LA Dodgers vs LA Angels Prediction

I’m not running to the window to lay a -200 price with Landon Knack and his small sample size, but this has more to do with fading the Angels than anything else. The Angels aren’t good and cant string together offense. The Dodgers are comfortably the more talented team, and they’re going up against Patrick Sandoval. A pitcher with an ERA over 5 and a 1.50 WHIP, the Dodgers should be excited about this matchup. Give me the Dodgers and the RL for max betting value in game 1 against the Angels.
