2 units on Atlanta -160 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
If you haven't noticed how dominant Atlanta has been at home, then note their 39-15 mark. The Dodgers aren't even ordinary on the road, entering this one with a 23-32 mark for the season. Tim Hudson is pitching like he did for the A's when he was a top pitcher, and maybe even better with a 2.24 ERA. He has been money on the mound, allowing 3 runs or less in 21 of 23 starts. He is stingy at home with an ERA of 2, and a record of 8-3. The Dodgers won seven of Hiroki Kuroda's first eight starts, but have not fared well since at just 5-9, as he has pitched to a 4.16 ERA. The Dodgers are just 1-7 on the road vs. winning teams in their last 8, and Kuroda has lost all four of his last road starts. I’m on Atlanta in this one.
