The Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers face off on Saturday in an MLB showdown at Dodger Stadium.
The Cubs headed into Friday’s game with a 34-49 record overall and the offense has been an issue as of late for this team. The Cubs offense hasn’t been great, but even worse has been the pitching. The Cubs are giving up 5.13 runs per game which is 25th in the league. Patrick Wisdom has been the top offensive player for the team hitting 17 home runs and driving in 45 RBIs.
On the other side of this matchup is the Dodgers who were able to win the first game of this series on Thursday night, but the bullpen made it interesting late. The Dodgers are averaging 5.0 runs per game while they are giving up 3.22 runs per game which is both second across the MLB. Trea Turner has been the top offensive player hitting 11 home runs and driving in 59 RBIs so far this season.
The Cubs send Marcus Stroman to the mound and he sits with a 2-5 record and an ERA of 5.32. In his last start against the St. Louis Cardinals, Stroman went four innings giving up 10 hits and six runs.
On the mound for the Dodgers will be Clayton Kershaw who sits with a 5-2 record and an ERA of 2.57. In his last start, he went seven innings, giving up four hits and zero runs.
The Cubs are 1-5 in their last six games against a left handed starter. The under is 3-0-2 in the Dodgers last five games overall. The over is 6-0-1 in Kershaw’s last seven starts against the National League Central. The Dodgers are 22-5 in Kershaw's last 27 starts against the National League Central.
Kershaw is coming off a strong start, whereas Stroman is coming off a start where he gave up six runs. Stroman has clearly lost something with his pitching this year and this Dodgers team is going to tee off on him here. Back the Dodgers -2.5 to cash. I am also throwing a few dollars on a bet of Dodgers -4.5.
