LOS ANGELES, CA (ATS Consultants) –
Two clubs pushing for a postseason berth in their respective leagues will square off tonight in L.A. when the Dodgers host the Red Sox at 10:10PM ET.

ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Dodgers are -109 money line favorites over the Red Sox, who are +101 on the ML. The total, meanwhile, is currently sitting at 7.5 with John Lackey set to face Ricky Nolasco in the pitching matchup.

LINE MOVEMENT: The Red Sox opened as +111 money line underdogs but their odds have dipped to +101, while the Dodgers’ odds have gone from -120 down to -109.

PUBLIC BETTING: Of the current wagers placed on tonight’s game, 75% of the betting public currently favors Los Angeles. This information is subject to change, however, so make sure you click on the link provided for the most updated numbers.

MLB FREE PICK: Take Los Angeles. According to latest MLB trends, Boston is 1-4 in Lackey's last 5 starts as an underdog and 1-4 last 5 as a road dog. LA Dodgers are 5-0 last 5 home games vs. a right-handed starter, 19-7 last 26 at home and 5-1 in Nolasco's last 6 starts.

The Dodgers went from one of the league's biggest disappointments to pushing for the league's best record. Ricky Nolasco (9-9, 3.60 ERA) goes to the mound for the Dodgers. He has a 2.98 ERA sine joining the Dodgers from Miami and is 3-0 with a 2.82 ERA in August. John Lackey (8-10, 3.22 ERA) takes the hill for the Red Sox. Even though he's had a bounce-back season, he is 1-4 with a 4.35 ERA since the All-Star break. The Dodgers are 28-5 since the All-Star break and Boston is 17-17 in their last 34 games. The Red Sox are just trying to hold on to first place, while the Dodgers continue to extend their lead. Expect that to continue with Nolasco on the mound and David Ortiz (back) not at 100 percent.

FRIDAY MLB FREE PICK: LOS ANGELES DODGERS -109
