The Los Angeles Dodgers will be looking for another win as they travel to take on the Tampa Rays this Monday. The Dodgers are currently 31-17 after beating the Reds in their last game. Meanwhile, the Rays are 27-17 after losing to the Yankees in their last contest. Now, both teams will be looking to improve upon their respective record with a win in this game.

Dodgers Look To Get 32nd Win Of Season

The Los Angeles Dodgers entered the 2019 season with hopes of making it back to the World Series and to potentially win the entire thing. According to Vegas oddsmakers, the Dodgers are expected to win 93.5 games which means that this team should end the season in the playoff picture once again. So far this season, the team has looked solid as the Dodgers have won 31 of their first 48 games. However, the team is only 12-11 on the road this season and will be looking to improve upon that record in this game.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are led by first baseman Cody Bellinger who was solid last season. Last season, Bellinger hit 25 home runs along with 76 RBIs as he was able to showcase his skills once again during his second professional season. However, So far this season, Bellinger has looked even better as he currently has a .405 batting average along with a team-leading 17 home runs and 44 RBIs in the team’s first 48 games.

Rays Remain In Second Place

The Tampa Bay Rays entered the 2019 season with hopes of competing for a playoff spot once again. According to Vegas oddsmakers, the Rays were expected to win 84.5 games which means that this team should end the season with a winning record. As the third-best team in the AL East behind the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees, a good start could be crucial for Tampa Bay if the team wants to remain competitive in the division throughout the season. So far this season, the Rays have won 27 of their first 44 games and are just one game back of the Yankees for first place in the division entering this game.

The Tampa Bay Rays are led by outfielder Kevin Kiermaier who struggled last season. Last season, Kiermaier suffered a drop in power as he only hit seven home runs along with 29 RBIs in just 88 games. However, his contributions are more known in the outfield as he is one of the best center fielders in the entire league. So far this season, he has three home runs and 14 RBIs while possessing a disappointing .227 batting average.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Simply put, the Dodgers are significantly better than the Rays. Los Angeles managed to make the World Series last year while the Rays finished well out of the playoff picture. I expect this game to be close but I think the Dodgers will eventually get to Wood as the team wins this game relatively comfortably. Give me the road team in this one.

Prediction: Los Angeles Dodgers

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Since both of these teams possess quality pitching staffs, I have to lean to the under in this game. Furthermore, both teams should struggle against these deep pitching staffs so I think that this total is too high. I can see this game being somewhere in the realm of 4-2 so I will recommend the under in this game.

Prediction: Under
