3 units on Los Angeles -117 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Brandon Webb has been searching for that 20th win, and is finding it quite elusive. The D-Backs looked like they were in control as the Dodgers went into the tank dropping eight straight. Now the pressure is really on as the Dodgers have emerged from the ashes with six straight wins including a whitewash of the D-Backs last night. The Dodgers are poised to take the division lead today and have all the momentum to do so. Webb has built some negative "mojo" as he has not made it out of the fifth inning in two consecutive starts, and has been walking a bunch and has had a complete meltdown. Chad Billingsley has not made a name for himself yet, but his ERA is actually better than Webb's for the season. The Dodgers have it going, so Webb's 20th will have to wait. I'm taking the Dodgers in this one.
