Free Betting Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers -149
The Dodgers are playing some great baseball and that will definitely help them out in this game here. However, the Dodgers are facing Hendricks who has done really well for the Cub on the year and should be able to slow down the Dodgers offense and potentially hand over a lead to the bullpen, which will most likely blow the lead and allow the Dodgers to squeeze out a close win in the game. Final Score Prediction, Los Angeles Dodgers win 4-3.
