As if you needed another reason to watch Clayton Kershaw and Mike Trout in tonight’s Angels-Dodgers game: The two young stars are now the odds-on favorites to win the MVP award in their respective leagues, per online oddsmaker Bovada.
Kershaw enters tonight’s game unbeaten in his last 11 starts since June 2, going 10-0 with a 0.94 ERA, five complete games, two shutouts, 104 strikeouts (against only eight walks) and a .165 opponents’ batting average (49-for-297) in that span. A win tonight would give Kershaw the longest winning streak of his career and match Orel Hershiser’s team record run from July 18 to Oct. 2, 1985.
