MLB Thursday

(40-30 +13,240)
Dodgers let me down in my last play. On the hunt for under the radar game.

Los Angeles Dodgers at Oakland A's
Clayton Kershaw 5-3, the star for the Dodgers take the mound. He's not as brilliant as he was in April, had couple of games giving up 5 runs in May, but also threw a shutout too. Coming into to June he has been diagnosed with  plantar fasciitis and though the Dodgers have won all three of Kershaw's June starts he's only logged 1 win and 2 ND's which is not much concern to L.A. backers who's ridden Kershaw's start to 10-4 record. So the Dodgers are 5-1 on Kershaw's ND's for combined 71.4% that's fantastic record, but it tells me he didn't do it alone. L.A. was playing good ball and they are still the team to beat here, but stepping up covering for star players on DL is starting to catch up. The Dodgers are lacking offense and Oakland A's are playing their best baseball this season. Looking for Blackley to improve his game against the slumping Dodgers offense. Usually in a case of hot team against a hot pitcher I like the pitcher to chill out the bats, but the hot pitcher today is warm with Dodgers less than 100%

OAKLAND A's +135 for 1 unit(W)

Pow! walk off 3 run HR sweeping the Dodgers 4-1
