Pirates versus Dodgers April 11, 2012

Major League Baseball is back. Spring is here and that means teams will look to get off to a good start to help get them through their long summer. Tonight the Los Angeles Dodgers host the Pittsburgh Pirates at Chavez Ravine. Thus far, this season, the Dodgers appear to like their new owners as they are off to a 4-1 record. The Dodgers won three of their first four games on the road and defeated the Pirates last night. Three of the Dodgers first five games have ended OVER the run total.

The Pirates are 2-2 on the season. They were 2-1 in their opening series at home and their loss last night to the Dodgers was their first road game. The run total for the Pirates has ended OVER once and UNDER 3 times this season.

Last night the Dodgers defeated the Pirates 2-1 behind Clayton Kershaw the team’s top left-hander and ace. Tonight’s matchup will pit Chad Billingsley for the Dodgers (1-0) against Erik Bedard for the Pirates. Offensively the Dodgers count on Matt Kemp. Kemp has knocked in a run in all five of the Dodgers’ games this season, and dating back to the end of last season, Kemp has knocked in at least one run in the last nine Dodger regular season games.

The Pirates offense has had trouble getting on track due to facing the Phillies Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee and then taking on the Dodgers and Kershaw. Tonight however, look for the Pirate bats to wake up and a few more runs to cross the plate.

The current line has the over at 6.5 with the Dodgers favored and at -145. Take the OVER in this as both teams are due to break out of a scoring drought and put big numbers on the board.
