MLB Odds at Get That Bet — For the Dodgers, It’s Kershaw….And That’s All You Need to Know

Clayton Kershaw, the two-time Cy Young Award winner who is zeroing in on a third, has probably exceeded any superlatives people could have imagined for him at the beginning of the season. He will go to the mound looking to pitch another gem for the Los Angeles Dodgers as they play host to the Los Angeles Angels in baseball betting action that gets underway at 10:10 PM ET at Dodger Stadium.

Kershaw is coming off back-to-back complete game victories, and the Dodgers were turned back by the Angels on Monday night (with Zack Greinke on the mound, no less), which means this could be a rather daunting task for Hector Santiago (1-7, 41.16 ERA) to match up with what the Dodger lefty can do.

Currently these teams are primary contenders in their respective leagues. The Dodgers came into Tuesday night’s action with a lead of a game and a half over the San Francisco Giants in the National League West, while the Angels, who have the second-best record in the majors, are also second best in the AL West, a game behind Oakland.

In the MLB odds that have been posted at Get That Bet, the Dodgers are prohibitive favorites:

Los Angeles Dodgers (Kershaw – L) -240
Los Angeles Angels (Santiago – L) +200

Over 6 Runs -125
Under 6 Runs +105

The Dodgers’ mediocre 29-27 record at home continues to plague them, but none of that really matters when Kershaw is on the mound, because the ace has a 1.57 ERA at Chavez Ravine, and a ratio of 82 strikeouts to just five walks. That is not a typographical error either.

This team has not lost with Kershaw on the mound since May 28. From June 8 until the present, he has given up seven earned runs in 78 innings, along with just 44 hits and 95 strikeouts. He last faced the Angels in July 2011, as he was pounded for six earned runs over six innings, and he has never encountered Mike Trout in a regular season game. Perhaps that means “advantage: pitcher.” As Get That Bet customers know, this is a southpaw who comes along only once in a great while.

Those analyzing the MLB odds may want to take note that Santiago hasn’t done too badly lately. He has allowed one run on five hits over his last two starts, which have encompassed 10-1/3 innings. With a 3.56 ERA, the Angels’ bullpen is not stellar, but it’s not God-awful either. Keep in mind that if any team could be dangerous on the road, maybe it’s the Halos, who score 5.1 runs per game as the visitor. It will indeed be entertaining to see if Trout and the others can get through to Kershaw.
