The Dodgers are the better team and have been playing very good at home. I feel like they will be able to get this win.
The Dodgers should feel great when Buehler takes the mound. He has not lost in 23 straight starts. I think he will be able to pitch better than Zach Davies and lead his team to a win.
My pick is Dodgers on the run line.
