We delivered another winner on Sunday for our visitors to the Sportsbook Room as the New York Yankees continued their dominance against the Oakland Athletics by posting the 2-0 road win as a -117 betting favorite. Former LA Dodger Hiroki Kuroda was in the perfect ballpark for his stuff and what resulted was eight shutout innings by the right hander with relief help in the ninth inning from Rafael Soriano who closed out the win by posting his fifth save of the season. The Oakland Athletics anemic bats were limited to just five hits all game contributing to a series sweep to the Yankees in their three games. Out best betting pick from Memorial Day comes from the National League west coast affair as the Milwaukee Brewers and LA Dodgers open up a series. The Brewers and Dodgers will begin from Dodger Stadium at 8PM Eastern Time and it’s the MLB package delivering the live national television broadcast. Our MLB top pick for Memorial Day is playing on the LA Dodgers -114 odds against the Milwaukee Brewers. The odds from the Major League Baseball best bet were pulled from BetOnline sportsbook.
The betting odds opened up in this National League affair with the home team LA Dodgers as -115 home favorites with the total at 7 runs. The take back on the Milwaukee Brewers is +105 odds. Early money has shown up on the Brewers as LA is now favored by -114 odds with Milwaukee now returning +104 odds. The run total has shown some slight movement upward as the game is hung in some establishments at 7 ½ runs while there are still plenty of betting shops dealing a 7 run total. LA Dodgers run line bettors lay the -1 ½ runs will get back +190 odds for their wager. Those taking the -1 ½ run head start with the Milwaukee Brewers will lay -205 odds on the run line bet.
The Brewers enter play losers of two straight and seven of their past ten games. Shaun Marcum takes to the hill tonight for Milwaukee. The Brewers are just 2-7 this season in Marcum’s nine starts. He sits with an ERA of 5.00 over his past three starts. He gave up six earned runs in six innings against San Francisco last time he took the mound.
The LA Dodgers send Aaron Harang to the hill to face the Brewers lineup. He made one start at Dodger Stadium in 2011 against the Brewers and allowed no earned runs in eight innings. I am going to forgive his last outing at Arizona because the run totals have been extremely high in games played as Chase Field with the roof open like it was in the Dodgers series with the Diamondbacks last week. At home Harang sports a WHIP of 1.08 so he doesn’t allow many base runners. The Dodger bullpen has been solid at home with an ERA of 2.35 in 65 innings of work. LA is 21-5 at home this season and at this price you are getting a great bargain with the Dodgers at the best online sportsbooks.
