Ryan is 8-4 with a 3.67 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP on the season, skewed by the 10 earned runs allowed on that rough night in San Diego.

Julio Urias pitched six scoreless innings in Los Angeles's 3-0 road win over the San Francisco Giants last Wednesday night to earn his fourth straight win. Urias is now 11-6 with a 2.57 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP in 2022, and the Dodgers are a perfect 9-0 SU in his last nine starts.

Minnesota Hasn't Shown Much Bite As Underdog Recently

The Twins fell to 5-7 SU over their last 12 games with a 3-2 loss at home to the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday. Minnesota closed as a +155 underdog in that game and is now 17-26 SU as an underdog this season, including a current stretch of 2-9 SU in its last 11 games as a dog.

Despite going just 10-14 SU over their last 24 games, the Twins still hold a one-game lead over the Cleveland Indians atop the AL Central standings. Bettors taking Minnesota as their Twins vs Dodgers prediction will be hoping that the Twins can end their recent struggles as an underdog in style.

Los Angeles In Top Form With Playoffs Approaching

Tyler Anderson pitched seven shutout innings and Cody Bellinger hit two home runs in the Dodgers' 4-0 win over San Diego on Sunday. That victory completed a dominant sweep over the Padres in which the Dodgers outscored their division rivals 20-4 and extended the team's current win streak to eight games.

Los Angeles has made it look easy over this 8-0 SU run with an average margin of victory of 4.38 runs per game. The question lately hasn't been whether or not the Dodgers will win, but instead just how much they'll win by.

Twins vs Dodgers Pick & Insights

Twins: Keys to Victory

Joe Ryan has been outstanding since the start of July with the exception of one awful start, allowing one earned run or less in four of his last six outings. He's got a daunting task ahead of him trying to slow down this red-hot Dodgers offense, but he'll need to do just that to put Minnesota in a position to win as a Twins vs Dodgers prediction.

Dodgers: Keys to Victory

Julio Urias has allowed two earned runs or less in nine of his last 11 starts. There's no reason to believe that his dominance won't continue on Tuesday, which should set the bar pretty low for the number of runs Los Angeles needs to score to be the winning Twins vs Dodgers pick as big favorites.
