Point Spread: -1.50 | -140.00 LA Dodgers (Away)
The Dodgers have Clayton Kershaw on the mound and I don't see the Reds being able to score enough runs against him to keep this game close. Cincinnati is only scoring the 17th most runs per game and they have the 22nd highest overall team batting average. Kershaw has started this season 4-1 so far with a 2.08 ERA and with a 1.17 road ERA and 0.65 road WHIP. LA is currently scoring the second-most runs per game and they have the ninth-highest overall team batting average. They will hit Greene early and often in this one and the Reds will be forced to turn to their bullpen early which is awful in this hitter friendly ballpark. The Reds with 5 straight losses and the Reds are 7-26 vs teams with winning records. The Dodgers should get the blowout win here so pay the -1.5 runs on Thursday afternoon.
