MLB Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Dodgers are 8-2 in their last 10 games versus a left-handed starter. Los Angeles is 5-1 in Wood's last six road starts.

Texas

The Rangers are 2-5 in their last seven games overall. Texas is 1-4 in its last five interleague games.

Prediction:

The Dodgers have played better as of late, but have been wildly inconsistent all season. On the road against a starter pitching well lately, I'm going to take a chance on the Rangers recording the upset here.
