The Los Angeles Dodgers (80-35) take on the Milwaukee Brewers (62-53) Wednesday in the 3rd game of a 4-game set at American Family Field. First pitch is set for 8:10 pm ET. Let’s analyze Tipico Sportsbook’s lines around the Dodgers vs Brewers odds with MLB picks and predictions.
Season series: Tied 1-1
The Dodgers gave a game away Tuesday night after RP Craig Kimbrell coughed it up in the 11th inning. Ho hum, they are now 8-2 in the last 10 games and 24-6 in the last 30.
Tuesday was a sign of life for Milwaukee, which has fallen out of 1st place with a 14-16 record in the last 30 games. Part of the problem is they’re 17-19 against left-handed starters. That won’t be a factor Wednesday. However, they can hit enough to conquer Tony Gonsolin?

Dodgers at Brewers picks and predictions
Dodgers 5, Brewers 2
The Dodgers are 17-4 in Gonsolin’s starts, and they have only lost back-to-back games twice in the last 2 months. But -180 is too steep to throw down. Lauer has given up 3 ER or more in 6 of his last 11 starts, and the Dodgers certainly have the offensive firepower to do it. Let’s go with DODGERS OVER 2.5 RUNS FIRST 5 ININGS (+102).

LA is 38-22 on the RL on the road, and if you’ve been following them at all this season, you know they have been money on the RL. Their last 13 wins have been by 2 or more runs. Need we say more? Take the DODGERS-1.5 (-108).
The Under is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Milwaukee. There’s a slight breeze coming in from left-center, and 8 runs may be a lot to ask for. let’s LEAN UNDER 7.5 (-125).
