MLB Betting Line Takes Notice as Dodgers Regain Form

Sun, 06 May 2012 00:11
With no disrespect to the San Diego Padres, the battle for National League supremacy in the state of California concerns two teams and two teams only. This Monday the Los Angeles Dodgers will play host to the San Francisco Giants on Bovada’s MLB betting line. Although the Dodgers may have the early lead in the standings (in fact, they sit first in the entire National League), Major League Baseball odds makers aren’t quite sure exactly what to make of the franchise in transition. As a result, with 16/1 odds of winning the World Series, they sit above, but not far above the 20/1 Giants. Is it safe to say that, after back-to-back years of underachievement, management issues and coaching changes, the Dodgers are ready to reclaim their spot among the National League’s best? They’ll have to get through in-state rival San Francisco - the 2010 World Series champions - if they hope to. Led by center-fielding wunderkind and perennial MVP candidate Matt Kemp, Los Angeles has come on strong to start the 2012 campaign. Though they’ll have their work cut out for them staying competitive in a grueling division, it’s more than a possibility. With the summer approaching all eyes will be on the annual race for playoff positioning and how that impacts the MLB betting line. Can the Dodgers win some support with a successful showing against their rivals? The Giants might not be so kind. Bet on Major League Baseball today
