Dodgers vs Marlins: Latest Betting Odds, Predictions and Picks for August 26

The Dodgers will send All-Star Tyler Anderson to the mound in the series opener in Miami. Los Angeles swept the Marlins at Dodger Stadium last weekend, part of a 5-1 homestand that also saw them win a series over the Brewers.

As of 10 am Pacific time, less than six hours before game time, the Marlins still have not announced who their starter will be. Anderson is 13-2 with a 2.73 ERA, so whoever Miami sends to the mound, the Dodgers are the favorites in this one. Anderson allowed one run in seven innings pitched against the Marlins last Friday in L.A.
