PUBLIC BETTING INFORMATION
As of this writing, 77% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Dodgers to beat the Diamondbacks. Meanwhile, 71% of the betting tickets are on the under.
This is one of my favorite under bets on the board tonight. First and foremost, Kershaw has dominated the Diamondbacks, posting a 2.55 ERA, a 1.12 WHIP, and a .219 batting average against in 26 career meetings versus his division rivals. In his two starts a year ago against Arizona, Kershaw limited the Diamondbacks to a .118 batting average in 15 total innings (two starts).
Meanwhile, Godley is coming off a breakout performance in 2017 and will face an L.A. lineup that has already struck out the third-most in the National League thus far. It's also very unlikely that Yasmani Grandal's sizzling bat will not be in the lineup after he caught all 15 innings for the Diamondbacks last night.
The under is 6-1 in Kershaw's last seven road starts versus the Diamondbacks and is 20-8-2 in his last 30 road outings when facing a team with a winning record.
