Is it Worth it to Bet Against the Rolling Dodgers?

Going 34-7 in their last 41 games, there’s no doubt that the Dodgers are the best team in baseball right now. They just keep finding ways to win and last night, it was rookie sensation Cody Bellinger who guided the Boys of Summer to victory with his go-ahead home run in the bottom of the eighth inning in the Dodgers’ series opener against the Twins.

SHARK BITES
  • The Twins are 0-4 SU in their last 4 games against the Dodgers.
  • The Dodgers are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games with Kenta Maeda as the starting pitcher.
  • The Twins are 1-4 SU and on the runline in their last 5 games on the road.

Los Angeles will be significantly favored once again when Kenta Maeda (8-4, 4.23 ERA) takes the hill to face a youngster in Jose Berrios (9-3, 3.50 ERA) who will make his first ever start against the Azul.

Although he’s been terrific in his first season as a full-timer, Berrios has been much better at home and he wouldn’t be the first to crumble in his first start at Chavez Ravine. His 4.46 ERA in road starts this year is a little suspect and considering how these Dodgers are hitting the ball right now, I fear the 23-year-old might be in for a little trial by fire.

Maeda, who’s had a turbulent season, has settled down and he’ll be going for a third straight win tonight after allowing just two total earned runs in his last two trips to the bump. With one of the best bullpens in baseball, manager Dave Roberts hasn’t had to stretch out the second-year starter and will probably be happy with five good innings from the righty.

Tough to bet against the blue and white when they’re rolling like this and by no means do I think they’re fade material tonight. A runline wager may be worth consideration for the team with the second-best run differential in the majors.
