Following Monday night’s rainout, the Los Angeles Dodgers will take on the Chicago Cubs in a Tuesday doubleheader.

The first of today’s Dodgers vs. Cubs matchups pits Clayton Kershaw against Kyle Hendricks in a game that is scheduled for seven innings, hence the 5.5-run over/under.

Kershaw is off to a stellar start this season, while Hendricks has been downright dreadful, as evidenced by a 7.54 ERA through four starts.

So, what is the smartest way to bet Dodgers vs. Cubs on Tuesday afternoon?

Should bettors expect a gem from Kershaw to keep this under the total in what will likely be just a seven-inning game? Or, will the Dodgers’ bats rock a shaky Hendricks to the over?

Thanks to our MLB PRO Projections, we know where the value lies in this matchup.
