2017 MLB Los Angeles At Milwaukee Winning Predictions
There are a couple of different ways to build a baseball team, and he method used often depends on the size of the market and the amount of money that the team has in the bank. A team like the LA Dodgers has money to burn, thanks in large part to having an ownership group with very deep pockets. They are more than happy to throw heaps of money at start players in an effort to lure them to Los Angeles, although using that approach has not brought them any sort of postseason success.
On the other side of the coin is a team like the Milwaukee Brewers. Over the past few seasons, they have been dumping their highest paid players in return for prospects, slashing payroll and laying the foundation for what they hoped would be future successes. It’s a pair of totally different approaches, and both appear to be paying some dividends this season. That is why the weekend match-up between these two teams is going to be so interesting to watch.

Why bet on the LA Dodgers
The Dodgers (33-21) have spent the majority of the season playing catch-up to the Rockies and Diamondbacks at the top of the NL West, and their persistence has finally paid off. They have gone 8-2 in their last 10 games, and now have a half game lead at the top of the division. The Los Angeles Dodgers will try to maintain that lead by closing out a 3-game series versus the Cardinals with a win. If they can pull that feat off, it will mark the 4th straight series that LA will have won over the past couple of weeks. This level of consistency is important, because it looks as though Colorado and Arizona may be in this fight for the long haul. Clayton Kershaw (7-2, 2.37 ERA) will start for LA.
Why bet on the Milwaukee Brewers
If you had bet on the Milwaukee Brewers (28-25) to win the NL Central this season, you would have got some huge odds, as well as some rather odd stares from the bookie taking the bet. The Brewers are a team that are slowly regaining some form of respectability, but the feeling is that they are still a year or two away from a full return. For now, though, they have the lead at the top of a division that is proving to be a good deal more competitive than anyone expected. Milwaukee still need a lot of help in the pitching department, but they can score runs with the best of them. Jimmy Nelson (3-3, 3.83 ERA) will be on the mound for the Brewers.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
The Dodgers have proven to be a little fragile on the road this season, but they tend to do well whenever Clayton Kershaw takes to the mound. I think they find a way to win this one.
