An Interleague weekend series will take place in the City of Angels when the Detroit Tigers travel cross country to take on the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Justin Turner and Chris Taylor each hit their first home runs of the season to lead the Dodgers to a 5-1 win over the Tigers on Friday night.
After winning an early game on Saturday 13-0 over the Colorado Rockies, where Miguel Cabrera reached the milestone of 3,000 hits, the Tigers dropped the second game of that doubleheader 3-2 and lost again 6-2 to Colorado on Sunday.
The overall record is not impressive, but nobody in the AL Central has been great in the early going, as the Tigers are tied for third place 1.5 games behind the Dodgers.
The Tigers are 25th in MLB with 53 runs scored, 12th with a .316 on-base percentage, and 29th with just 7 home runs.
Rookie Spencer Torkelson leads the club with 3 home runs, and Austin Meadows leads the team with a .333 batting average, and 9 RBI. At 39 years old, Miguel Cabrera is batting .319 with 5 RBI but has not homered yet this season.
Detroit’s pitching staff is eighth with a 3.22 ERA. Eduardo Rodriguez (0-1, 5.27 ERA, 1.39 WHIP) will make his fourth start of the season. Rodriguez is 4-1 with a 3.21 ERA in seven career starts against the Dodgers.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Another baseball season has arrived and the Dodgers are once again out to a hot start, sitting at 12-6 and half a game back from the Giants atop the NL West.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been a solid offensive team as advertised as they are seventh in MLB with a .725 OPS and only getting on at a .331 clip as a team so far.
A big reason for their offensive success has been the play of new first baseman Freddie Freeman as he is 10-for-27 with two homers and seven RBI with seven runs scored and a 1.049 OPS.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Tigers are 3-4 ATS on the road
- Tigers O/U are 2-5 on the road
- Dodgers are 7-1 ATS at home
- Dodgers O/U are 3-5 at home
Detroit Tigers vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
The Tigers are struggling mightily right now, losers of five straight games coming into a tough series at the Dodgers.
Los Angeles has the best pitching rotation in baseball with a combined ERA of 2.21. Meanwhile, Detroit is in the middle of the pack with the 13th best team ERA of 3.41.
There is also a big difference in game changing power as the Dodgers have hit 18 home runs this season while the Tigers have only hit 8, good for last in the MLB.
Between pitching and power hitting the Dodgers have the major upper hand and should use that to their advantage at home where they have been great this season.
Take the UNDER on Saturday as I expect the Dodgers to cover but the line has way too much juice to be worth it.
