Betting odds for this matchup have yet to be released, but given Los Angeles’ strong start and Minnesota’s struggles it seems likely they’d be the moneyline favorites. Bettors should keep tabs on both spread and total odds once available due to Los Angeles’ potent offense and Minnesota’s resilient pitching staff.

James Paxton (1-0 W-L, 0 ERA) vs. Louie Varland (0-1 W-L, 6.75 ERA)

The Dodgers’ James Paxton who has an ERA of 0.0 over 5 innings in this season is proving himself as the guy on the mound who can work the magic. Even though WHIP is a precious bit higher while 5 K is noteworthy in itself, he is a prospect that teams must keep an eye on. Pax’s exposure and calmness will be of key relevance while he tackles a hitter Twins with whom their revenge is not an option. Nevertheless, a high walk rate would mean that he doesn’t fully manage his time on the mound.

Louie Varland, instead of trying to get out of a tough beginning (with a 6.75 ERA and 2 WHIP past 4 innings), is trying to find a way back. With 4 punchouts and 2 walks Varland has proven himself to be able to intimidate hitters but stops them from short outings by a high hit rate. The Twins hope that Bernadina can come up big against the powerful Dodgers lineup and establish the tone for his team.

Dodgers’ Offensive Juggernaut

The Dodgers show up to the game with a team batting average of .295. They backed this up by running 64 runs, 101 hits, and 15 home runs, an impressive number, which can frustrate even the strongest pitching staff. Another strength of their offensive game is displayed by their good on-base percentage (OBP) of .376 and their ability to hit for power (SLG) of .488. We can see therefore that their pitching may be providing runs for the opposing team but their offense has the power to make up.

Twins’ Pitching and Defense

Twin’s offense so far has been limited to the lowest batting average of .209 and only 20 runs scored by the team in the very early stages of the season. The slugging percentage they have is averaging .323, which is not impressive compared with the home runs only 3 of them have hit in the season. On the flip side, their staff does not disappoint, managing to average a 3.63 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. They can stay in the game, having a belief that pitching is going to get them most of the wins they need.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Minnesota Twins Betting Picks

Exploring the offensive strength of the Dodgers against the Twins’ outstanding pitching abilities, we predict that this game will be too close to anticipate the fall of the Dodgers. But, in the long haul, the Twins should bow to the total amount of depth and quality of the Dodgers line-up. The same over markets looks profitable for bettors, given the fact that Dodgers are good at kicking off games with runs and getting Twins in the well-fought contests.

If the moneyline is starting to look reasonable, the least risky option may be the Dodgers as they near game time. The possibility of prop bets placed on total bases and strikeouts for starting pitchers in addition could be a source of income from the difference in styles of play or strategy of each player. For those seeking MLB picks and insight, keep an eye on the evolving odds and consider the Dodgers to come out on top in a high-scoring affair.

Score Prediction: sDodgers 6, Twins 3.
