The Cleveland Guardians will gear up for game three against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday at 4:10 pm EST. This will be the series finale of the series and will decide who will win the series after each team has taken one of the first two matchups.

The Guardians took the first game against the Dodgers, where they won 2-1 against Dodgers Ace Clayton Kershaw. The Dodgers came back from the loss on Saturday with a 7-1 win.

This finale will mean a lot to both teams as the Dodgers look to keep their first place spot in the NL West and the Guardians push to get into first place, two games back from the Minnesota Twins.

Let’s take a look ahead at the series finale matchup between the Cleveland Guardians and the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.

Betting Odds

As expected, the Dodgers again will be the 1.5 run favorites in this one since they have the better overall record and home-field advantage. At -1.5, the Dodgers have odds of +130 to win at that spread.

The Guardians have odds of -150 to cover the 1.5-point spread. The over/under for total runs scored in the game is set at 7.5 with odds of -115 and -105 to bet the over and under, respectively.

For the moneyline, the Guardians have odds of +151 to win, and the Dodgers have odds of -164 to win. The Guardians have been on a tear recently and have gone 8-2 in their last ten matchups. Los Angeles has split their last ten matchups with a record of 5-5.

Expected Pitching Matchup

Guardians’ right-hander Shane Bieber is expected to take on thirty-one-year-old left-hander Andrew Heaney from the Dodgers. Bieber has gone an even 3-3 on the season with an ERA of 3.01 and 75 strikeouts.

Heaney, who is expected to make his first start since April 20th, when he was shut down for shoulder discomfort, has gone 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and 16 strikeouts in the two games he has pitched.

Bieber has received a no decision in his past two outings, including his 6.2-inning effort earlier this week, where he gave up three runs on nine hits and struck out seven.

Heaney’s last game on April 17th was a win against the Cincinnati Reds, where he pitched six innings, only giving up one hit, no runs, and struck out eleven batters.

Expected Outcome

This series finale will be a tough one to pick due to the wild card of not knowing how Andrew Heaney will pitch coming off the injury.

He was dominant in his first two starts in the season and didn’t give up a run, but will he be able to pick up right where he left off?

I’m going to go out on a limb and take the Guardians on this one because I like Shane Bieber as the opposition to Heaney and the way that the Guardians have been playing recently.
