The Dodgers are still playing incredibly well right now, and we think that this is a great spot to back them once again on the MLB betting lines. Jair Jurrjens is the man that is going to be on the bump for the Braves, and that’s not generally good news for their fans. If not for the fact that he has gotten just a slew of run support, Jurrjens would be 0-3 right now. He has allowed seven hits in all three of his starts, and he hasn’t even pitched into the sixth inning in any of those games. Jurrjens has an 8.10 ERA, and his velocity is way down this year as well. Meanwhile, Chris Capuano is going to be taking the ball from Manager Don Mattingly on Monday. He has been consistent, going 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA thus far this year. The lefty isn’t going to put up sparkling numbers on a week-by-week basis, but especially in this stadium, the fact that he is a fly ball pitcher isn’t going to hurt him all that much as it would in other parks. This is a great spot to back an underrated pitcher against one that is severely badly priced based upon his name.
