Milwaukee Brewers (66-62; 57-65-6 O/U) vs. Los Angeles Dodgers (89-36; 59-62-4 O/U)

MLB: Friday, August 25, 2017 at 10:10pm EST

Line: LA Dodgers -181/Milwaukee +171

Total: 8

The Los Angeles Dodgers will host the Milwaukee Brewers as the clubs kick off a three game series Friday night from Dodger Stadium. The Brewers will give the ball to 29-year old right-hander Chase Anderson, and the Dodgers will counter with 29-year old right-hander Kenta Maeda. The Dodgers took two of three over the Brewers in early June.

Anderson Solid in Return to Action

Chase Anderson will take the mound for the 18th time of the season, targeting his second straight victory. Anderson made his first start since June 28th five days ago and was very sharp, holding the Rockies to only one run in five innings and earned the win. The third-year right-hander is having a tremendous season, boasting a 2.83 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP accompanied with a 7-2 record in 95.1 innings logged. The Dodgers have given him trouble as he owns a 1-3 record with a 5.67 ERA in eight career starts. Yasiel Puig is 1 for 9 with two RBI’s against Anderson, while Corey Seager is 1 for 6, and Adrian Gonzalez is 8 for 15 with three RBI’s. Keon Broxton is the hottest Brewers hitter right now, smashing four home runs along with seven RBI’s over his last eight games. The 27-year old centerfielder does not hit for average, however he does have some pop in his bat, currently hitting .230 with 20 home runs and 48 RBI’s. Broxton is 2 for 12 against the Dodgers this season.

The Brewers are scoring an average of 4.69 runs per game, ranking them 19th overall, and are hitting .251 as a team. The Milwaukee pitching has been solid, sporting a 4.13 team ERA, placing them 12th in the Majors.

Maeda Targets Fifth Straight Home Win

Kenta Maeda will get the call for the 23rd time of the season, hunting for his third win of August. Maeda allowed four runs in six innings against the Tigers in his latest effort and was charged with the loss to bring his record to 11-5. The 6-foot right-hander is having a strong season, boasting a 3.88 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP in 111.1 innings pitched. He faced the Brewers in June and allowed two runs in four innings, and has now held Milwaukee to only four runs in 16.1 career innings. Curtis Granderson is swinging a red hot bat, smashing five home runs along with 15 RBI’s over his last 12 games. The veteran centerfielder adds power to the Dodgers potent lineup as he has belted 21 homers on the season to go with 57 RBI’s and a .224 average. Granderson is 6 for 24 against the Brewers this season.

The Dodgers are swinging the bats well and are now averaging 5.08 runs per game, good for sixth in the Majors, and feature a .256 team batting average. The Los Angeles pitching leads the Major Leagues with a 3.13 team ERA.

Trends:

The Milwaukee Brewers are:

  • under is 12-2 in their last 14 games against a team with a winning record.
  • under is 19-7-1 in their last 27 road games.
  • under is 8-3 in Anderson’s last 11 starts on four days of rest.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are:

  • under is 19-7-1 in their last 27 home games against a team with a winning record.
  • under is 18-7-1 in their last 26 games against a starter with a WHIP below 1.15.

I am definitely going with the under in this contest. Anderson limited the Rockies to only one run in his return to action five days ago, and he now features a stifling 1.35 ERA over his last eight starts, so I am very confident backing him. Furthermore. Maeda owns a solid 3.18 ERA at Dodger Stadium this season, and Milwaukee has only scored four runs in 16.1 innings against him, making the under a strong play in this one.
