How to safely and profitably bet the 2017 Los Angeles Dodgers

How to safely and profitably bet the 2017 Los Angeles Dodgers

"We were hoping to build on the momentum we gained in that first inning and weren't able to do that", Neil Walker said. They did something that hasn't been done since 1912 with their win over the New York Mets on Saturday.

Ryu Hyun-jin continued stating his case for a rotation spot, spinning seven shutout innings in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 8-0 win over the New York Mets on Sunday.

Los Angeles Dodgers' Justin Turner reaches around the tag of New York Mets shortstop Amed Rosario for stolen base during the first inning of a baseball game Sunday, Aug. 6, 2017, in New York.

What the Dodgers are doing is incredible, and yet it will give them no more than a 20-25% chance to win the crapshoot October tournament (FanGraphs now has those title chances at 18.8%). The Rays, held scoreless in their last 20 innings, were shut out in back-to-back games for the first time since April 2016, against the Indians and White Sox. Again, so far I think it's been something we know what he can do. The Mets (49-60) are 11 games under.500 for the first time this season.

Before the game, Collins acknowledged the obvious: As a team, the Mets are playing for next year, and as individuals, at least a half-dozen are playing for their next jobs. They've lost four in a row, seven of their last eight and nine of their last 11. They outscored the Mets 57-15 in those seven games and hit 25 home runs.




"When Steven got healthy, we saw in his first three starts what he's capable of and he's fought some other issues since and try to make sure he knows he's got to pitch through it, he's not going to feel good every time out", Collins said. Wood said he felt a little exhausted after beating Atlanta on Thursday night. RHP Yu Darvish will get an extra day of rest before starting Thursday's series finale at NL West rival Arizona. Robles has some general fatigue, Collins said. He is 2-0 with a 2.50 ERA in three regular-season outings against Los Angeles, all on the road.

The Mets have been frustrated with Matz's inability to stay off the disabled list.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Bruce Maxwell's two-run single completed a dramatic five-run, two-out comeback in the eighth inning, and Oakland stunned Los Angeles. He also walked, stole a base and scored a pair of runs in the ballgame, finishing the night 1-for-3.

Matz entered this season with a 3.16 ERA in his career, but had made just 28 starts due to various injuries.The lefty made just six regular-season starts during his rookie year in 2015 due to a partial tear of his left lat muscle, and he missed the final month and a half of the 2016 campaign due to a bone spur that was removed in an offseason surgery.
