Chicago Cubs vs Los Angeles Dodgers 4/16/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Chicago Cubs will go against the Los Angeles Dodgers in MLB action in Dodger Stadium, CA, on Sunday, April 16, 2023, at 4:10 PM ET.


This will be Drew Smyly’s third season-opening start. Smyly suffered a loss in his debut after giving up seven runs (six earned) in 4.2 innings against the Reds.


Next, he was outstanding, holding the Mariners to just one run over the course of five innings to earn the Cubs a victory.


In 2022, the seasoned left-hander had one of his better seasons overall thanks to a 3.47 ERA and 1.19 WHIP. Smyly is 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA in 23.1 career innings and gave up 7 runs in 6.1 innings against the Dodgers last season.


Chicago performed admirably in its first round of games. They defeated the Rangers and Mariners in the back-to-back series.


Prior to this series, they produced 19 runs against the Mariners, and they did so again on Friday. Today, they are in the top 10 in a few successful categories.


The pitching was the problem in former years, but this season it showed signs of progress.


  • The Chicago Cubs are 6-3 SU in their last 9 matches.
  • The Chi Cubs are 1-11 SU in their last 12 games with the  LA Dodgers.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Chi Cubs’ last 5 matches on the road.

Chicago Cubs vs Los Angeles Dodgers Predictions 4/16/2023


On Sunday, Julio Urias will pitch for the fourth time. Last time out, Urias continued his dominance against the rival Giants, allowing just one run over six innings, and he earned another victory to move to 3-0 on the short season.


The southpaw is having yet another outstanding campaign, giving up two runs or less in each of his three starts, compiling a meager 1.50 ERA and 0.83 WHIP in 18 innings.


Urias is 1-1 with a 5.01 ERA in 23.1 career innings and gave up five runs in two innings last season against the Cubs. 


The Dodgers started last week’s road trip with three straight losses to the Diamondbacks, but they bounced back by capturing two of three games in San Francisco before this series, scoring 19 runs overall.


The team produced a lot of bombs, hitting 27 home runs, good for second place. By Saturday night, they won two of their previous three home matches.


  • The total went OVER in 5 of the LA Dodgers’ last 7 matches.
  • The LA Dodgers are 4-2 SU in their last 6 matches at home.
  • The Dodgers are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games at home against Chi Cubs.

Chicago Cubs vs Los Angeles Dodgers. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Dodgers. Experienced pitcher Drew Smyly is pitching for the Cubs.


The southpaw took a beating against the Reds in his lone road start of the year, surrendering seven runs (six earned). Throughout his career, he battled LA.


The veteran has a terrible 5.40 ERA in 23.1 career innings and gave up seven runs in 6.1 innings against LA last season.


Julio Urias, the starting pitcher for the Dodgers, was a Cy Young contender the previous season and was outstanding in all three of his starts.


In his last two starts, which came against the Rockies and Giants, the left-hander gave up just one run overall. With him on the mound, LA won all three contests, outscoring the opposition 22-5 in those three matches.


The Los Angeles Dodgers will win to a predicted score of 7-3.
