Two of the top teams in the National League begin a weekend series in Milwaukee as the Brewers host the Los Angeles Dodgers.  The Dodgers send their ace, Chad Billingsley on Friday while the Brewers counter with Braden Looper.  Billingsley will be going for his 10th win of the season on Friday.  He is 9-4 with a 3.14 ERA this season while Looper is 7-4 with a 4.78 ERA.

 

SBG Global reports that early MLB Betting has the public taking Dodgers on the Road.

 

Billingsley hasn’t gotten a win since June 14th but not all of that is his fault. He had a sure win get away in his last start when Jonathan Broxton blew the save.  He is 2-0 in his career against the Brewers.

 

Looper is coming off a solid outing against the Cubs where he allowed just two run on six hits in six innings.  He is 4-1 at home this season with a 4.03 ERA in ten starts.

 

The Brewers expect to get Corey Hart back on Friday.  He injured his foot on Tuesday but hopes to be back in the lineup on Friday. He is hitting .256 this season with nine home runs and 35 RBIs. "We have two guys who have basically carried us," Hart said about All-Stars Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun, "and now Casey [McGehee] is coming on strong. We're right in the hunt, [even though] a bunch of guys aren't doing what they want to do. It could be a lot worse. We're all going to get better offensively. You figure it's got to turn around. We'll put up numbers when we get that consistency going."
