Brewers vs Dodgers betting preview

Starting pitchers

Adrian Houser (4-8, 4.72 ERA): Adrian Houser (elbow) makes his first start since June 30 in an intimidating spot. The right-hander from Oklahoma went 1-3 with a 6.30 ERA over six starts in June before hitting the shelf. He’s yet to face the Dodgers in his six-year MLB career.

Andrew Heaney (1-1, 1.77 ERA): Andrew Heaney had a Jekyll-and-Hyde performance against the Brewers on Thursday, striking out 10 batters while serving up three home runs. He was charged with three earned runs and allowed five total runs in 4 2-3 innings that day. The southpaw has allowed only one run over 19 2-3 innings at home in 2022.

Brewers vs Dodgers picks and predictions

Our side and total predictions are based upon our analysis of the line and total in this game. Our best bet is our favorite pick across all markets.

Moneyline analysis

Though the price is hardly appealing, there’s no value in a losing ticket. The Dodgers are the better bet on the moneyline.

L.A. ran its record up to 42-13 in its last 55 home games against teams above .500 with an emphatic 10-1 triumph over Milwaukee on Tuesday night. The Dodgers will try to give Andrew Heaney all the run support he needs in this spot, but so far he hasn’t required all that much offense behind him at home.

Heaney sports a 0.46 ERA at Dodger Stadium this season to go along with a .157 opponent batting average. This spells trouble for a Brewers' offense that’s 3-9 in their last 12 road games, and 1-7 in their last eight meetings with the Dodgers in Los Angeles. 

Milwaukee is hitting .196 as a team in August, dead last in the major leagues. Every day players Andrew McCutchen, Hunter Renfroe, Luis Urias, and Rowdy Tellez are among those batting below .200 on the month. 

L.A. hitters have been just the opposite this year, averaging a MLB-best 5.34 runs per game. Though this team has never taken on Adrian Houser, it doesn't figure to struggle with a pitcher sporting a 4.72 ERA and 1.48 WHIP on the campaign. 

Houser is likely to hit the showers early as he makes his first big-league start since June 30, meaning more work for the Milwaukee bullpen. This unit is 17th in strand rate (70.8%) and 19th in FIP (3.88) this month. 

Look for the Dodgers to score early and often in a runaway victory.

Prediction: Dodgers moneyline (-238 at WynnBET)

Over/Under analysis

The Over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings between these two squads, and Over bettors look poised to cash once more on Wednesday night.

Prop players have plenty of ways to go when it comes to the L.A. lineup, which is hitting .278 in August, second only to the St. Louis Cardinals (.290). Trea Turner, Mookie Betts, Freddie Freeman, Will Smith, and Max Muncy are all batting above .300 this month.

Freeman’s bat has been particularly potent over the last week, as he’s hitting .357 in that stretch. He had four RBI in his club’s blowout win on Tuesday. 

Muncy has supplied the power of late, as he owns a 1.074 OPS over the last two weeks. 

Christian Yelich could save the Brewers from being shut out on Wednesday. He had two hits in each of the first two games of this series, and has a .360 average over the last seven days. 

Trend bettors should also note that the Over is 4-1-1 in the Brewers’ last six road games, and 6-1-1 in the Dodgers’ last eight contests after allowing two or fewer runs in their previous affair.

Prediction: Over 8.5 (-108 at Unibet)

Best bet

Let’s try to extract some value in a Dodger victory by backing them on the run line instead of the moneyline.

The Brewers’ bullpen has been leaky all year, especially in the middle innings. But the Dodgers’ relief corps has been just the opposite, authoring a MLB-best 1.91 ERA in August. Evan Phillips and Alex Vesia each have nine scoreless appearances in August, and are tied for the team lead in holds in that span at three apiece. 

Heaney has been effective on the mound, but he hasn’t pitched deep into games this year, averaging a modest 4.55 innings per start. But the L.A. bullpen should give him a lift against a flailing Milwaukee order. 

The Dodgers’ offense faces a far less daunting opponent on the mound in Houser, and should plate plenty of runs against him and the Brewers’ relievers. 

Pick: Dodgers -1.5 (-120 at PointsBet)
