That made winners of bettors who got Los Angeles at -106 on the moneyline, while the total score (5) was good news for UNDER bettors. Clayton Kershaw fanned 11 Los Angeles batters in the team's last outing, leading the Dodgers to a 3-2 victory over the Angels at Dodger Stadium.

In their last action, Minnesota was a 6-2 loser on the road against the Brewers. Bettors on Milwaukee at -165 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (8) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
