Baseball Betting: PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES at LOS ANGELES DODGERS (7/8)

BASEBALL — July 8

PHILADELPHIA (Morgan) at L.A. DODGERS (Kershaw)
(America’s Bookie Line: Dodgers -360 / Phillies +300, Total 6.5) — Maybe an angry effort from Kershaw here, as he was snubbed for an all star berth. Remember that even though his ERA is over 3.00, his WHIP ratio is just slightly over 1.00. He is also striking out opposing batters at a higher rate than he ever has in his career, and the ratio of strikeouts to walks is outstanding. His allowed just one run in each of his last two starts. But when you go five straight outings without a victory, that’s a pretty good indication that he’s not getting offensive support. Adam Morgan is unknown to the Dodgers, but he’s done a pretty solid job in his two major league starts (2.13 ERA).

PLAY BY JAY: UNDER 6.5 (-115) **
