Dodgers Sending Rookie to the Mound

Bobby Miller will get the start for the Los Angeles Dodgers in this game. Miller will make his first-ever postseason start. The 24-year-old, who played his college ball at Louisville, went 11-4 during the regular season with a 3.76 earned run average.

He made 21 starts this season, with his final one coming on October 1st at the Giants. In that game, he went four innings and allowed just a single hit.

Dodgers Go on the Ropes

The Los Angeles Dodgers could be in trouble. They lost game one and now have to take on the ace of the Diamondbacks staff. The Diamondbacks were more than ready in Game 1, and we expect them to be in Game two as well.

The offense is ready to hit the rookie pitcher and send the series to Arizona with a 2-0 lead. Seeing the Dodgers on the ropes is surprising, but that’s the pick here.

Bet on the Arizona Diamondbacks at +130 to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday in Game 2 of the best-of-five series.
