Urias has compiled a 12-6 record with a 2.49 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP this season and has led the Dodgers to a 10-0 record in his last 10 starts.
Freddy Peralta pitched five innings and allowed two earned runs in a 5-3 Brewers win at home over the Tampa Bay Rays last Tuesday night. Peralta will be making his third start since returning from a lat strain that forced him to miss all of June and July on the injured list. The right-hander has a 4.37 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP in 10 starts this season.
Los Angeles Has Bounced Back Strong After Losses Of Late
The Dodgers were -230 favorites to extend their winning streak to 13 games Sunday on the road against the Kansas City Royals, but instead they had a rare off-day and suffered a 4-0 loss. Los Angeles is 34-6 over its last 40 games, including a 5-1 record in its last six coming off a loss.
The club is 13-2 over its last 15 road games and owns an MLB-best 39-19 record on the road this season. Bettors taking Los Angeles as their Dodgers vs Brewers prediction will be looking for business as usual on Monday night.
Milwaukee Has Struggled On Offense During Its Recent Slump
The Brewers dropped two of their three road games against the St. Louis Cardinals over the weekend, scoring only 2.33 runs per game in the process. Milwaukee fell to 4-8 over its last 12 games with its loss on Sunday. Run production has been a consistent issue as Milwaukee has averaged 3.67 runs per game during that skid.
Milwaukee made a handful of pitching-related moves at the MLB trade deadline but wasn’t able to secure any extra firepower on offense. That could be an issue down the stretch for a lineup that ranks eighth in the National League in runs per game.
Dodgers vs Brewers Pick & Insights
Dodgers: Keys To Victory
The Dodgers are 10-0 in Julio Urias’ last 10 starts with an average margin of victory of 3.6 runs in those games. Assuming Urias and the Dodgers offense play anywhere close to their potential on Monday, that streak should continue with a Dodgers vs Brewers prediction win.
Brewers: Keys To Victory
Milwaukee has been struggling on offense and that isn’t likely to come to an end against a pitcher as good as Urias. It will be up to Freddy Peralta and the Brewers bullpen to limit the scoring enough to give the offense a chance to steal a win as a Dodgers vs Brewers pick with just a few runs.
