The Los Angeles Dodgers will host the Chicago Cubs for a three-game set this weekend from Dodger Stadium. 

Cubs Betting Preview

Chicago comes in 7-6 after losing to Seattle. The Cubs couldn’t pull off the sweep at Wrigley, as the Mariners would control the final contest throughout, and hand them a three-run loss, 5-2.  The Chicago offense is scoring 5.75 runs per game, while batting .280, with a .340 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.00 ERA, with a 1.29 WHIP. Dansby Swanson had four hits in the game two win over Seattle, and he leads the Cubs in batting average (.400). Fellow newcomers Cody Bellinger and Trey Mancini are tied for the team-lead in RBI at 9.  

Justin Steele (1-0, 0.75, 11 Ks) will get the call for Chicago. The third-year pitcher has come out in shut out form, going six innings in both starts against Texas and Milwaukee, and allowing just one run combined.

Dodgers Betting Preview

Los Angeles moved 7-6 after defeating San Francisco. The Dodgers pulled away with a big sixth inning, and beat the Giants by five, 10-5. The Los Angeles offense is scoring 5.75 runs per game, while batting .238, with a .360 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.30 ERA, with a 1.19 WHIP. Freddie Freeman will look to respond to a quiet series in the Bay, and he leads LAD in batting average (.353). Max Muncy was dominant in San Francisco, homering four times to take over the team lead in RBI (14). 

Noah Syndergaard (1-1, 3.75 ERA, 13 Ks) will take the mound for Los Angeles. The eighth-year pitcher struggled in his first road start of the season against Arizona, allowing six runs in just four innings of work. Syndergaard did pitch noticeably better in his season debut at home versus the same DBacks team, striking out six in six innings pitched, while allowing just one run. 

Chicago vs Los Angeles Trends

Chicago is 6-6 against the spread this season, with a 6-4-1 over/under record. Los Angeles is 4-5 ATS, with a 5-4-1 O/U record.

Corey's Free Pick

This matchup could end up being the best series of the weekend. Chicago may have an advantage on the mound coming into this one, but I think Los Angeles will find a way to give Justin Steele a tough time at Dodger Stadium. In return, the Cubs may also end up giving the LAD pitching staff trouble, and the firepower from both sides could show up on the scoreboard. Take the over for game one of the Cubs/Dodgers series.
