The Los Angeles Dodgers are going to be favored at home because they're the Dodgers, but their offense is not playing well and they're fresh off a late game last night where they blew a massive lead late. The Dodgers could be a frustrated team that isn't in the mood to be at the park right now. The Cincinnati Reds have their struggles as well, but things have to turn around eventually and Tyler Mahle has been good this year, allowing four earned runs through 20.2 innings. I'll take a shot with the Reds and plus money.
