Dodgers no longer worst bet in MLB after six-game run

The Los Angeles Dodgers’ six-game winning streak has pulled them from the bottom of the MLB money rankings, making $525.91 for $100 bettors during this run.

The Dodgers picked up win No. 6 with a 6-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies as -185 home favorites Thursday. They are outscoring opponents 28-14 during this stretch and are currently -14.61 units on the season after sitting at -21.07 units just one week ago.

Yasiel Puig continues to be the catalyst for L.A.’s sudden turnaround. The rookie outfielder gave the Dodgers the win versus Philadelphia with a two-run single in the seventh inning Thursday and is hitting .427 with seven home runs and 16 RBIs in just 23 games with the big-league club.

The Dodgers are -144 home favorites versus Philadelphia Friday night. Los Angeles sends left-hander Chris Capuano to the mound (2-4, 4.09 ERA) while the Phillies counter with southpaw John Lannan (0-2, 5.84 ERA). Friday’s total is set at eight runs.

The Dodgers have won six of the last eight meetings between these clubs.
