Los Angeles Dodgers 2021 Season
The Dodgers’ quest at repeating as World Series Champions fell short in 2021 after losing to the eventual champions in the Atlanta Braves in the NLCS.
Returning to the World Series for a fourth time in five years looks to be even harder this upcoming season. Max Scherzer and Corey Seager left in free agency, and LA’s payroll is going to limit what they can do in the market.
Where do they go from here to get over the top again? See all of the Dodgers odds, as well their win total, championship odds, and much more.
Betting on the Los Angeles Dodgers
Dodgers Spread (Run Line)
When betting on baseball, you’ll be faced with three standard options: the moneyline, over/under and run line.
The run line is a bet on the margin of victory, like a point spread. But because baseball is low scoring, the spread will almost always be -1.5 for the favorite and +1.5 for the underdog. The payouts for each will just be adjusted based on each team’s strength.
Here’s a brief example of a run line for a hypothetical Dodgers game:
- New York Yankees (+1.5)
- Los Angeles Dodgers (-1.5)
As shown above, the Dodgers are favored by 1.5 runs against the Yankees; the minus sign (-) indicates Los Angeles is the favorite, while a plus sign (+) is used to denote the underdog. Bettors who wanted to back Los Angeles here would be “laying” those 1.5 runs, meaning for their bets to cash the Dodgers would need to win by two runs or more. Bettors who selected the Yankees +1.5 would win if New York won outright or kept a loss to 1 run.
The Dodgers were 82-80 on run lines in 2021, covering 50.6 percent of the time – putting them in the top half of the league.
Many first time bettors are wary of run line bets, especially when riding with the hometown team. In that case, moneyline wagers are often seen as the safer way to go. A moneyline bet is a bet on who wins the game -- no run line involved.
Let’s use the same example from before to understand the moneyline better:
- New York Yankees +150
- Los Angeles Dodgers -180
Just as with run lines, the minus sign (-) signifies a team is favored, while the plus sign (+) means a team is the underdog. The moneyline odds, written in American odds format here, indicate how big or small a favorite that team is, written in increments of $100. For example, to win $100 on the Dodgers, a bettor would need to risk $180. On the flip side, a $100 bet on the Yankees would net $150 if they pulled the upset.
The Dodgers went 106-56 in 2021, putting them in second place in the NL West and giving them the second best record in the league.
Odds can differ from sportsbook to sportsbook, so always make sure you shop for the best line with The Action Network app.
Betting on a team to win or cover a run line isn’t the only type of wager allowed on MLB games. Almost all sportsbooks will offer a total on the game, also known as an over/under. This bet is not on the winner of the contest, but on the number of runs the two teams will combine to score; sportsbooks hang a number, and bettors can wager either over or under that total.
If the number for our hypothetical Dodgers-Yankees matchup was 8 runs, over bettors would require 9 points or more to cash their tickets, while those who bet the under would need 7 or fewer runs. If the two teams scored exactly 8 runs between them, that bet would push and all wagers would be refunded.
Dodgers totals in 2021 were in the bottom 10 of the league when betting the over, hitting at a 71-81-10 clip.
Some bettors find more entertainment and success betting on more specific outcomes than the result of the game. Prop bets cover a wide market of wagers on player stats, discrete in-game events, and any style of yes/no question. Many props are bets on specific players and their performance, such as betting Cody Bellinger over 1.5 hits on a given night, or betting that Clayton Kershaw will strike out over 9.5 batters. Some props can be shorter term, such as betting on the number of runs scored in the first five innings or who will hit a home run. Offerings tend to vary depending on the sportsbook, so use our sportsbook reviews to find the best bet for you.
Expectations are high right now in Los Angeles, so bettors will have to shop for the best line to get good odds on Dodgers futures bets. Futures are bets that focus on long term outcomes, like the Dodgers to win the NL West, win the National League Pennant, win the World Series, or even in dividual awards like winning league MVP.
