Cubs vs. Prediction Dodgers: Picks, odds, live stream, TV channels, start time on Saturday, 9th July

The Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers will play Saturday with the first throw set at 10:10 p.m. ET. The game takes place at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles and will only be available on local TV or via an MLB.tv subscription. The Cubs sent Marcus Stroman (2-5, 5.32 ERA) to the mound to try to compete with Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw (5-2, 2.57 ERA).

The Cubs have had a rough comeback in the last two games having won the previous four series going into this set. Chicago have been able to keep their distance, but this may be the game that really eludes them. The Cubs haven’t been able to get to Kershaw of late, and the LA offense will eventually break out.

The Dodgers have been on a tear this season, really heating up in the last 10 games with a 9-1 record. LA now has Mookie Betts back from injury as well, so this offense will eventually start to click again. Kershaw has been brilliant as ever, and will be hoping to create chances in the four-game sweep.

Money line opportunities: Cubs +210, Dodgers -250

Moneyline Options: Dodgers -250

The fight isn’t profitable enough to take on the Cubs. Chicago has been close through two games but this is the only possibility to escape them. Stroman is too inconsistent to believe against Kershaw at home.

Player prop options: Clayton Kershaw records over 16.5 outs (-125)

There is some risk here as Kershaw has not gone past 5.2 innings in three of his last five starts. However, he was dominant against the Padres and threw in seven closing innings against the Cubs earlier this season. Back him to go through at least 5.2 innings here.
