LA Dodgers vs New York Yankees Prediction 

The Dodgers were able to win game one of this series in extra innings on Friday night, and they are 19-13 on the road this year. New York is 21-9 at home this season and that loss on Friday snapped an eight game winning streak. Both of these teams are very good offensively and I doubt we are going to see another lower scoring game here. I know we have two starting pitchers that are very hot this season, but I expect these offenses to get back on track. My LA Dodgers vs New York Yankees prediction is for this game to go over the total.
