NLCS Game 7: Los Angeles Dodgers at Milwaukee Brewers
It’s a great time of year to be a sports fan, and particularly good for bettors, as there is something good to wager on every single day of the week. NFL and college football are in the middle of their respective seasons, while the NHL and NBA are back for yet another exciting season. As if that weren’t enough, we also have the MLB playoffs going on, although we are now getting down to the wire there.
`The Boston Red Sox knocked off the defending champion Houston Astros a little quicker than a lot of us expected and are now awaiting the winner of the NLCS. Boston could well know their opponent as early as Friday night, but there is also a possibility that this series might end up going the distance.
It is the LA Dodgers who hold a 3-2 series lead, but with the series shifting back to Milwaukee for the final 2 games, we are not quite ready to deliver the last rites to the Brewers. If we do go to a Game 7, it will be played on Sunday night in front of what is sure to be a raucous Brewers crowd.
NLCS: Los Angeles Dodgers at Milwaukee Brewers (Game 6 - Home Game 3)
Why bet on the Los Angeles Dodgers
The one major edge that the Dodgers have in this series is an experience. After all, it was just 12 months ago when they traveled this same path on their way to a World Series appearance.
They ended up losing to the Houston Astros in that one, but they were also immediately installed as one of the favorites to represent the National League in 2018. It has not always been pretty, but the Dodgers are now just one win away from getting back to the World Series and giving themselves a shot at redemption.
After stumbling a little through the opening 3 games of this series, which resulted in them going behind 1-2, they have pulled themselves up and played well in Games 4 and 5, giving up just 3 runs in back to back wins. That type of pitching is usually what gets a team over the hump at this late stage of the season.
Why bet on the Milwaukee Brewers
It was only about a month and a half ago when we all counted out the Brewers in the regular season. They had gone on a bit of a slump and entered September well off the pace being set by the Chicago Cubs at the top of the Central Division.
They were also in a dogfight just to be part of the Wild Card, with a lot of baseball fans declaring this team DOA.
They proved everyone wrong, though, going on an 8-game winning streak to end the season and taking out the Cubs in a tiebreaker game that allowed them to move directly into the NLDS. They then swept the Rockies and set up this series with the Dodgers. We may have counted this team out once already, so maybe we shouldn’t do it again.
Expert Pick and Predicted Score
The Brewers have had a fantastic season, but they are probably just a piece or two away from being a team that can really challenge for a World Series. I have to go with the Dodgers to win and move on to their second straight World Series.
