The Dodgers vs Marlins game might be another walk in the park for the visiting team from Los Angeles. They started the three-game series with a 15-1 blowout. Yesterday, the Dodgers came out swinging once again, beating the home team 9-1. On August 15, they are looking for a sweep. Baseball betting analysts are expecting another high scoring game from LA.
Taking the mound for the final Dodgers vs Marlins series game will be All-Star pitcher Walker Buehler. He just came off a no-decision against Arizona where he threw six shutout innings and struck out eight. In addition, he dominated the Marlins the last time he pitched against them. In fact, no Marlins got a home run from him.
Predictions for 8/15/2019
Pitching for Miami will be Caleb Smith. There are rumors that the Marlins will trade him at the deadline. He had six runs and ten hits in 4.2 innings against the Braves. Also, he hasn’t pitched against the Dodgers this season. In addition, only a couple of Dodgers players have faced him before.
Another factor to consider is the Dodgers’ starting rotation. They are now 8-1 with an ERA of 1.69. Also, they have 85 strikeouts in 74 2/3 innings in August. Third baseman Justin Turner has a home run streak of three games; going for six out of 11 with four runs and six RBIs. Also, LA is 20-6 against NL East teams. They won 14 out of the last 17 games in the conference, which gives them better sports betting odds.
