The Los Angeles Dodgers play in Major League Baseball’s National League West division. They were established in 1883 in Brooklyn, New York, before moving to Los Angeles in time for the 1958 season. Formerly known as the Atlantics, the team became known as the Dodgers after the Brooklyn pedestrians who dodged streetcars in the city. Once the team move to Los Angeles, it only took one season before they won the World Series, the second in their history,
LA Dodgers have gone on to win a total of six World Series titles, although they have not added to their tally since 1988, which is also the year they won the last of their nine National League pennants.
The Dodgers have a number of MLB firsts credited to them including being the first team to use batting helmets (1941), the largest single game attendance (115,300 in 2008) which is a world record, being the first MLB team to open an office in Asia (2009), and the $2 billion paid in 2012 was a North American record for buying a sports team.
One of the longest-standing rivalries in American baseball involves the Dodger. Their rivalry with the San Francisco Giants is the stuff of legends, and stems from when both teams were based in New York City, which is one of the reasons for the fierce rivalry with the New York Yankees.

How To Win At Los Angeles Dodgers Betting
One of the best ways to make money betting on the Los Angeles Dodgers is to back them to win on home soil. In 2015, the Dodgers went 55-26 on their way to the divisional title, a record only matched by the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League, with nobody matching or bettering it in the American League.
Ranked 19th in the MLB for batting in 2015, the Dodgers need to improve if they are to challenge for honors. An average of .250 is not the best, neither is 187 home runs, showing they need more power in their batting line-up.
Pitching, however, is where the Dodgers shine. Fifth in the MLB in 2015 with an opponents batting average of only .242, which was bettered only by two teams, shows how strong the Dodgers pitchers are; don’t expect them to give away a lot of runs.
Clayton Kershaw was ranked number one in the MLB for pitching with an ERA of 1.57 and a WHIP of a mere 0.67. If he doesn’t play, the Dodgers are severely weakened so bear that in mind.
The Dodgers will hope Adrian Gonzalez repeats his 2015 form where he was awesome in the field. 116 assists helped him be ranked 13th in the MLB, while only six errors was among the lowest in the league. Defensively, the Dodger are great.
Look for special betting lines when the Dodgers play the Giants as bookmakers attempt to drive more business their way on the back of one of the longest running rivalries in MLB.
