Milwaukee comes into Friday having already won the NL Central, but is trending downward toward the end of the season, having lost six of its past 10 games.
But anything can happen in October, so Milwaukee will look to simply avoid major injuries and build momentum as the regular season comes to a close.
The Dodgers, however, are still embattled in a lively division race, trying to overtake the San Francisco Giants for the top spot in the NL West. L.A. sits a mere two games back entering Friday night.
Clayton Kershaw will take the mound for the Dodgers on Friday, while the Brewers will have Eric Lauer pitching to start.
Lauer is 7-5 with an impressive 2.93 ERA on the season. Kershaw is 10-8 with a 3.38 ERA.
Both Lauer and Kershaw have won two of their last three starts coming into this matchup.
Despite the fact that both teams have offenses that rank in the top-10 in runs, our latest MLB PRO Report sees some serious value in backing the under on Friday’s total in Los Angeles.
