Are the Dodgers getting one of its Cy Young level pitchers back to form?

Julio Urias has been on a tear since the All-Star break after struggling to start the 2023 season. Can he continue to rise his profile ahead of a postseason run? He faces a Red Sox team that has done some damage against left handed pitching and will start one of its own in James Paxton.

Dodgers vs. Red Sox prediction and pick

Before the All-Star break, Urias was pitching to a 4.76 ERA, allowing more than a home run per start. However, he has found his stride since the break, pitching to a 3.21 ERA over his last seven starts, and has been on a tear in the month of August. Urias is pitching to a 1.44 ERA this month while striking out 27 batters and dishing out only two walks.

The Dodgers have emerged as the runaway NL West winner this season behind it's scorching bats and its in-form pitching. While I expect Urias to limit a Red Sox lineup, Paxton may be able to as well.

The left hander has taken a step back in the second half of the season, posting a 5.50 ERA since the All-Star break, down from 2.73 in the first half, but has thrived at home. The left hander has pitched to a 2.58 ERA in seven starts at home, down from his road ERA of 4.73.

This number is high for two left handers who have showcased their high level ceilings this season and are in advantageous spots on Saturday afternoon. Give me the under as my favorite bet.
