1.5 units on Los Angeles +116 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 3.24) RESULT: LOSS
Chicago is favored, but slumping on the road, losing four in a row. This is the sixth straight road game for the Cubbies, the end of a tough trip out West. Chicago turns its lonely eyes to ace Jake Arrieta, but he is 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA in two career starts against the Dodgers and has struggled against outfielder Carl Crawford, who is 5-for-11 with a homer and two doubles. The Cubs are 0-4 against a team with a winning record and face one of the best teams in baseball in the Dodgers, ranked third in runs scored and sixth in slugging. The Dodgers are on a 55-23 run at home, 4-0 at home against a team with a winning record and 8-0 versus the NL Central. Dodgers lefty Alex Wood (9-8, 3.70 ERA) is throwing well with his new team, allowing 3 runs or less in four straight starts. He faces a Chicago offense that is 16th in runs scored and 15th in OBP. Los Angeles is 4-0 against Chicago, and the Cubs are 3-8 in the last 11 meetings in Los Angeles. Play the Los Angeles Dodgers.
