Will the Los Angeles Dodgers fend off the Oakland Athletics when the two meet up tonight at 10:10PM ET?


(979) Oakland Athletics at (980) Los Angeles Dodgers

Wednesday, April 11, 2018

Location: Dodger Stadium – Los Angeles, California

Weather: Partly Cloudy, 62 degrees, 5mph Winds

Time: 10:10PM ET


According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Dodgers are favored at home today, as they are getting odds of -185 to win. The Athletics are listed with a money line of +165 to prevail. The over/under total is currently listed at 7.5 runs.


The pitching matchup for today’s game has Daniel Mengden on the mound for the Athletics to face Alex Wood of the Dodgers. Mengden has lost both his starts, allowing eight earned runs over 11 innings with seven strikeouts and two walks. Wood is 0-1 through two starts despite having a 1.93 ERA. He has given up just three runs over 14 innings with 10 strikeouts and no walks.

The public is backing the Dodgers today. Los Angeles is getting 65 percent of the wagers for this game as the favorite at home against the Athletics.


Los Angeles third baseman Justin Turner is listed on the injury report for the Dodgers. He is on the 10-day DL due to a fracture in his wrist. He is probable to play Tuesday after he will be activated from the 10-day DL. Oakland’s Chad Pinder and outfielder Boog Powell are both out after being placed on the 10-day DL.


Los Angeles won the first game in this series on Tuesday night, 4-0. Hyun-Jin Ryu threw six innings and allowed just one hit with eight strikeouts to earn the win for the Dodgers on Tuesday. The bullpen pitched three innings of scoreless ball as well. Despite having just four runs, the Dodgers had three home runs. Chris Taylor, Corey Seager and Matt Kemp each had home runs in the win.

Sean Manaea pitched five innings for Oakland and allowed two runs on seven hits with five strikeouts. He fell to 1-2 on the mound this season. Khris Davis was the lone player to get multiple hits for the Athletics.

Alex Wood has been really strong in his two starts. He hasn’t walked a batter and that will go a long way in producing good results. Mengden hasn’t had the same results in terms of keeping runners off the bases. I expect Wood to look strong again and lead the Dodgers to the victory.
