Los Angeles Dodgers DFS SPIN

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters late Tuesday that tests showed no fractures or structural damage in Cody Bellinger's left leg. Bellinger did not play on Tuesday night after taking a spike to the high-ankle/lower-calf area in Monday's series opener against the Athletics, but it sounds like he has avoided a serious injury. That said, Roberts noted that he's unsure when Bellinger will play next and that an IL stint has not been ruled out due to lingering soreness. He'll be unavailable Wednesday versus Oakland and more should be known following the team's off day on Thursday.

Oakland A’s DFS SPIN

Ramon Laureano went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a stolen base on Tuesday in his return to the Athletics’ starting lineup. Laureano smacked an RBI double off Dodgers’ starter Clayton Kershaw in the opening frame. He also singled and swiped second base against reliever Kenley Jansen in the ninth inning. The 26-year-old outfielder missed a couple games after jamming his shoulder in the team’s season-opening series, but appears to be back at full strength now.

Dodgers vs. A’s Betting Prediction

The under is 11-5-1 in the last 17 meetings between these two teams and is 8-2-1 in the last 11 meetings in Oakland. The under is also 22-8-1 in the A’s last 31 interleague home games, is 10-4-1 in their last 15 interleague games overall and 20-8 in their last 28 interleague games versus a right-handed starter.

MLB BETTING PREDICTION: DODGERS/A’S UNDER 8.5
