The Pirates are dealing with serious issues in their rotation with Jameson Taillon and Trevor Williams on the injured list while Chris Archer is struggling. Ryu has been on fire with 31 consecutive scoreless innings entering this contest on the books. The Dodgers have plenty of offensive weapons to support their pitching and with Ryu throwing zeroes, it doesnt take much to put the team in a favorable position. With the Pirates having so many issues on the mound, you have to lean toward Los Angeles and at -175 the only option here is LA -1.5 (-125) on the RL.

The opener strategy didn't quite work for the Pirates last night, as the Dodgers put up five in the first en route to a 10-2 victory. It was the Dodgers' 33rd win of the season, only trailing the Minnesota Twins (wait what?) in that category. Today, the Dodgers look for their fifth win in five games against the Pirates this season, and they have their ace on the mound.
Hyun-Jin Ryu has, arguably, been the best pitcher in baseball this year. Among qualified pitchers, Ryu has the lowest ERA (1.52), third-lowest FIP (2.62) and second-lowest WHIP (0.
Dodger Blue: Dodgers News: Dave Roberts Eyeing Rest For Justin Turner During Pirates Series
It was just over one week ago that Justin Turner set a Los Angeles Dodgers record and tied the overall franchise mark with getting hit by a pitch in four consecutive games. He shook those off but then was the victim of south-inflicted damage on a foul ball.
Turner initially remained in the game against the Cincinnati Reds before swelling in his left shin forced him to an early exit. Turner was out of the lineup the following day but logged a pinch-hit appearance.
He insisted on returning for the series finale, and has started four consecutive games entering play Saturday.
