Miami Marlins vs LA Dodgers Prediction

Edward Cabrera is a talented young pitcher who is more than capable of pitching a gem and giving the Marlins a chance to cash as massive underdogs. The problem is the Marlins as a team are absolutely terrible and not a team I'm excited to back. Cabrera also hasn't been good this season despite the small sample size. The LA Dodgers are putting together a nice week, and they usually win the games they're supposed to win. The Marlins are 4-26 in their last 30 games when underdogs of +250 or more. The Dodgers have won 13 of their last 15 games when favorites of -250 or more. Give me the Dodgers and the RL for max betting value.
