Cease has started 14 games this season and allowed just 36 earned runs. Chicago’s ace may be one that could potentially be traded at the deadline. Would the Dodgers be a fit?

Dodgers Looking to Gain Momentum

Los Angeles would like to get back on track and stay on track, as they have won just three out of their last ten games. Los Angeles has struggled to put any type of winning streak together over the last month.

The Dodgers are one of the top offensive teams in the league, with 376 runs scored, but surprisingly the pitching has faltered. The Dodgers have a team ERA of 4.49 on the season, which ranks 21st in the league.

The Dodgers, they are going with Michael Grove on the hill. Grove is a 26-year-old right-hander that has made five starts this season for the Dodgers. In his last outing, he went just four innings after allowing seven hits and four runs. Grove struck out two in that game. On the season, Grove has 23 strikeouts and just eight walks.

Freddie Freeman is having a fantastic season for the Dodgers. He leads the team with a .331 batting average. Max Muncy is providing the power, with his 18 home runs, but is hitting below .200 on the season. J.D. Martinez has 16 home runs and 47 batted in on the season.

Los Angeles Wins at Home

While the White Sox win this starting pitching matchup, the Dodgers are the better baseball team. Clutch hitting and a solid bullpen are what will put them over the top in this one.

When making a bet for the Thursday night game, taking the Los Angeles Dodgers at -150 over the Chicago White Sox is the move.
