Dodgers' Strong Bullpen and Offense Make Them Favorite in Showdown with Tigers

The Los Angeles Dodgers will host the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night in one of the final matchups of the 2020 regular season. The two teams come into this showdown with very different outlooks - while the Dodgers have already clinched the division title, the Tigers are trying to make up an 8-game deficit in their run for the playoffs. When they faced off last season, in their first meeting since 2017, the Dodgers swept the series. Matthew Boyd (ERA: 4.5) will be starting for the Tigers and Ryan Pepiot (ERA: 2.0) will be starting for the Dodgers. Los Angeles is the betting favorite with an opening line of -240 that has not moved.
