Chicago Cubs vs Los Angeles Dodgers 3/20/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Chicago Cubs will meet with the Los Angeles Dodgers in MLB action in Camelback Ranch-Glendale Phoenix, AZ, on Sunday, March 20, 2022, at 4:05 PM ET. The Cubs will begin their quest for roster reinforcements after a 91-defeat season, balancing immediate competition with long-term planning.

 

The team’s next actions will be crucial in determining the vision for the North Siders’ 2022 season since the team’s leadership said that it does not want to begin a lengthy reconstruction.

 

On December 1, just minutes before the lockout started, they acquired right Marcus Stroman to a three-year, $71 million deal. After the 2023 season, Stroman’s contract contains an opt-out clause. Stroman instantly boosts the rotation as one of the best free-agent arms available.

 

There is no proven closer, so the Cubs will have to win manager David Ross’ trust as late-inning weapons with a mixture of guys. Ross loves senior expertise in the bullpen, and the Cubs did a good job in recent seasons of locating cost-effective relievers who can make an impression.

 

The Cubs are expected to go after some veteran pitchers to help balance out the young talent on the roster.

 

  • The Cubs are 2-3 in their last 5 matches.
  • Chicago is 19-16 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 14 of the Cubs’ 36 last matches at home.

Chicago Cubs vs Los Angeles Dodgers Predictions 3/20/2022

 

The Dodgers arrived at No. 1 in our first unscientific preseason ratings of the year, thanks to their never-ending depth and previous season’s success. The Dodgers lost significant players in free agency, including Max Scherzer and Corey Seager, but Trea Turner’s return to shortstop should help stabilize the infield.

 

The Dodgers were in need of starting pitching, and one of their own, Clayton Kershaw, was allegedly re-signed to a one-year contract.

 

The Dodgers began the 2021 year with a 13-2 record, tying their greatest regular-season start by a reigning world champion in team history. The Dodgers clinched a playoff berth for the 9th straight season on September 14, extending the franchise’s best postseason run.

 

For the first season since 2012, the Dodgers finished one match behind the San Francisco Giants in the National League West division. They had the most victories (106) of any MLB club that did not finish first in its division or league, topping the 104 victories of the Chicago Cubs in 1909 and the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1942.

 

  • The Dodgers are 4-1 in their last 5 matches.
  • Los Angeles is 15-19 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 18 of the Dodgers’ 35 last matches at home.

Chicago Cubs vs Los Angeles Dodgers. The MLB pick for this game is the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs’ use of the trade market to import more young talent into their farm system became obvious last year.

 

At the major league level, the organization is unable to transfer top prospects or short-term profits. As a result, the Cubs should continue to scout the free market for players to satisfy the team’s modest requirements in 2022.

 

And if an opportunity circumstance arises that justifies a long-term investment, Chicago may take advantage of it. This was the case with the three-year Stroman pact. The Chicago Cubs will win to a predicted score of 4-3
