Land Down Under Hosts 2014 Major League Baseball Opening Day
Dodgers Kershaw vs. Diamondbacks Miley opens MLB 2014
Anticipation and exceptions are running high in Los Angeles as the Dodgers are top chalk to claim their first World Series title since 1988 with a +700 money line at the sportsbetting.ag online sportsbook. LHP Clayton Kershaw is making his fourth straight Opening Day start for LA as the reigning NL Cy Young Award winner goes up against LHP Wade Miley who is a replacement for Arizona ace Patrick Corbin who is dealing with a ligament injury in his left elbow. Miley (14 innings pitched with two earned runs allowed over three starts) actually has better spring numbers than Kershaw who had a bloated 9.20 ERA line over 14.2 innings pitched during four spring starts.
Dodgers ace has been brilliant in the Opening Day starter role
Kershaw has been lights out as he hasn’t allowed a run over 19 Opening Day innings pitched as the Dodgers have won their last three openers. Kershaw went seven innings, struck out nine and allowed four hits in a 2-1 win over the Giants in 2011. His 2012 outing (3 IP 2 H 3 K 0 ER) was cut short due to a stomach virus but the Dodgers won 5-3 over the Padres. Kershaw pushed that outing into our distant memory after his dream start last season as LA shutout the Giants 4-0 at Chavez Ravine. The LA ace tossed a complete game four hitter AND he hit a game winning home run to open the flood gates in the Dodgers four run eighth inning.
Dodgers vs. Diamondbacks Call – Sportsbook.ag MLB Opening Day Prices
With first pitch now less than an hour away, there’s still time to bank a bonus and place your wager on this contest that features a pair of teams that don’t like each other. We don’t expect a lot of brawling, hit batters, or “leaks” in the pool, but the D-Backs and Dodgers are building one of the most heated MLB rivalries. Asking for a repeat of his gem from a year ago is a bit much but – we like the “Kershinator” to bust out of his spring funk and bring his good stuff to the hill today. Give us the Boys in Blue with a 500 unit investment on the sportsbetting.ag run line.
