Game time: 04/29/2022 at 10:10 PM EDT
Bet on the Los Angeles Dodgers at -1.5
On paper, the Dodgers are a much better team than Detroit giving a very unattractive moneyline. In addition, they have been the favorite in 18 games this season and won 66.7 percent of the time. The Tigers are struggling and a trip to Los Angeles will not help them recover at all.
The Dodgers are a strong home favorite and fresh from an off day. Therefore, we predict the Los Angeles Dodgers will cover the spread with a final score of 6-2.
