Dodgers are Cashing All Sorts of Bets on Home Turf

There are three teams in Major League Baseball with 50 or more wins – two of them are in the NL West. Those two clubs will meet in Los Angeles this evening when the Dodgers host the D-backs in a series that has some serious first-place implications. Clayton Kershaw (12-2, 2.32 ERA) is set to kick things off for the home team as the Dodgers look to improve on their league-best 33-11 record on friendly turf.

SHARK BITES
  • The Dodgers are 12-1 SU and 10-3 on the runline in their last 13 games at home.
  • The D-backs are 1-10 SU in their last 11 games on the road with Patrick Corbin as the starting pitcher.
  • The Dodgers are 17-1 SU in their last 18 games at home with Clayton Kershaw as the starting pitcher.

LA won’t be an easy team to beat tonight with the best pitcher in baseball taking the hill and the odds agree. The moneyline opened with the Dodgers, who have won 11 straight games with Kershaw as their starter, as -274 favorites while the Snakes can be bet at a price near +250.

Arizona will send Patrick Corbin to the mound and if he continues to pitch like he did at the end of June, the D-backs have a shot at the massive upset tonight. The southpaw has given up just three earned runs in his last 12.2 innings of work but he’s seen some of his worst performances this season come on the road where he owns a bloated 7.84 ERA.

Your best bet here is probably to take a risk on the Dodgers’ runline. You’ll get better value (-145) and books have been getting shelled in this spot.
