Alex Wood has Been Unbeatable at Dodger Stadium

A three-run home run from Daniel Descalso in the top of the ninth of last night’s series opener between the D-backs and Dodgers made things look a lot closer than they actually were, but for runline bettors it was a kill shot. Those seeking value in this NL West set will get another chance tonight with the Snakes opening on the moneyline at +200.

SHARK BITES
  • The Dodgers are 13-1 SU and 10-4 on the runline in their last 14 games at home.
  • Alex Wood has received an average of 6.17 runs of support this season.
  • The Dodgers are 6-0 SU and 5-1 on the runline in Wood’s 6 starts at home this season.

For the Dodgers, the W on Tuesday brought their winning streak with Clayton Kershaw as their starting pitcher to 12 and improved their home record this season to a league-best 34-11. They’ll send Alex Wood (9-0, 1.83 ERA) to the hill in the second frame of a three-game set with the southpaw looking to continue his breakout season.

LA hasn’t lost a game started by Wood since April 26 and his pitching at home has been worthy of the 26-year-old receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 

All that said, the D-backs should not be counted out. Arizona has one of the best offenses in all of baseball and the pitcher they’ll send to the mound tonight is no slouch either. Zack Godley (3-2, 2.67 ERA) has spun a quality start in eight of his last nine starts, of which his team has won seven games.
