Sunday MLB Free Play from Doc’s Sports Take #961 Los Angeles Dodgers over Arizona Diamondbacks (Sunday, 4:10pm EST) Their haven’t been a lot of good betting opportunities involving the Los Angeles Dodgers so far this season, but today’s matchup definitely provides some value. Dan Haren has rediscovered his form from a few years back and looks primed for a big season. In two starts this season he has a miniscule 0.75 ERA and 0.67 WHIP to go along with a 10-1 K/BB ratio. He obviously won’t continue to be that dominant, but the 33-year hasn’t looked this good in three years. On the other side is right-hander Trevor Cahill, who has seemingly lost his way for the Diamondbacks. In three starts, Cahill is 0-3 with a 7.90 ERA and 2.05 WHIP. Walks have been his biggest issues, as he’s given up eight free passes in 13.2 innings of work. The pressure will definitely be on Cahill in this start, as he’s on the verge of losing his spot in the rotation. And when your back is up against the wall like this, the last thing you want to see is a dangerous offense like the Dodgers. Matt Kemp is back in the lineup and is swinging the bat well, which adds another weapon to a team that is loaded. If it’s tight late in the game, I have much more confidence in the Los Angeles bullpen which has a bevy of arms that they can call on. With advantages in every phase of the game, we get the Dodgers at a very cheap price here.
