The Detroit Tigers and the Los Angeles Dodgers will play the 2nd game of the series at the Dodger Stadium on Saturday night. The Dodgers beat the Tigers 5-1 on Friday night. Justin Turner and Chris Taylor each hit their first home runs of the season.

Detroit Tigers

The Tigers get here with a 6-13 record and have lost 6 straight games. The team is averaging 3.11 runs per game and allowing 4.21 runs. Robbie Grossman is batting for .306 AVG and Spencer Torkelson leads with 3 home runs and 8 RBI.

Tarik Skubal leads the pitching staff and has 1 win recorded with a 3.05 ERA and 20 strikeouts so far. 

Probable Pitcher:

Beau Brieske (0-1, 5.40 ERA) will be on the mound for the Tigers in the 2nd game of the series. Brieske's first major-league game start came in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies, and he allowed three runs on three hits and two walks while striking out three in five innings to take the loss.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers get here with a 13-6 and currently 7-1 at home this season. The team is #1 in offense averaging 5 runs per game and #1 in defense allowing 2.47 runs. Freddie Freeman is batting for .311 AVG. Cody Bellinger leads with 4 home runs and Trea Turner has 17 RBI.

Tyler Anderson (2-0) earned the win for the Dodgers, allowing one earned run on five hits in five innings. He struck out three and walked one.

Probable Pitcher: 

Clayton Kershaw (3-0, 2.65 ERA) will take the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Dodgers. Kershaw got the win against San Diego on Sunday, allowing one run on four hits with three strikeouts in five innings. He has only 2 starts against the Tigers in his career and has a 0.00 ERA across 13 innings pitched.


Detroit are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games.

Detroit are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of LA Dodgers' last 5 games against Detroit.

LA Dodgers are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games at home.


The Tigers continue to be one of the worst offenses in the league and are averaging 3.11 runs per game. On the other side the Dodgers offense continue to respond and are averaging 5 runs per game while allowing just 2.56 runs, the #1 in the MLB. I won in the first of the series with Dodgers -1.5 and I'm playing the same for the next two.

PICK: Dodgers -1.5 (-160)
