Marlins vs Dodgers Prediction

Our prediction for the Dodgers vs. Marlins game is to take the over, with the line sitting at 8 runs. We have the Dodgers winning this one 5-4, meaning there is a bit of wiggle room on the over/under line, and we would even consider taking the over at 8.5.

Looking at the starting pitchers, our projections have Edward Cabrera finishing with six strikeouts compared to Yoshinobu Yamamoto at six as well. However, we have Yamamoto going just five innings, which is why we would avoid the Dodgers on the run line.

As for the money line, the payout for a Dodgers win is not great at -335, and with our projections having this as a one-run game, we would stay away from the money line.
