The Los Angeles Dodgers will play the Miami Marlins in Game 3 of their series at loanDepot Park on Sunday afternoon.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are 87-38 this season and have won three of their last four games. Los Angeles won Game 1 of this series by a score of 10-6 on Friday night. The Los Angeles pitching staff has a 2.86 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP, and a .211 opponent batting average this season. The Dodgers offense has scored 675 runs with a .263 batting average and a .338 on base percentage. Mookie Betts is batting .278 with 30 home runs and 67 RBI’s for the Dodgers this season. The projected starter for Los Angeles is Julio Urias, who is 13-7 with a 2.36 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP over 133.2 innings pitched this season.

The Miami Marlins are 55-71 this season and have won three of their last five games. Miami won Game 2 of this series by a score of 2-1 on Saturday. The Miami pitching staff has a 3.84 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, and a .240 opponent batting average. The Marlins offense has scored 462 runs with a .231 batting average and a .296 on base percentage this year. Miguel Rojas is batting .232 with six home runs and 31 RBI’s for the Marlins this season. The projected starter for Miami is Edward Cabrera, who is 4-1 with a 1.41 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP over 38.1 innings pitched this season.

Los Angeles is 5-1 in their last 6 games against the NL East and 42-10 in their last 52 games. The over is 4-2 in Los Angeles’ last 6 games. Miami is 8-19 in their last 27 games and 0-4 in their last 4 game three’s of a series. The under is 8-2-2 in Miami’s last 12 home games. Los Angeles is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

Miami was able to quiet the Los Angeles bats on Saturday and came away with the 2-1 win. Miami will follow that performance up with Edward Cabrera, who hasn’t allowed a run in his last four starts. Los Angeles will start Julio Urias, who has allowed two or fewer runs in five straight starts. I think we are in for another low scoring game here with these two pitchers on the mound. I am taking the under.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
