Jun 24, 2022; Cumberland, Georgia, USA; Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Trea Turner (6) and first baseman Freddie Freeman (5) react after defeating the Atlanta Braves at Truist Park.

Two division leaders collide when the Los Angeles Dodgers host the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. The Dodgers (75-33) own the best record in baseball and a 16-game lead over the Padres in the NL West. Meanwhile, the Twins (57-51) hold a one-game lead over the Guardians and a two-game lead over the White Sox in the AL Central. Los Angeles is a -235 favorite in the latest Dodgers vs. Twins odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while Minnesota is a +192 underdog. First pitch is set for 10:10 p.m. ET. 

The game is one of 16 on the MLB schedule for Tuesday. Elsewhere in the majors, Shohei Ohtani takes the mound for the Angels against the A's and the White Sox and Royals play a doubleheader in Kansas City.
