Dodgers rolling

Los Angeles is coming off an 8-3 win at Cincinnati on Sunday. The Dodgers have won five of their last six games coming into today. Los Angeles is 31-17 on the season, 12-11 on the road and 23-23 with the over/under total. Clayton Kershaw will be on the mound for the Dodgers tonight. He is 3-0 on the season with a 3.40 ERA.

The Dodgers are strong on the mound, as they have a 3.42 ERA as a team and a 1.07 WHIP. At the plate, Los Angeles is averaging 5.19 runs per game while hitting .253 as a team. Cody Bellinger is leading the team with 10 doubles, 17 home runs and 44 RBI. Joc Pederson is adding 14 home runs and 23 RBI.

Rays fall to Yankees

Tampa suffered a series loss in New York this weekend, but they have still won three of their last five coming into this home series. The Rays are 27-17 on the season, 12-10 at home and 24-18 with the under. Hunter Wood will be getting the start for Tampa tonight. He is 1-0 on the season with a 0.00 ERA.

The Rays have the top pitching staff in the league. Their team ERA is 2.98, while their team WHIP is 1.09. At the plate, the Rays are averaging just 4.43 runs per game while hitting .251 as a team.

MLB Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Dodgers are 1-4 in their last five interleague games, but they have won four straight against winning teams.

Tampa

The Rays are 5-1 in their last six interleague games and 11 of their last 14 series openers.

Prediction:

Wood is a relief starter and he has not given up an earned run over 7.1 innings this season. He has seven strikeouts with just one walk. Kershaw has been very steady, but has given up multiple runs in five of his six starts. I think Tampa’s stacked bullpen will be able to get through this tough Los Angeles lineup. Make the trip out East should give the Rays some problems for tonight’s series opener.

MLB Prediction: Tampa Bay Rays +125
