Los Angeles is 6-3 in their last 9 interleague road games and 40-15 in their last 55 Saturday games. The over is 6-1 in Los Angeles’ last 7 games. Tampa Bay is 41-11 in their last 52 interleague home games and 1-5 in their last 6 game two’s of a series. The over is 8-0 in Tampa Bay’s last 8 home games. The over is 10-2 in these two teams last 12 head to head meetings.


Tampa Bay comes into this game playing very well and is coming off of a nice 9-3 win on Friday night. Los Angeles had a nice series win in Atlanta prior to this series and will look to bounce back from their Game 1 loss here. LA is starting Clayton Kershaw, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three of his last five starts. Tampa Bay is starting Tyler Glasnow, who is coming off of the IL for his first start of the year. I am going to take the Dodgers in this game, as I think it will take Glasnow a few starts to get back into a rhythm.
