MLB Sports Handicappers Preview LA Dodgers (54-50) at San Francisco (60-45)

We closed a very successful July with our winning sports picks going 60 – 40 and +21.73 units. That’s why we always preach patients and a long term approach to our winning sports picks. One bad month or good month does not make a full year. We are right on track of our annual goals at more the +40 units.


In sports some things are just what they are and not always explainable. Matt Cain has 14 starts against the Dodgers in his career and brings a pretty solid 4.32 ERA in those 14 starts. Unfortunately Cain has an 0 – 8 record to how for his efforts. Cain is 10 - 5 with an ERA of 2.96 and is 2 – 0 with a 2.05 ERA of his last three starts. At home he is 8 - 8 with an ERA of 3.14 ERA.


The Dodger enter this one 7 games back in the NL West and can ill afford to get swept by the Giants. Kershaw heads to the hill returning from a 5 game suspension. His suspension came in a game against the Giants when he intentionally hit San Francisco's Aaron Rowand. Kershaw is 10 – 5 with a 2.96 ERA overall and a sold 4 – 3 with an ERA of 3.08 on the road this season. He has faced the Giants twice this year allowing 4 and 1 run in those two starts. A closer look shows he has allowed just 8 hits over 13 innings against the Giants while striking out 15 batters. This is the ESPN Sunday Night Baseball game and worth a look in.
