It was yet another winner here at the Sportsbook Room as the Washington Nationals and LA Dodgers go under the total of six runs. We got the Cy Young award winner from 2011 Clayton Kershaw pitching yet another gem as the Washington Nationals offense once again struggles for runs. Washington from starting pitching to bullpen has been very good to start the 2012 season and they limited the Dodgers bats to just three runs. The Nationals bullpen once again threw scoreless relief to keep this total under six runs.

Starting tonight for the Arizona Diamondbacks will be Ian Kennedy. Arizona has won four straight against the Miami Marlins including a 5-0 win last night at +122 betting underdog. Kennedy has jumped out to a 3-0 record this season. The Arizona right hander in his lone road start this season allowed just one earned run over six innings at San Diego. The Diamondbacks do well against right handed pitching with over 4 ½ runs scored in 14 games. Arizona is batting .271 in their past seven games. Over their past five games Arizona has pushed across an average of over five runs per game.
The Miami Marlins will throw right hander Anibal Sanchez to face the Diamondback hitters. Sanchez has been up and down in his career with Marlins. The issue facing Miami is the fact the team is not generating any offense. They have lost six straight games and have scored just six runs total in those ballgames. The Marlins have failed to score more than two runs during this streak and were held to one run or less in four of the six ballgames. For the season Miami is hitting just .226. Ian Kennedy is a solid pitcher and he will be backed by an offense the produces runs. Miami’s struggles at the plate continues here as the top betting pick is playing the Arizona Diamondbacks as an underdog and before playing the wager take a read at a sports book review.
