|Home Team:||ARI Diamondbacks|
|Away Team:||LA Dodgers|
We have a drama alert already early in the season in a game between the Diamondbacks who overcame a 3 run deficit in the bottom of the ninth with two outs and hit the three run homer to tie the game at 6 and win it in the 15th innings 8-7.
With the headlines such as that the Dodgers shut-down specialist closer Jensen looked mortal in his first two appearances this season - no wonder the odds have been moving against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers in a game two of the series at Arizona. After last night heroics by the D'Backs - the public is expecting the Dodgers to rebound big time and Vegas seems absolutely misguided in this one. What Vegas is saying is the following: the Dodgers may win or not win - but, there is no way they will win by two runs or more. Both run lines are pretty attractive with the D'Backs getting -115 odds on +1.5 and the Dodgers -105 odds with -1.5 line.
I have no business arguing with Vegas about anything as I will be a fool to think I know what will happen better than Vegas does.
So, I'll smart up and risk the juice throwing a system at the Dodgers and Kershaw.
