Miami Marlins vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Matinee Betting Odds

Los Angeles Dodgers: NL West playoff race leaders

Sitting with a 30-42 record and 9.5 games out of first in the National League West Division on June 21, many pundits gave up on the Los Angeles Dodgers 2013 MLB season. Preseason World Series favorites in the NL, the Dodgers have really cranked it up recently as they’ve reeled off a 44-10 record over their past 54 games – an amazing run indeed. On the road, or at Chavez Ravine, LA has been lights out as their stellar pitching staff (third best ERA at 3.27) has been matched by the fourth best team batting average (.268) in the Majors.

Miami Marlins: Battling Houston for first selection in the MLB 2014 Draft

Just like their inter-state NFL team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Miami Marlins are the worst run franchise in Major League Baseball. It’s showing up in the Marlins bottom line again this year as Miami (48-77) is just nine losses away from being eliminated from postseason play. It’s going to be tough for the Manatee’s to catch the Houston Astros (41-85) for the worst record in baseball but the Marlins don’t deserve the first pick in the draft anyway. Miami conducts annual fire sales and All-Star Giancarlo Stanton is likely to be the next stud to go.

Understanding that it’s tough to sweep a four game series – against any team – and that they are trying to do it on the road, we are still kind of surprised by the wagering lines place on the Dodgers today. The bovada.lv sports wagering website has Los Angeles listed as road chalk at -1.5 (-145) on the run line and -250 straight up. With LHP Clayton Kershaw (12-7 ERA 1.80) on the bump for the visitors, those lines almost seems like a gift and we are always leery of gifts from the bookmakers. We’ll bite though and back LA on the run line!
