Astros at Dodgers picks and predictions


Dodgers 6 Astros 3


The Dodgers’ pitching has shown up the last 3 games with 2 shutouts allowing only 2 runs in that span. Miller’s last outing was bad but he had previously only allowed 2 total runs in his 1st 4 career starts.

The Astros are 19-16 on the road this season but have lost 6 of their last 7 road games.

The Dodgers are 23-14 at home.

But betting the Dodgers on the moneyline doesn’t get you the value the run line does especially with the Dodgers’ track record when they win games.


Run line/Against the spread

The Dodgers when they win usually do by multiple runs. Of their 42 wins 34 have been by at least 2 runs.

Five of the Astros’ last 7 losses have been by at least 2 runs.

BET DODGERS -1.5 (+110).


Eight of the Dodgers’ last 12 games have had 9 or more total runs although the last 3 contests have had 5 or fewer.

Four of the Astros’ last 6 games have had 9 or more total runs.

The Over is 4-0 in the Astros’ last 4 Saturday games and 4-0-1 in the Dodgers’ last 5 Saturday contests.

BET OVER 8.5 (-120).
