Los Angeles Dodgers vs Chicago Cubs 5/6/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Los Angeles Dodgers will meet with the Chicago Cubs in MLB action in Wrigley Field, IL, on Friday, May 6, 2022, at 2:20 PM ET.

 

With a 16-7 record entering Friday afternoon, the Dodgers quickly established themselves as one of the clubs to beat in not only the National League but all of baseball. However, the road was not kind to them, as they are only 6-5, with Wrigley Field contributing to their woes even more recently.

 

The Dodgers were swept in their lone trip to Chicago last year, and the concern is that it will happen again this time.

 

With three wins in a row and four in a row overall, the Dodgers’ confidence and momentum will be crucial in how they approach Friday’s start. Unfortunately for Los Angeles, they also have a long list of injuries.

 

Five starters and four relievers were ruled out for the weekend, and while other arms came in to fill the void, the lack of depth is becoming an issue. Fortunately, Thursday off couldn’t have come at a better time.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 10 of the LA Dodgers’ last 13 matches.
  • The LA Dodgers are 4-1 SU in their previous 5 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 6 of LA Dodgers’ last 7 matches on the road.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs Chicago Cubs Predictions 5/6/2022

 

The Cubs had a dismal season that was predicted, with a 9-15 record entering Friday afternoon. While the Dodgers had their issues at Wrigley Field in recent years, the Cubs also underperformed at home this year.

 

They’re 4-8 at home, and with one of baseball’s top teams coming to town, it’s impossible to see them winning the weekend series.

 

The Cubs were swept by the White Sox at home in the middle of the week, which further added to the frustration considering the rivalry aspect of the series. Overall, they only won three of their previous ten games, and it’ll take a lot for the tides to flip on Friday.

 

The Cubs are battered as well, and although the Dodgers’ ailments are restricted to their pitching staff and rotation, the Cubs’ lineup was affected as well.

 

Andrelton Simmons (shoulder), David Bote (shoulder), and Clint Frazier (appendix) are all out. When you add in the fact that five starters were ruled out, it’s easy to see how this group’s depth issues worsened.

 

  • The Chi Cubs are 1-5 SU in their previous 6 matches.
  • The Chi Cubs are 1-7 SU in their last 8 matches at home.
  • The Cubs are 7-1 SU in their last 8 matches at home against the LA Dodgers.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs Chicago Cubs. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Dodgers. Even though they will be playing on the road, the Dodgers will undoubtedly win this game.

 

They can dominate in all aspects of the game, and their ability to find success throughout their roster will put some pressure on a Chicago club that does not have the luxury of scoring frequently. When you factor in Anderson’s early-season success, the Cubs will be seeing a pitcher they aren’t used to seeing from his time in Pittsburgh.

 

The Dodgers boast the league’s best offense in terms of runs scored and the league’s best defense in terms of runs surrendered, which will undoubtedly be a pattern over the weekend, particularly during Friday’s start. The Los Angeles Dodgers will win to a predicted score of 5-3.
