MLB line movement for August 2
Patrick Everson

Clayton Kershaw makes his 2020 debut Sunday, when the Dodgers face the Diamondbacks. Caesars sportsbooks opened Los Angeles a -160 road favorite, with Arizona +150 for a 4:10 p.m. ET start.

MLB betting odds are on the board and seeing some early action for the Sunday slate. Clayton Kershaw makes his 2020 debut for the Los Angeles Dodgers, while a Houston Astros-Los Angeles Angels clash is among other noteworthy games, and the nightcap is the conclusion of the Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees.

Multiple oddsmakers provided insights on MLB opening lines and early line movement, sharp money and public betting for Sunday’s contests. Covers will update this action report with MLB sharp picks vs. public bets and line movement throughout the day.

MLB line movement

Kershaw was supposed to throw on Opening Day, but a sore back led to him being a last-minute scratch. With the left-hander on the hill Sunday for a 4:10 p.m. ET first pitch, the Dodgers opened -160 against Merrill Kelly and the host Arizona Diamondbacks (+150).

Multi-talented Shohei Ohtani, who was absolutely blitzed last week in his first pitching appearance since 2018, takes the ball again for the Angels against Josh James and the Astros. Los Angeles is a +110 home underdog at Caesars books, with Houston a -120 favorite in a 4:10 p.m. ET meeting.

Neither of the above games saw any line movement by late Saturday night.

The Yankees are out to a 6-1 start and looking for a three-game home sweep of the Red Sox in a 7:08 p.m. ET contest. Caesars held off on the opener for this contest, as Boston hadn’t yet designated a starter to counter New York’s James Paxton.
