Dodgers Game Today: Dodgers vs Angels Odds, Pitching Matchup, Starting Lineup, Predictions, Live Stream, TV Channel for Aug. 8
By Mike Luciano
The Los Angeles Dodgers are all geared up for another run at a championship, as the additions of Trea Turner and Max Scherzer helped one of the most loaded teams in the league somehow get even deeper and more experienced.
The Los Angeles Angels have done well to at least stay near .500 with no Mike Trout and an underperforming Anthony Rendon, largely due to the amazing skills that Shohei Ohtani brings to the table. Still, they haven’t fared well when compared to a Dodgers team with high aspirations.
The Dodgers avenged a 4-3 loss with a 5-3 victory, as a clutch Chris Taylor hit combined with Kenley Jansen slamming the door shut on their American League counterparts helped LA pick up another win in their quest to overtake the rival San Francisco Giants.
The Dodgers will send one of their game-changers to the mound today with the intent of coming out on top against their Orange County-based rivals.

Dodgers vs Angels Odds Today
Our friends at WynnBet have the Dodgers as a massive favorite on Sunday, as they come into the contest -325 on the moneyline (bet $325 to win $100) while the Angels are +265 (bet $100 to win $265). Vegas is expecting a blowout.
The run total is 8.0, with the over sitting at -125 (bet $125 to win $100) and the under at +105 (bet $100 to win $105). The odds don’t think the Angels will do much hitting against the Dodgers’ sterling pitching.
Dodgers Pitcher Today
Walker Buehler (11-2, 2.16) will try to show that the Cy Young award is his to keep, as he has been unhittable of late. Over his last five starts, Buehler has allowed just three earned runs, which is good for a sparkling 1.08 ERA. In a lineup that might not have Ohtani due to the lack of a DH, Buehler could dominate.
The Angels will counter with Reid Detmers, a 22-year-old top prospect who gave up six runs in 4.1 innings during his first MLB start. Detmers was picked in the first round out of Louisville last year, and he could start to show why he was a highly-touted prospect as he takes on his crosstown rivals.

Dodgers vs Angels Prediction Today
The Angels might be able to have some success against LA’s lineup, but it seems hard to believe that a lineup that could be without both Ohtani and Trout will do much of anything against one of the best pitchers in the game in Buehler. Expect another tidy, efficient performance.
Detmers might be able to mow down the lineup with some degree of skill given his pedigree, but this bullpen is still a hot mess, and the Dodgers could tee off on them if given the chance.
Dodgers win, 6-1.
