Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles

Dodgers -140 vs Brewers (8)

Two of the hottest teams in the NL with Milwaukee 8-2 in its last 10 and LA riding a five-game win streak. The Dodgers held on for a 5-3 win over the Brewers last night as a -155 home favorite. Much of the recent success for LA has been great pitching and hot bats. Both Manny Ramirez and Jeff Kent have batted over .400 on the current win streak.

Derek Lowe, a true groundball pitcher, has pitched his best ball for the Dodgers at home. Dave Bush is certainly no Ben Sheets and definitely not CC Sabathia. In fact, with Jeff Suppan scheduled to go Sunday for the Brewers, theres a good chance LA can sweep back-to-back series, having taken four earlier in the week from Philadelphia. Weve made money on LA in this spurt and wont quit now. DODGERS.
