Heading into game 2 of this Divisional Round, the Dodgers are the heavy favorite on the moneyline. Although Yu Darvish threw the ball wall the last time he faced off against Los Angeles, look for Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers to take the 2-0 lead in the series. I like Los Angeles on the moneyline.
