Stephen Nover's MLB Thursday Top Ticket
Washington vs. LA Dodgers,
10/03/2019 20:37 EDT,
Score: 0 - 6
Money Line: -165 LA Dodgers
I want the Dodgers going for me in this opening National League playoff series.
LA is rested, has the better offense and bullpen. I also like the starting pitching matchup from a Dodgers perspective, too.
Walker Buehler has been dominant when pitching at Dodger Stadium going 6-1 with a 2.86 ERA there. The Dodgers think so much of Buehler they started him ahead of Clayton Kershaw. The Dodgers are 15-3 when Buehler has pitching the opener of a series.
Corbin has been much better at home than on the road where his away record is 6-5 with a 4.18 ERA compared to 8-2 with a 2.40 ERA at Nationals Park. Corbin is squaring off against an LA squad that set an NL record with 279 home runs and led the NL in runs.
