BREAKDOWN:

⚾ The Dodgers have a slight edge in pitching & hitting. I believe the Dodgers will win this game and after checking the line I’m surprised it’s just at -125. Line opened at +100 which would have been a steal but I still like the Dodgers to win.  

🔮 My guess at the ML number before looking -155 | Live Line is -125.
