Dodgers vs Brewers NLCS Game 7 Odds & Prediction

When: Saturday, Oct. 20 at 8:05 pm ET Where: Miller Park, Milwaukee, WI TV: FS1 Radio: Los Angeles / Milwaukee Live Stream: Starting Pitchers:  LAD – Walker Buehler / MIL – Jhoulys Chacin

Why the Los Angeles Dodgers are a good bet at -105?

Walker Buehler failed in his first attempt against the Brewers, he allowed 4 earned runs in 7 innings off 4 hits, but he got a chance to throw enough pitches to make the adjustments in Game 7.

With only a few adjustments Buehler could turn his form against the Brewers around enough to throw deep into this game. Not only that, he allowed 3 of those 4 runs in innings 6 and 7. Roberts will throw everybody out there to win this game, which means Beuhler could throw 5 scoreless innings before he sets up the relievers.

Why the Milwaukee Brewers are a good bet at -115?

Manager Greg Counsell used 5 pitchers in the Game 2 win when Jhoulys Chacin started. He’s looking for the same performance by Chacin, 5.1 innings, 6 strikeouts, 2 walks, and no earned runs. If he gets it, the Brewers could be impossible to keep from winning this game.

Milwaukee’s shown that their bullpen can out pitch the Dodgers’ bullpen. Chacin could go longer than 5 if Counsell wants him to. Surprisingly, Counsell’s got more options again than what Roberts’ has with his starting pitcher.

Final MLB Betting Analysis for Dodgers at Brewers

The reason Counsell’s got more options than Roberts is because while Roberts used 6 pitchers in Friday’s Game 6, Counsell only used 4 pitchers. Counsell used Miley for 4.1 innings, Knebel for 1.2, Jeffress for 1, and Burnes for 2.

Roberts used Ryu for 3, Urias, Wood, Maeda, and Hill all for 1. He also used Floro and Ferguson for .2 and .1. It’s obvious that Roberts’ idea was to save Clayton Kershaw for a couple innings. That could backfire because Kershaw went 7 innings only 3 days ago. He’s not used to pitching off such short rest.

Things have aligned for the Brewers to win Game 7 and head to the World Series. Milwaukee’s the play.
