Betting on the Los Angeles Dodgers (52-28)
The red-hot Dodgers have begun cooling off a bit as they’ve dropped two of their last three games against the Angels. Prior to the start of their four-game set, the Dodgers had won 10 games in a row, and went 16-1 in their last 17 games.
But if there’s anyone the Dodgers want to have on the mound after a loss, it’s the great Clayton Kershaw. The Dodgers ace bounced back from his worst start of the season (six earned runs and four home runs allowed in 6.1 innings against the Mets) by going six scoreless innings in a 4-0 win over the Rockies.
The Dodgers are now an impressive 14-2 in the 16 games Kershaw has started this season. They are also 6-3 in Kershaw’s nine career starts against the Angels, and his last three starts have been wildly impressive. He’s gone 7-8 innings in all three of those outings, giving up just two earned runs in total.
Betting on the Los Angeles Angels (42-40)
The Angels just continue to stick around despite the absence of Mike Trout. They’ve now gone 4-1 in their last five games after their 3-2 win over the Dodgers last night. They’re now two games over .500 and have a chance to go up to three games over for the first time since they were 6-3.
They’ve been getting very good starting pitching over that recent winning run. Alex Meyer went six scoreless innings last night, but was unlucky to get a no-decision. JC Ramirez will look to keep that going when he takes the mound.
JC Ramirez will look to keep that going when he takes the mound tonight. The 28-year-old has had a rough June, with his ERA ballooning to 6.84 in five starts. However, he’s improved in recent outings. He gave up just one earned run in six innings last time out in a win against Boston. That’s his second quality start in his last three starts.
Ramirez, though, has strangely been more ineffective at home this season than on the road. He’s 1-3 with a 5.10 ERA in seven starts compared to 6-2 with a 3.68 ERA in seven games away from Angels Stadium.
Kershaw leads the Dodgers (-240) to a bounce-back win.
