GLENDALE Ariz. -- The folks at Bovada have released a series of over/under predictions for the 2015 MLB season, including individual statistics for several Dodgers.

Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, the overwhelming favorite to win the 2015 National League Cy Young Award at 1/1 odds, has some understandably gaudy numbers to shoot for, with over/unders of 18½ wins, a 2.20 ERA, and 235½ strikeouts. Kershaw's average season the last four years - during which he has captured three Cy Young Awards and a second-place finish - has been 18 wins, a 2.11 ERA and 237 strikeouts.

Yasiel Puig has some tempting over bets, with his over/unders set at a .299 batting average, 22½ home runs, 80½ RBI and 95½ runs.

Zack Greinke has some solid numbers to shoot for as well, with over/unders set at 15 wins, a 3.05 ERA and 189½ strikeouts. In his two years in Los Angeles, which includes Greinke missing over a month with a broken clavicle, he has averaged 16 wins, a 2.68 ERA and 177½ strikeouts.

Adrian Gonzalez, who led the major leagues with 116 RBI in 2014, has an over/under of 100½ RBI to go along with 24½ home runs and a .290 batting average. Gonzalez has driven in five straight seasons and six of the last seven years, with 99 RBI in the one year he missed during that span.

Newcomer Jimmy Rollins is set with over/unders of a .250 batting average (he hit .243 in 2014 and has hit .249 the last three years) and 24½ stolen bases.

Rounding out the Dodgers over/unders are Howie Kendrick hitting .289, Carl Crawford at .285, and Brandon McCarthy at 11 wins.
