Our Betting Tip for Today
The Cincinnati Reds will be hosting the defending champions after a poor run of form where they lost seven times in ten games. And they're not just hosting an average team; the Dodgers are in fantastic form, as can be seen by their most recent six-game winning streak.
In addition, the Dodgers have returned to the five-man rotation after several months. They currently boast the most efficient rotation in the MLB season. These are teams that are worlds apart in terms of performance. Therefore, we'll tip the Dodgers to make it a seven-game winning streak.
Since the Dodgers have low odds in the Moneyline, the run-line will be the tip for the week. Therefore, we'll tip the Dodgers to make it a seven-game winning streak with -1.5 (run-line).
Our choice: Dodgers win -1.5
So why exactly did we tip the Dodgers for a win with -1.5 on the run-line? Let's highlight some key reasons:
The Dodgers are already on a six-game winning streak.
The Dodgers have won more (9) H2H fixtures in the last 15 games (since March 2019) than the Reds, who've won just four times.
The Reds have lost seven of their last ten games.
Generally, the Reds have not been that great in the offensive this season.
