Los Angeles is 11-5 in their last 16 games following a win and 61-24 in their last 85 Tuesday games. The under is 5-0 in Los Angeles’ last 5 game two’s of a series. Atlanta is 45-15 in their last 60 game two’s of a series and 38-14 in their last 52 Tuesday games. The over is 5-1 in Atlanta’s last 6 Tuesday games. Los Angeles is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.


The Dodgers were able to get the win in Game 1 of this series, but their starting pitching depth is going to be tested in this game. The Dodgers are starting Bobby Miller, who will be making his major league debut. Miller has a 5.65 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP in Triple-A so far this year. Atlanta is starting Spencer Strider, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three of his last five starts. Strider did struggle against the Rangers in his last start and I think he will have more problems here. I like the over in this game.
