Milwaukee Brewers vs LA Dodgers Prediction

The Milwaukee Brewers and the plus money is always worth a look given how good they've been this season, and it doesn't hurt that Freddy Peralta is on the mound. However, you can also argue that the Dodgers at home with the cheap price and James Paxton on the hill is even greater value. You don't get these spots with the Dodgers often especially at home. The Dodgers have had a lot of success with James Paxton on the mound this season. I have to side with the Dodgers and the cheap price, as I'd need more bang for my buck to pull the trigger with the Brewers.
