Dodgers Look to Cap Sweep of Tigers as Road Faves

Three runs were enough for the Dodgers on Saturday to improve their MLB-best record to 87-34 – a staggering 53 games above .500. Sunday’s matchup offers the Dodgers an opportunity to sweep the Tigers at the AL Central club’s home park and they’ll be serious favorites when the first pitch is thrown this afternoon.

SHARK BITES
  • The Dodgers are 6-0 SU and on the runline in their last 6 games as road favorites.
  • The Tigers are 0-6 SU and on the runline in their last 6 games overall.
  • The total has gone OVER in 7 of the Tigers’ last 9 games during which they’re 1-8 SU.

LA is on a roll right now and they’ll call upon Kenta Maeda (11-4, 3.71 ERA) in an attempt to keep the ball moving in the right direction. The Japanese international has had a bit of a tumultuous season but in his five starts since becoming a permanent fixture in the Dodgers rotation, the sophomore major leaguer has a record of 4-0 and an ERA under two.

Winners of just two of their last 14 games, the Tigers are on whatever the opposite of a roll is. Justin Verlander (8-8, 4.11) will do his best to help his team stop the skid but if the bats stay quiet for Detroit, there’s only so much he can do.

All things considered, you’re getting great value on the Dodgers at their opening moneyline of -134.
