Tuesday’s starters are heading in different directions as far as their matchup is concerned. Syndergaard is 1-3 with an ERA of 7.88 in his four starts on the road this season. Meanwhile, Gonsolin is 4-0 with an ERA of 1.0 in five home starts this campaign.

The Angels’ pitching staff ranks 17th in the majors with an ERA of 3.92 while the Dodgers’ staff is 3rd best overall with an ERA of 3.06. We’re not even talking about the difference in batting here. The Dodgers rank second in the league in runs scored, 2nd in on-base percentage, and 5th in slugging. Better offense plus having the better starter makes me go with the Dodgers here.

Over/Under Odds: Over 8.5 (-110), Under 8.5 (-110)
Odds from BetOnline as of 06/14/2022

Noah Syndergaard has conceded more than three runs in only two out of his nine starts this season. Tony Gonsolin has even been better as he’s allowed more than three runs only one time this season.

The Dodgers have one of the best offenses in baseball but they have struggled as of late, scoring just 3.17 runs per game in their last six games. The Angels have scored an average of 4.17 runs per game during the same period.

These teams have played to the under ten times in their last 14 meetings at Dodger Stadium. With solid pitching and some struggling scoring, this one should fall in the same category.

Prediction: Under 8.5
