MLB Odds/Point Spread: Los Angeles Dodgers -202, Total Odds: 9

Nine out of their past ten matches and five last six on the road were victories for the Dodgers. Their last three matches saw them score 20 runs on the road, where they performed well offensively. Because they did a good job batting against right-handers and because Syndergaard was struggling lately, giving up 12 runs in his last three outings, expect them to play well offensively in this game. He struggled to contain the Dodgers in his last three starts against them, giving up eight runs each time.

 

The Guardians dropped three of their last four games at home and four of their previous five games overall. Due to recent offensive struggles, only eight runs were scored in their last three matches. Because Miller recently pitched well for the Dodgers, allowing just three runs in his last three starts, their offensive struggles will persist in this game. In his last four road starts, he allowed six runs and won’t have any issue containing Cleveland’s offense. Los Angeles should cover the money line.
