The Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Dodger Stadium. In the first game of this series, it was the Dodgers that were able to secure the 5-2 victory. 

The Cubs sit with a 34-49 record overall and they have lost three of their last five games. The Cubs didn’t actually get terrible pitching in the first game of this series, it was the offense that couldn’t get anything going. The Cubs pitching has been an issue for most of the season giving up 5.13 runs per game which is 25th in the league. The top offensive player for the Cubs was Patrick Wisdom and he has hit 17 home runs and driven in 45 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Dodgers who sit with a 53-29 record overall and they have won four games in a row. In each of the last four games they have given up three runs or less, and it’s going to be important that there is good pitching again in this game. The Dodgers offense and defense are both ranked second in the league. On offense, it has been a balanced attack with the top player being Trea Turner.

On the mound for the Cubs is Keegan Thompson who sits with a 7-3 record and an ERA of 3.41. In Thompson’s last start against the Boston Red Sox, he went four innings giving up seven hits and two runs. 

On the mound for the Dodgers will be Tyler Anderson and he sits with a 9-1 record and an ERA of 3.09. In Anderson’s last start against the San Diego Padres, he went 6.1 innings giving up six hits and one run. 

Tyler Anderson is coming off a start where he gave up one run, and the Cubs offense struggled to score in the first game. Look for the Cubs bats to be ice cold here against Anderson, and the Dodgers will get the job done. Back the Dodgers -1.5 to cash. In terms of the total, I expect this to be a lower-scoring game and the under is going to cash.
