Betting on Los Angeles Dodgers

Dodgers vs Rays Predictions Picks Betting Odds

The Dodgers have been steadily improving this season, currently holding the top spot in the National League West division. However, their recent on the road games have been tough, losing five out of nine games played so far. Luckily, this is their last game away before returning to their stadium.

Their latest game on the road was a 6-5 victory against Tampa Bay, but it was not an easy win. The Dodgers had to fight hard as the Rays mounted a rally in the last inning, almost tying the game. Nonetheless, the Dodgers persevered and secured the victory.

That result also means that the Los Angeles team has scored at least five runs in seven of the nine games they have played in their current road trip, helping them become the third team with the best average runs per game in MLB (5.4).

No doubt they will need to maintain that average, as their scheduled starter for this match is Gavin Stone, who has allowed a total of nine runs over 8.0 innings in his two starts in this Major League Baseball season.

Starting pitcher: Gavin Stone (0-0, 10.13 ERA).

Betting on the Tampa Bay Rays

Few saw it coming at the beginning of the season, but the Tampa Bay Rays are currently the best team in Major League Baseball. With a record of 38-16, they are dominating a tough division like the AL East, holding a four-game lead over their closest rival.

The Rays have finally managed to combine their outstanding pitching, which they have shown in recent years, with a competent offense. To put it mildly, Tampa Bay’s lineup is first in the MLB in all important offensive statistics such as AVG (.271), OBP (.347), SLG (.501), home runs hit (99) and stolen bases (66).

Yesterday’s loss was preceded by a three-game winning streak, which they will try to resume this time around with starter Josh Flemming, who has had quality starts in his last two appearances, allowing two or fewer runs in a total of 11.0 innings overall against Toronto and the Mets.

Starting pitcher: Taj Bradley (3-1, 4.44 ERA).

The Dodgers managed to escape unscathed from Tropicana Field yesterday, but repeating that feat seems extremely complicated, as Stone offers no guarantees against an elite offense like Tampa’s if we look at the team’s previous performances.

The Rays have scored at least five runs in five of their last six appearances in front of their fanbase and will have a chance to do it again, plus they will also have a Flemming who won’t allow the Dodgers many easy outs.

It appears that this game will be a battle of fire against fire, but with a record of 25-6 at home and a slightly more settled starter, the Tampa Bay Rays will likely come out with a positive result.

Prediction: Tampa Bay Runline and Over (LAD 4-7 TB).
