Los Angeles Dodgers at Pittsburgh Pirates Prediction

The Pittsburgh Pirates are coming off a surprising upset win over the NL West leading Dodgers. However, with Tony Gonsolin on the mound, and his ERA of just 1.64, look for Pittsburgh to struggle on offense. I am counting on a bounceback game for the Dodgers and am taking them to cover at -1.5 runs.
