After two games in Bean Town, the World Series heads to La La Land.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will host the Boston Red Sox in the 2018 World Series for at least Game 3 on Friday, Oct. 26 and Game 4 the next day. Game 5 will be played on Sunday, if necessary.

Start time for Game 3 is scheduled at 5:09 p.m. PT, 8:09 p.m. ET, and all 2018 World Series games are broadcast on Fox and can be streamed on

Tonight’s starting pitchers will be the following:

Boston Red Sox

  • RHP Rick Porcello
    • 2018 Regular Season: 17-7 record, 4.28 ERA
    • 2018 Postseason: 1-0 record, 4.22 ERA

Los Angeles Dodgers

  • RHP Walker Buehler
    • 2018 Regular Season: 8-5 record, 2.62 ERA
    • 2018 Postseason: 0-1 record, 5.40 ERA

In additional, here is the Run Line, Money Line, and Runs O/U for the 2018 World Series Game 3 from Bovada*2(Link to Bovada Referal Page):

2018 World Series Game 3 Run Line

  • Boston Red Sox RHP Rick Porcello +1.5 (-155)
  • Los Angeles Dodgers RHP Walker Buehler -1.5 (+135)

2018 World Series Game 3 Money Line

  • Boston Red Sox Win (+135)
  • Los Angeles Dodgers Win (-155)

2018 World Series Game 3 Runs Total Over/Under

  • Over 5 (-110)
  • Under 5 (-110)

To avoid going falling to 0-3 in the series, the Dodgers will hand the ball to Rookie RHP Walker Buehler to try and shut down the Red Sox vaunted batting lineup.

Buehler had been phenomenal in his first full major league baseball season, posting a 2.62 ERA in 24 games but has struggled so far in the postseason with a 5.40 ERA in three starts.

Red Sex RHP Rick Porcello has been a mirror image of his regular season self in the postseason, posting a 4.28 ERA in 33 games in the regular season and a 4.22 ERA in 2 starts and 2 relief appearances in the postseason.

Both teams will likely make some adjustments to their lineups, adding in more left-handed batters to take advantage of the right-hand pitchers.

Finally, here is how both teams have fared in 2018 as the underdog and the favorite for the Run Line to assist with baseball betting:
