Dodgers Continue Their Seemingly Unstoppable Roll

Can anyone stop the Dodgers? The answer to that question so far has been “Are you kidding me?” Now 52 games above the .500 mark, LA has won five straight as well as eight of 10 and can be found as heavy betting chalk for an interleague matchup with the skidding Detroit Tigers.

SHARK BITES
  • The Tigers are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games as home underdogs.
  • The Dodgers are 5-0 SU and on the runline in their last 5 games as road favorites.
  • The total has gone OVER 8 times in the Tigers’ last 10 games as home underdogs.

It’s starting to feel like a cruel joke the Dodgers are playing on the rest of the teams in Major League Baseball and betting against them right now feels like something of a fool’s errand. They haven’t lost a series in well over two months and they’ve won 23 of their last 26 games overall. That’s good, right?

Where the Tigers might hold an advantage over the World Series favorites is in today’s starting pitching matchup. Michael Fulmer (10-10, 3.78 ERA) will toe the rubber for the Tigers looking to get his season back on track after four consecutive forgettable starts.

If the Tigers want to upset the mighty Doyers, though, they’ll have to get to starter Hyun-Jin Ryu as their odds of winning will drop substantially when he leaves the game. The LA bullpen has a 3.02 ERA on the season and has given up fewer runs than any other relief crew in the majors.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

Baseball betting oddsmakers, including BetOnline, opened the Detroit Tigers as 142 moneyline underdogs in this matchup. OVER/UNDER total bettors saw the number open at 10 at shops such as Bovada.
