How to Bet Guardians-Dodgers

Moneyline: Guardians +225 /Dodgers -275 | Run Line: Guardians +1.5 (+106)/Dodgers -1.5 (-128) | Total: 8 (O-112, U-108)

In addition to traditional bets like the moneyline, run line, and game total, there are several bets offered at FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Dodgers got back into the win column against the Los Angeles Angels but there still hasn’t been a lot to like about their offense of late. Look towards the total tonight, which is set at eight, and consider the under at -108 in what could be a good pitching duel.

Are the Guardians for Real in the AL Central?

Cleveland has been a surprise team so far this season, posting the second-best record in the AL Central and sitting above .500 on the year. There’s a lot to like about this team including their ability to manufacture runs, but they’ll clearly be in a tough spot this weekend against a powerhouse Dodgers team. Plesac hasn’t been as consistent as we’re used to this season, posting a 4.70 ERA, which might not play very well at Dodger Stadium. 

Guardians Projected Lineup:

CF  Steven Kwan 

SS Amed Rosario

3B Jose Ramirez

DH Josh Naylor

RF Oscar Gonzalez

2B Andreas Gimenez

1B Owen Miller

LF Richie Palacios

C Austin Hedges

Will the Dodgers Continue Gaining Momentum vs. Guardians?

The Dodgers struggled to start the month of June, but after getting some good pitching against the Los Angeles Angels, there could be a hot stretch coming on for the World Series favorites. Clayton Kershaw has continued his dominance this year when he’s been healthy, owning a 4-1 record with a 2.12 ERA and 36 strikeouts.
