4* MLB Public Opinion Blowout on Dodgers -1.5 -120
The public is all over the Dodgers here, as one might expect with ace Clayton Kershaw on the mound. I completely agree with the public here. Rather than pay the big price to get LA on the money line, I'll take it on the run line.
Going back to last season Chicago scheduled starter Chris Volstad is 0-11 on the money line in his last 11 starts. His teams have lost these games by 3.63 runs on average.
Kershaw is having another strong season, and he has been tough as nails at home lately. The Dodgers are 4-0 in his last 4 home starts and have won those by an average of 2.25 runs. He has held the opposition to just 1 earned run in each of his last 3 home starts. We'll take the Dodgers on the run line.
