Los Angeles Angels vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
It was very impressive that the Angels beat the Dodgers without Trout, Ohtani, and Rendon on Friday. I do not see that happening again on Sunday, however.
Los Angeles is the better team and I have a hard time believing they will lose 2 games in this series. I look for them to be sharp on Sunday.
The Dodgers have a clear pitching advantage. Buehler is one of the best in baseball and Detmers has only made one start. I look for the Dodgers to hit the rookie well and for Buehler to keep up his good pitching.
I will play the Dodgers on the run line in this one.
