5 units on Milwaukee -130 (moneyline) (risk 5 to return 5)  RESULT: LOSS

This game is all about Ben Sheets and more importantly, a healthy Ben Sheets. This guy doesn't get the same credit as other top pitchers in the league, because of his oft-injured status, but he is healthy and when he is, so are his numbers and results. Sheets is carrying a 2.53 ERA into this one which has helped the Brewers to a 5-2 record when he toes the rubber. The Dodgers thought this would be a breakout year for Chad Billingsley, as he has posted a 19-9 mark over the last two years. It does appear the league is gaining on him as he has not been nearly as effective this season, and the Dodgers are winning just 33% of his nine starts. The walks are way up and that is a sure sign of confidence, and trust of his stuff is getting in his head, so we'll take the opportunity to ride the Brew Crew at home in this one.
