MLB: Chicago Cubs at Los Angeles Dodgers Game 3 Betting Preview


With the NLCS all tied up at one game apiece the series will shift to Los Angeles for the next three games. The Dodgers won two of three at home over the Cubs during the regular season and posted one of baseball’s best home records but they’ll face a stiff test in Game three. With Cy Young candidate Jake Arrieta getting the start for Chicago the Cubs opened as the favorite and here to break down the game is Joe Osborne. This game is all the Jake Arrieta and how he’s performed on the west coast. Now he was a much better picture at home this season but over the past two seasons the Cubs are 9 and 1 when he starts on the road versus West Division teams. In six of those starts he allowed one run or less and in his last stirr at Dodger Stadium? Oh nothing special. Just the best start of his career when he no-hit the Dodgers. Racking up 12 K’s and walking just one. LA will send Rich Hill to the mound and he’s hit a skit at the worst possible point of the season. The Dodgers have lost four of his last five starts a only pitch two and two-thirds innings in the game that they won. In seven innings pitched in the playoffs he’s allowed five runs but he’s been a beast in three home starts as a Dodger. Posting a 0.53 ERA in 17 innings pitched at Dodgers stadium. One other thing to keep in mind, the winner of game three has gone on to win seven of the last ten in NLCS. Enjoy the game and as always keep chasing that paper. Another factor in the Cubs favour for game 3 is there bounce-back ability. They don’t often drop two straight as they’re 18 and 5 after a loss since the all-star break.
