Why the Los Angeles Dodgers are a good bet?

Hyun-Jin Ryu has pitched well during the MLB Playoffs. He threw 7 innings against the Braves in the NLDS and yielded 0 earned runs from 4 hits in 7 innings. Then, he pitched 4.1 innings versus the Brewers on Oct. 13. He gave up only 2 earned runs off 6 hits.


The Dodgers won both games that Ryu’s started. He’ll have his best stuff working on Friday, it will have been 6 days of rest, which means there’s a great chance he shuts down the Brewers’ bats.

Why the Milwaukee Brewers are a good bet?

Scheduled to start Game 5, Wade Miley faced one batter, threw 5 pitches, and then manager Greg Counsell pulled him. Counsell said it was by design, but the Dodgers blasted the Brewers 5-2, taking a 3-2 lead in the best-of-7 series.

  Dodgers vs Brewers Game 6 is a must-win situation for the home team.  

Miley’s got a rested arm, which means Counsell’s gamble could work. If Miley brings his usual intensity to the mound, he could throw up to 7 innings. That might put the Brewers in a great position to win Game 6. If they win Game 6, Counsell’s got plenty of options on who starts in Game 7.

Expert MLB Betting Prediction for Dodgers vs Brewers

Most everyone on the planet wondered what the heck Counsell was doing in Game 5 when he pulled Miley after only 5 pitches. Counsell’s plan might have been to do exactly that. If the gamble works, if Miley comes up huge on Friday, nobody will question Counsell because then he can pitch his top starter, Jhoulys Chacin, for as long as he needs to on Saturday in Game 7.


Although manager moves are always difficult to handicap, Counsell might have made a brilliant one with Miley. His pitchers throw much better at Miller Park than they do at Dodger Stadium while handing Game 5 to the Dodgers means Counsell mustn’t face Clayton Kershaw for the rest of the series.


Brewers should even the series on Friday with a huge win.
