LA Angels vs LA Dodgers Prediction

I’m on the Dodgers here. The Dodgers have simply owned this rivalry over the last few years, winning 10 straight against the Angels, all by multiple runs. I honestly don’t expect anything different here. The Dodgers are the better team and while Knack has been in and out of the major league rotation, Patrick Sandoval is one of my favorite pitchers to go against because he simply doesn’t get the luck or support that the average pitcher does and he ends up taking the hit more often than not. I think the Dodgers are just the far more potent lineup and in the end, the Dodgers come out on top. Give me the Dodgers.
