Afternoon Annihilation - Rickenbach MLB Game #955 Thursday 10* Top Play Los Angeles Dodgers Money Line (+) @ Arizona Diamondbacks @ 3:40 ET - The very first line that popped up on this game when first released yesterday had the Dodgers as a -110 favorite. Now the markets have reacted and the Diamondbacks are as high as a -135 favorite as of early this morning. Of course Arizona has the better record on the year, is 8-0 when off of a loss this season, and has a 4-0 Patrick Corbin on the mound while Los Angeles has an 0-3 Alex Wood on the mound. As usual, I am going contrarian in a spot like this because the odds makers opened LA as a favorite for a reason. Secondly, Wood has pitched much better than his record shows. The Dodgers southpaw has a 0.89 WHIP on the season. As for the Diamondbacks southpaw, he allowed 3 earned runs on 7 hits in less than 7 innings of work in his most recent start. Of course that is still a quality outing and Corbin has pitched well. However, don't be surprised if Wood outduels him today. This is a rematch of an early April game between these two lefties. Corbin won that one but previously he allowed 6 earned runs on 16 hits in less than 11 innings of work in his 2 prior starts versus the Dodgers. As for Wood, previous to April, he had held the Diamondbacks to just 2 earned runs on only 9 hits in 13 innings in his 2 prior starts versus Arizona. LA is 63-36 in day games while the Dbacks are only 54-54. Look for the Dodgers to improve to 8-4 this season when off of a win. 10* LOS ANGELES DODGERS
