The Dodgers and Guardians are back at it tonight in Los Angeles for the second game of their series. Julio Urias gets the start coming off of a really good bounceback performance against the Giants. After allowing two solo shots to start the game, Julio shut them down for 5 innings and struck out 10 batters.
He will go up against Cleveland’s Cal Quantrill, who is coming off of his own brilliant performance against the A’s. He pitched 6 innings and allowed 1 run while punching out 4 in the win. The Dodgers might have a tough time against him, given that he often goes to the hard stuff to get outs.
The Guardians will also be looking to jump on Julio early, as Dodgers fans know the first inning has been bad for him at times in his career. They’re coming off of a win last night that featured little offense from both teams, so look for them to try to get to him quickly.
- Guardians ML Odds: +215
- Dodgers ML Odds: -238
- Over/Under: 8 (-110 / +100)
Predictions: Again, the Dodgers are heavily favored in this one. And again, it’s hard to put any faith in their offense at the moment. They should have crushed Plesac on Friday night and put up a ton of runs. They did not.
Take the Guardians again in this one, because those odds are too good to pass up for a team as hot as this.
Over or Under? The oddsmakers seem to think this one has a chance at being a barnburner. But with the way the Dodgers offense has played lately, it’s difficult to imagine them breaking 8 runs between the 2 teams. Take that +100 under if you can still get it.
