Rickenbach MLB *7* LA Dodgers Money Line -140 @ Pittsburgh @ 7:05 ET - The opportunity to get the hottest pitcher in baseball at a reasonable price like this is one I won't pass up on. With the Dodgers on the road facing a solid team and a solid pitcher, the price on this one opened up in the -140 range for LA. That is a fantastic value, and one you likely will not see again during this hot streak, that affords the opportunity to grab a sizzling Clayton Kershaw. Not only has the Dodgers southpaw gone 37 innings without allowing a run, he's also struck out 45 batters in his last 34 innings. Kershaw has simply been masterful and he's backed by an offense that "got healthy" against the Phillies. The Dodgers are off of a 10-8 win at Philly last night and have now gone 6-1 in their last 7 games and averaged 6 runs per game in those 6 victories. The Pittsburgh bats are unlikely to be as hot tonight. Not only must the Pirates lineup deal with Kershaw in phenomenal form right now, they also could be trying to "shake the cobwebs" out a bit. They were off on Thursday and their Monday game got rained out. Additionally, the Pirates were shutout on Tuesday and they only managed to score 3 runs in each of their first two games this month. Take the hotter hitters here along with the hottest pitcher in baseball and lay the short road price here in a game that should be a dominating win for the road team. Play the LA Dodgers on the money line as a *7* selection Friday.
