Following a wild card game loss in 2013 Dusty Baker was fired as manager of the Cincinnati Reds. Baker was sent packing for failing to win in the playoffs. But at least he made the playoffs. As a matter of fact, the Reds have not returned to post season since Baker got the gas. In fact, they have become one of the biggest losers on the MLB game lines board. In a similar way the Los Angeles Dodgers have not been a profitable team for the past two years. Yet they made the playoffs both years.

Reds vs. Dodgers MLB TV Coverage: ESPN
Few teams have won more games and yet lost more money than the Los Angeles Dodgers. To be exact the Dodgers are too popular with gamblers. Too much in the way of fan and casual money flows to this blue blood legacy franchise. Any time that LA does lose it busts bankrolls to a severe degree. However, the Dodgers have been slightly in the black this year with a mark of 8-5 and +116 units. LA went over the total in nine of their first 13 games.
Specifically run production has been the strength of Los Angeles. To show the Dodgers rank second best in Major League Baseball for runs scored. Additionally, LA ranks third for batting average, second for OPS and third for home runs. Of great concern is that Dodgers rank 17th for staff earned run average. First baseman Cody Bellinger has powered to seven home runs and a 1.391 OPS.
By contrast the Reds are a flop once again with eight losses in their first 11 games. Cincinnati has gone under the total in eight of their first 11 matchups. To be exact the 25th ranked run production standing has been a killer.
Of major concern for betting MLB game lines is Cincinnati’s terrible value as a road team. As an example, the Reds have lost 13 of their last 16 away matchups. And 12 of their last 14 in that situation have gone under the total. By contrast the Dodgers have been a successful home club. LA has paid in 13 of their last 18 games at Dodger Stadium. Six of their last seven in that role have gone over the total.
Los Angeles has been the superior sportsbook online value against Cincinnati. To show the Dodgers have won six of their last seven against the Reds. Only two of the last seven between these teams have gone over the total. Further, the Dodgers have dominated the Reds at Los Angeles. Cincinnati has dropped 14 of their last 20 games at Dodger Stadium. Three of the last four in this matchup at LA have gone under the total.
Matchup to Watch
In this situation the Reds simply offer no appeal with MLB game lines. Because of this the Dodgers are the play. Despite what will be a huge price.
