MLB betting predictions:
If the Dodgers are as serious as they want to be, they will win tonight. A chance to consolidate the division on the road would be a statement win to inform the NL. Kershaw is back in the rotation that will open them up against the rust and the Seattle Wave. I expect tonight to be a repeat of last night. A close game in which LA’s credit ultimately outweighs Seattle’s.
