Brewers vs Dodgers NLCS Preview & Free Pick | Prediction [Game 3]

Milwaukee (1-1) at LA Dodgers (1-1)
When: Monday, October 15th 2018
Where: Dodger Stadium,
Los Angeles, California

Time: 7:35 ET | TV: FS1
Opening Odds: Los Angeles -163/7


Los Angeles Dodgers’ third baseman Justin Turner redeemed himself in a big way in Game 2 of the NLCS when he smashed the go-ahead two-run home run to prevent his team from going down 2-0 against the Milwaukee Brewers in their best-of-seven series. The Dodgers took Game 2 by a 4-3 margin after Turner went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts in the 6-5 setback in the opener. Game 3 is set for Monday night back in Los Angeles with Brewers ace Jhoulys Chacin on the mound to take on rookie sensation Walker Buehler. Milwaukee pitchers have really helped themselves at the plate this series, going 3-for-4 including a Brandon Woodruff homer in Game 1. Yasiel Puig is 0-for-5 in the series and 3-for-14 without an RBI in the postseason and has just one dinger since September 19th. Milwaukee went 2-2 in four games at Dodger Stadium during the regular season, including a 21-5 loss in their last visit.

Pitchers: Brewers – Jhoulys Chacin (1-0, 0.00 ERA) | Dodgers – Walker Buehler (0-0, 9.00)

Chacin has come up big in his last two games including the tiebreaker game against the Cubs on October 1st, then followed that up with five scoreless frames against the Rockies in an NLDS victory. Chacin suffered through his worst start of the season at Dodger Stadium on August 2nd when he was tagged for nine runs – eight earned – on five hits and four walks over 4.1 innings.


Buehler allowed five runs on two hits and three walks in his postseason debut at Atlanta during the NLDS. The rookie right-hander lost his lone start against Milwaukee in the regular season despite allowing one run over seven innings. Buehler was terrific at home, going 4-3 with a 1.93 ERA and 84 strikeouts across 74.2 innings at Dodger Stadium in 2018.

Buehler was great all season, but got roughed-up in his first postseason start and has a lot of pressure on him. I can’t lay -165 against this Brewers lineup who’s helped them win 12 of their last 13 games. Chacin has looked really good and is not fazed by the big stage and has plenty of experience pitching at Dodger Stadium.

Pick: Brewers +155
