The (26-23) Los Angeles’ Dodgers grueling schedule to close out the month of May continues, as they travel to the “Windy City” on what should be a very exiting 3-game set with the NL Central division leaders, the Chicago Cubs (29-21), from Wrigley Field. Sluggers at SportsBetting.com have the home Chicago Cubs -124 favorite as they host the Los Angeles Dodgers +114 with the O/U in runs set at 8.5 total.
The Cubbies come into this matinee with a two game loosing streak. They are 5-5 in their last 10 games, but they have been solid at home, with a 19-8 record.
The second place, NL West Dodgers, kick off this road trip at Wrigley Field with a 1 game winning streak, after salvaging the final game of a weekend series against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Overall, they are 6-4 in their last 10 games, and are 11-12 on the road.
