My Prediction: Last night Hiroki Kuroda pitched 7 shutout innings as the Dodgers won game 1 of this weekend series 5-0. Tonight we have a terrific pitching matchup. Kershaw and Weaver are both Cy Young candidates this year. Kershaw has been brilliant in his last 3 starts allowing only 3 earned runs in 25 innings while Weaver has been even better, allowing only 2 ER in 23 innings. Kershaw pitched a complete game last Sunday in defeating Weaver 3-2 in Dodger Stadium. The Angels have only scored 1 run in their last 2 games. It will be tough to break out of that slump tonight. The total is set pretty low at 6, but I can see this being another 3-2 game like last Sunday when these two pitchers faced each other.
Under 6 -110
