Los Angeles is 64-24 in their last 88 games and 52-20 in their last 72 Sunday games. The over is 15-5-2 in Los Angeles’ last 22 Sunday games. Chicago is 16-36 in their last 52 home games and 10-21 in their last 31 game 3’s of a series. The under is 5-1 in Chicago’s last 6 Sunday games. Los Angeles is 4-0 in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings.

The Dodgers took care of business on Saturday with two easy wins over the Cubs and will be looking for the series sweep on Sunday night. LA has their ace on the mound with Buehler, while Chicago will answer with Stroman. Stroman had a rocky start to the season, but has had back-to-back quality starts. The Dodgers are the better team in this matchup and I like them to win by at least two.
