This Interleague matchup at the sports book will probably see sports betting gamblers taking the Dodgers but the MLB betting odds trends actually favor the Athletics in this series.
MLB odds trends tell us that the A’s have won 8 of the last 10 meetings against the Dodgers. This is the first of a three-game series between the two teams and it is the fourth game of a nine-game road trip for Oakland. The last time the teams met was in 2006 in Oakland and the A’s won all three games versus the MLB odds. The last time they played in Los Angeles was in 2000 and the A’s won two of those three games versus the MLB odds. The MLB odds trends will definitely be tested in this series considering the Dodgers are excellent at home.
The A’s have struggled on the road this season in MLB betting odds at the sports book so it seems unlikely they will be able to continue their historical success against the Dodgers. Oakland has just an average offense and an average pitching staff. That doesn’t bode well against a Dodgers team that excels in all areas. Oakland will have to hope that their recent hitting continues if they are to have a chance in this MLB odds series.
Los Angeles has had the top pitching staff in the league for much of the season as MLB odds stats show. Their offense is not far behind as it has ranked right around the Top 5 in the league as MLB betting odds numbers indicated. The Dodgers have had a balanced attack even without the suspended Manny Ramirez. So far this season the Dodgers have been the best team in the National League.
Two of the three games at Los Angeles back in 2000 between the two teams went under the MLB odds sportsbook total. With these two pitching staffs it is possible that this game goes under the MLB betting odds total as well.
