Maybe Don’t Bet Against Kershaw As A Massive Fave

Clayton Kershaw will take the bump for the Los Angeles Dodgers and he will once again enter a start as a humongous favorite. Monday’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies will be the seventh time Kershaw and the Dodgers close as a moneyline favorite of -300 or more this season. In the previous six outings, the Dodgers are 5-1 SU with Kershaw allowing a combined seven runs in 38.0 innings.

Shark Bites
  • The Dodgers are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games against the Phillies.
  • The total has gone OVER in 7 of the Dodgers’ last 10 games against the Phillies.
  • The Phillies are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games against left-handed starting pitchers.

The Phillies will counter with a struggling Nick Pivetta. The pitcher has surrendered 18 hits and 13 earned runs in his past two starts, which both lasted just 5.0 innings. Pivetta has seen the Dodgers lineup once this year back in April, allowing nine hits but just two runs in 5.0 innings.

The Dodgers swept the Phillies when they met for a three-game set during the first half, but none of those games were blowouts. All three of those contests saw the Phillies stay within two runs. Another positive note for Phillies fans, the club is actually performing pretty well lately with a 5-3 record in their past eight.
