MLB Odds Preview: Dodgers at Cubs May 31

April 4th, 2024 Betting on MLB Baseball

MLB odds fans will feast on this fourth and final game of the MLB betting odds series between the NL West leading Dodgers and the home team Chicago Cubs. On Sunday May 31st the two opponents will wrap up a four-game series at Wrigley which should be one of the more intriguing match ups of that weekend in the baseball odds. The Dodgers enter as the best team in baseball as the Cubs will try and stop their slide in the MLB betting odds standings.

Baseball odds will be favor the Dodgers in this series but the fourth and final game could be difficult to call. Much of it will depend on who’s on the mound for both teams. LA’s starting rotation has been as efficient as any in the baseball odds this season and anyone of their starters would make for a rough day for Cubbies batters.

Most likely Clayton Kershaw will be the Dodgers starter which isn’t great news for MLB odds bettors looking to play the Cubbies. Kershaw has had his moments this baseball betting odds season and is 2-3 this season in nine MLB odds starts. He’s got a 4.32 ERA with 51 Ks in 50 innings worth of starts. The knock on Kershaw this season has been his opponents’ ability to get to him early and he hasn’t logged as many innings as you’d like from the third man in the starting rotation.

If the Cubs can get to Kershaw early and for the bull pen to work, they’ll have a good chance of winning this MLB odds match up in their own back yard. Chicago has some strong starters, but Sean Marshall, (the Cubs’ likely starter in this match up) is not one of them.

The greatest strength the Cubs have heading into this MLB betting odds contest is the home field advantage. The Cubs are 12-7 at home this baseball odds season. The Cubs also have their backs against the wall as they’ve dropped to fourth place in the NL Central MLB odds standings. The Cubs have to take advantage of this home stand. The Dodgers are the best team in baseball, but the Cubs have a chance against Kershaw in this MLB odds match up and they should be able to pull the win out.

The Dodgers have the upper hand in this baseball odds series but one of the Cubs best chances to get a win against LA will be in this game.
