Betting Impact:

The fact that the betting support is in favor of the Dodgers is not at all surprising, considering L.A. is one of baseball's most public teams. However, the fact that the Dodgers line has only risen from -143 to -150 (according to BettingPros consensus odds) is very surprising. Usually when there is that much of a discrepancy in money oddsmakers will move the line much more drastically. Thus, either respected sharp money has come in on the Diamondbacks, or oddsmakers are comfortable rooting for the Diamondbacks.
