Sports Betting Odds & Free MLB Predictions: Los Angeles Dodgers vs Detroit Tigers

Dodgers: 85-34 (34-20 V)
Tigers: 53-67 (29-28 H)
When: 4:05 PM ET, Saturday, August 19, 2017
Where: Comerica Park, Detroit, Michigan
TV: Fox Sports 1, SportsNet Los Angeles, FSN Detroit

The red-hot Los Angeles Dodgers will look to maintain their ruthless winning pace as they get set to resume hostilities in their three-game interleague series against the Detroit Tigers with Game two set to be staged Saturday afternoon at Comerica Park in Detroit. The two clubs hadn’t met since 2014 when LA arrived in town on Friday.

The Dodgers continued their torrid play on Friday night when they took the opener 8-5 for their fifth consecutive victory. There are no ways to stop this team who has gone 24-5 since the All-Star break. Every day, a different player takes over the game for the Dodgers and last night was no different with SS Chris Taylor going 4 for 5 with 2 RBI on the night.

The Dodgers are a ridiculous 19 games in front of a Colorado squad which is 14 games over the break-even point. They still need to win 31 of their last 42 games to break the major league record of 116 wins. Detroit, who are riding on a four-game losing streak, will look to play the spoiler role as their postseason hopes have clearly vanished.

LH Hyun-Jin Ryu (4-6, 3.63 ERA) looks to get back in the win column as the takes the mound for the Dodgers while RH Michael Fulmer (10-10, 3.78 ERA) attempts to snap a 4-game losing streak as he gets the nod for the Tigers.

Ryu didn’t factor in the decision in his last trip to the mound in which he allowed three runs on seven hits in five innings in the Dodgers’ 6-3 win over San Diego last Sunday. The 30-year old was perfect in his two previous starts throwing 14 scoreless innings on just 6 hits and a walk. Ryu was roughed up in his lone-career start in Detroit when he yielded a career-high 7 runs across 10 hits in 2 1/3 innings back in July of 2014.

Fulmer is going through a rough patch losing his last four games while maintaining a lofty 7.89 ERA during that stretch. The 24-year old has allowed 5 or more runs in three games over that losing span. He yielded five runs across seven hits in five innings against the Texas Rangers in a 6-2 loss last Monday. Last year’s AL rookie of the year will face the Dodgers for the first time in his career.

Mybookie Sportsbook has the Dodgers favorites at 160-moneyline with the total sitting at 10½.
