Dodgers vs Marlins: Latest Betting Odds, Predictions and Picks for August 29

The Dodgers look to win the series in Miami this afternoon in the finale of this four-game series with the Marlins. The Dodgers have won two of the first three games, losing only a nail-biter against Cy Young favorite Sandy Alcantara on Saturday.

The Dodgers will send All-Star Tony Gonsolin to the mound, looking to bring home his 17th win and lower his league-leading 2.10 ERA. Gonsolin has allowed just two earned runs in 23.2 innings pitched this month.

The Marlins will counter with Pablo Lopez, who started the season very well but has struggled quite a bit lately. Before throwing six shutout innings against Oakland in his last start, Lopez had allowed 20 earned runs in 18 innings over his previous four starts. Since the beginning of June, Lopez is 4-6 with a 5.00 ERA.
