Los Angeles Dodgers vs Chicago Cubs. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Cubs dropped four of their past five matches, including six of their last seven at Wrigley Field. They struggled offensively in recent matches, scoring only six runs in their past five.


The Dodgers, who are second in the league in scoring average, had little trouble scoring. Even though they did not hit the ball as well against left-handed pitchers, the Dodgers will have no trouble scoring against the Cubs because Steele struggled on the mound, giving up 11 runs in his last 3 starts and opponents have a .307 batting average against him, so take the Dodgers to win big.


The Los Angeles Dodgers will win to a predicted score of 4-1.
