Milwaukee Brewers vs LA Dodgers Prediction

I’m on the Dodgers here. I was initially leaning Brewers and the under when Freddy Peralta was listed as the starter, but with Civale being slid in after being acquired from the Rays, I have to lean towards L.A. The Dodgers have a loaded lineup and Civale really struggled away from Tropicana Field this season and he’s also had a history of giving up home runs which doesn’t bode well against a potent Dodger lineup. I’ll side with the Dodgers in this one.
