Will Rodgers Sports HandicapperI won my last two MLB playoff picks and am going for three straight on Friday in Game 1 of the World Series! I had a sparkling run down the stretch (in the regular season), and look to finish in the same fashion in the postseason. Hop on board now!

Milwaukee Brewers at Los Angeles Dodgers Prediction

Heading into Wednesday’s matchup between Milwaukee and Los Angeles, the Dodgers are the heavy favorite on the moneyline. Even though Milwaukee beat the Dodgers last week with Andrew Heaney on the mound, I expect the LA offense to have another big outing. Adrian Houser comes off the injured list for Milwaukee but wasn’t particularly effective before his injury. I like Los Angeles on the runline.
