4 units on Miami +125 (moneyline) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: LOSS
This game looks too easy for Los Angeles. They are on fire while Florida has struggled and puts a rookie who's had no success on the mound. It looks too easy and that's a sign for us. Can the Dodgers win six straight and record their second straight sweep? Yes, but we think Florida staves it off. LA also puts a rookie on the mound in Hiroki Kuroda. He's been decent but stands at 1-2 and is coming off his worst start allowing 5 runs and 9 hits in six innings. The Dogers are a losing road team and they are just 3-5 in day games scoring 2.1 runs per game. If Badenhop gets into trouble, Florida's bullpen has been excellent, posting a 3.16 ERA. LA is just a bit too hot and that has to end. This line looks like a trap and we're gonna go the other way and back the home dog.
