Los Angeles is 4-0 in game three of series, 39-14 as a home favorite, and 39-16 in Kershaw’s last 55 starts. Texas is 8-1 in their last nine interleague games, 20-7 in their last 27 games, and 6-0 in Rodriguez’s last six starts as an underdog.
The odds here on the Rangers are just way too good to pass up and while this isn’t an “All In” type of play, it is well worth taking a chance.
