Dodgers vs. Astros, 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN

Moneyline pick: Dodgers -143

The Dodgers have won eight consecutive games with a 9-2 victory over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night. Over the duration of their win streak, Los Angeles is averaging 5.87 runs per game, which is reminding us of how good this team is when it’s clicking on all cylinders.

The Dodgers will try and should be able to win their fifth straight series with Bauer on the mound. The former NL Cy Young award winner looks like he wants to win the award again with his incredible start to the season. Bauer is 5-2 with an ERA of 1.98 and 88 strikeouts in 10 starts. The 30-year-old starter should be able to flourish against this Astros’ offense that is only producing 4.2 runs per game. In seven starts this season, Bauer has a record of 2-2 and an ERA of 2.47, which is tremendous by all accounts.

When you add those factors in plus Bauer being a perfect 8-0, and possessing a 2.90 ERA in nine career starts against Houston, this should be another win for LA. And not too mention, we are getting good value on the ML for the Dodgers, which doesn’t happen often.
