Los Angeles Dodgers vs Chicago Cubs 4/20/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Los Angeles Dodgers will go against the Chicago Cubs in MLB action in Wrigley Field, IL, on Thursday, April 20, 2023, at 7:40 PM ET.


The LA Dodgers are still seeking the success that helped them set a franchise record with 111 victories in 2022. All season long, LA only had one unbeaten run, a three-game run that ended on April 7.


The Dodgers had a chance to win two games in a row against the visiting Mets on Wednesday afternoon after Clayton Kershaw’s shutout victory on Tuesday night.


Unfortunately, the Dodgers’ erratic performance persisted in a 5-3 defeat to the Mets on Wednesday afternoon.


Despite playing without Mookie Betts, Chris Taylor, and Will Smith, the Dodgers only managed 5 hits against six Mets pitchers.


On Thursday night, the Dodgers will pitch to righty Michael Grove in an effort to turn around his season. Grove made three appearances this year and has a 9.00 ERA and a 0-1 record.


However, Grove’s best game of the year came against the Cubs. He pitched 5.2 innings, giving up just two hits and one run in the Dodgers’ final 2-1 victory.


Despite Grove’s less-than-spectacular stats this season, LA won two of his three starts. He pitched 13 innings in total, giving up 16 hits and 13 runs. Grove has 14 Ks against five walks.


  • The total went UNDER in 4 of the LA Dodgers’ last 5 matches.
  • The LA Dodgers are 4-8 SU in their last 12 matches.
  • The LA Dodgers are 11-2 SU in their last 13 matches against Chi Cubs.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs Chicago Cubs Predictions 4/20/2023


The Chicago Cubs changed significantly since the group broke an almost 100-year championship drought in 2016.


Adding Atlanta Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson as a free agent highlighted the Cubs’ offseason emphasis on speed and defense.


With a .344 average and three of the team’s 22 steals so far this season, Swanson is the Cubs’ leader.


Similarly to Swanson, the Cubs are off to a strong start with a 10-6 record and four victories in their last five games as they head into the final game of their six-game West Coast road trip on Wednesday afternoon.


The Cubs defeated Oakland, 12-2, on Wednesday in Oakland after scoring 10 runs over the final four innings and Justin Steele pitching six innings while allowing just two runs.


For Thursday’s season-opening game against the Dodgers, the Cubs will use starting pitcher Jameson Taillon, another player they signed in the summer.


In his first three starts, Taillon has a 4.50 ERA and a record of 0–2. Taillon threw 14 innings, giving up 15 hits, 16 strikeouts, and 4 walks.


Taillon was excellent last weekend against the Dodgers. In the 2-1 defeat for the Cubs, he pitched five innings and gave up just two hits and no runs.


  • The Chi Cubs are 5-1 SU in their last 6 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Chi Cubs’ last 6 matches against the LA Dodgers.
  • The Chi Cubs are 11-4 SU in their last 15 matches at home.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs Chicago Cubs. The MLB pick for this game is the Chicago Cubs. The Dodgers had a perfect 7-0 record against the Cubs last year.


The Cubs were able to win two out of three matches against LA in Los Angeles during the first series of this season. The Dodgers are currently only .500 and were unable to regain the momentum they had all of last season.


The Cubs, meanwhile, return home following a successful trip to the West Coast that included four victories in five games prior to Wednesday afternoon’s series finale in Oakland.


When these two pitchers faced off last weekend in Oakland, they both displayed strong performances. The Chicago Cubs will win to a predicted score of 6-5.
