Dodgers dominate in series opener

Alex Verdugo was 3-for-6 with a homer, three runs scored and two RBIs. Clayton Kershaw picked up the win as he allowed one earned run on four hits with seven strikeouts and one walk over six innings. Walker Buehler draws the start tonight as he enters with an 8-1 record, 3.46 ERA and 0.99 WHIP with 113 strikeouts over 104 innings pitched.

Kingery homers in loss

Philadelphia led 1-0 through three innings Monday night at home versus Los Angeles, but allowed six runs in the fourth and eventually lost by a count of 16-2.

MLB Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Dodgers are 8-1 in the last nine Buehler starts. Los Angeles is 55-25 in its last 80 games overall.


The Phillies are 5-0 in their last five Tuesday games. Philadelphia is 6-2 in the last eight Velasquez home starts.


Velasquez is too erratic for my tastes to bet against the best team in the National League, even with the Phillies being at home. Buehler has had a fantastic season after a sluggish start and should slow down a Philadelphia offense that will see a much different look than last night with Kershaw. It's a steep price, but I love LA in this spot.
