MLB Betting Picks – Los Angeles Dodgers at Houston Astros

MLB Betting Picks – Los Angeles Dodgers at Houston Astros

After the first weekend of the 2020 MLB season we’ve learned absolutely nothing. Every team has at least one win and one loss, and all are all still alive in the playoff picture. Two teams that have a good chance of playing well into the postseason renew acquaintances on Tuesday when the Los Angeles Dodgers visit the Houston Astros. This is the first meeting between the clubs since the infamous sign-stealing scandal became public. The Dodgers might have a score to settle, but they’d rather win the game after dropping the last two at home to the lowly Giants. Young phenom Walker Buehler gets the nod for the Dodgers opposed by southpaw Framber Valdez in the first of a quick two-game series.
