Take Arizona (#961)
I could do this write-up in a single sentence: ‘The Dodgers have no business as $2 favorites right now'.
Yes, LA has 100 win talent. No, they're not playing like a 100 win team right now. We saw this last year down the stretch, when the markets refused to accept LA's serious September swoon and anti-Dodger bettors made a small fortune in a matter of weeks. And yet here are the 4-9 Dodgers, down nearly 11 units in 2 ½ weeks of action – dead last in baseball – laying a huge price again today. Let's not forget that Kershaw has been human in recent starts against Arizona – he's given up six dingers in his last two starts against the Dbacks. Arizona is as hot as LA is cold, and Zack Godley has shown top of the rotation stuff. Live dog here! Take the Diamondbacks
