The Los Angeles Dodgers will play the Miami Marlins in Game 1 of their series at loanDepot Park on Friday night.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are 86-37 this season and have won five of their last six games. Los Angeles is coming off of a series win against Milwaukee, where they won two out of the three games played in the series. The Los Angeles pitching staff has a 2.85 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP, and a .211 opponent batting average this season. The Dodgers offense has scored 664 runs with a .262 batting average and a .338 on base percentage. Mookie Betts is batting .273 with 27 home runs and 62 RBI’s for the Dodgers this season. The projected starter for Los Angeles is Tyler Anderson, who is 13-2 with a 2.73 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP over 135.1 innings pitched this season.

The Miami Marlins are 54-70 this season and have lost five of their last seven games. Miami is coming off of a series win against Oakland, where they won two out of the three games played. The Miami pitching staff has a 3.83 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, and a .239 opponent batting average. The Marlins offense has scored 454 runs with a .231 batting average and a .296 on base percentage this year. Jesus Aguilar is batting .236 with 15 home runs and 49 RBI’s for the Marlins this season. The projected starter for Miami is Trevor Rogers, who is 4-10 with a 5.85 ERA and a 1.60 WHIP over 87.2 innings pitched this season.

Los Angeles comes into this game playing very well in recent games and has a 19.5 game lead in the NL West. The Dodgers will start Tyler Anderson, who has 13 wins on the season and has allowed for runs over his last 20 innings pitched. The starting pitcher for Miami is up in the air, but it looks like it is going to be Trevor Rogers, who has allowed 10 runs over his last 9.2 innings of work. The Dodgers are the much better team in this matchup, but they will have to deal with playing all the way on the other side of the country. I do not think that will matter and am taking the Dodgers to win by two runs.
