Pittsburgh is 16-40 in their last 56 Monday games and 2-8 in their last 10 game one’s of a series. The under is 3-0-1 in Pittsburgh’s last 4 Monday games. Los Angeles is 43-10 in their last 53 home games and 8-2 in their last 10 Monday games. The under is 7-3 in Los Angeles’ last 10 Monday games. The under is 4-1-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

On paper, this game looks like a complete mismatch in favor of the Dodgers. Los Angeles is at home, has their ace on the mound, and is going up against a team that has struggled this season. I am taking the Dodgers to win by 1.5, but would also look at taking an alternative line at -2.5.
