According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Dodgers are massive -205 money line home favorites versus the visiting Braves, who are +188 money line road underdogs. The total for this 10:10PM ET start time is currently sitting at 6 runs.

Kershaw takes the mound for the Dodgers sporting a 12-2 record and a miniscule 1.76ERA, while the Braves will counter with Julio Teheran, who is enjoying a solid season while sporting a 10-6 record and a 2.71 ERA. Kershaw has yet to record a decision versus Atlanta but has limited the Braves to a .189 batting average in four career starts.

The over is 4-0-1 in Kershaw’s last five starts against the Braves, 6-1 in the last seven games between these two teams and 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams in Los Angeles. The over is also 5-1-1 in Kershaw’s last seven starts as a favorite of -201 or greater, 4-1 in his last five starts as a home favorite of -201 or greater, and 24-11-2 in the Dodgers’ last 37 games as a home favorite.

On the other side, the over is 4-1 in the Braves’ last five road games, 4-1-2 in their last seven games following a loss, and 3-1-1 in their last five road games versus a left-handed starter.
