Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers have the best record in the National League. Cody Bellinger has seen his average slip below .400 but he is still having an MVP calibre year leading the club in all of the Triple Crown categories. The rest of the lineup might be underperforming with the likes of Corey Seager not having especially good seasons. Bellinger will cool and it will be on others to pick up their production.
There was a lot of Walker Buehler hype coming into the season and it was more than justified. In 2019 he has been just OK, he is 4-1 but his peripherals are not as good as they were a year ago. What that means long term is still to be determined. Even though they have a gaudy record the bullpen has not been great this season. Closer Kenley Jansen has been hittable and other have underwhelmed.
Pittsburgh is hanging around in the NL Central. Odds are they are not going to be able to keep up with the established contenders and they probably have more wins then their supporting stats would normally yield. Josh Bell continues to swing a hot bat, hitting his 15th homer of the season on Wednesday. The lineup does not have much power beyond him though.
The slot behind Jordan Lyles has been filled with a couple of different guys of late. First it was Steve Brault and more recently Montana Durapau (not made up) who was hit hard in an opener kind of situation. Injuries to Jameson Taillon and Trevor Williams really killed their depth. I wonder how long before they look to stretch out Francisco Liriano, even though he has been really good in the pen. The bullpen is very solid.

Fading the Dodgers is not a great strategy this season. They are only one game over .500 on the road though.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Dodgers RL
I like the spunky Bucs bit without knowing who takes the hill it is hard to have much confidence in them in this spot.
