MLB Betting: Colorado Rockies vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

The Colorado Rockies have spent the past few seasons paring down payroll.  Colorado is not even trying to beat the MLB betting odds.  Of course, they claim to be rebuilding for the future.  But that is a hard sell to fans and gamblers.  Colorado ranks in the low rent district of the MLB payroll rankings.  By contrast, the Dodgers have the biggest payroll in baseball.  And they have enjoyed a National League West dynasty for over a decade.  Los Angeles hosts the Rockies on Tuesday night in a National League West mismatch.

Rockies at Dodgers CashBet Wagering Analysis  

At the beginning of sportsbook wagering, action will be a flood of money on the Dodgers.  Los Angeles is the most popular team on the board in normal circumstances.  But a home game against a weak opponent means the betting window will face a flood of casual money.  Naturally, oddsmakers know nobody wants to step into Los Angeles with a weak Rockies team.  Therefore, the guys making the lines will charge a premium price on the Dodgers.  But it is not likely to matter much.

Wise Guys have their own predicament to work through.  Sharps do not lay massive prices on favorites.  Naturally, that is why they are called Wise Guys.  But sharps don’t ever set their bankrolls deliberately on fire.  Thus, their options are limited to a run line possibility on the Dodgers.

Colorado Falling Like Rockies

Colorado has failed to beat the betting on baseball odds in six of their previous ten games.  Also, the Rockies went under the total in just one of their last six games.  Colorado is 34-44 with 40-38 over the total.  Specifically, on the road, the Rockies are 12-23 with 17-17-1 over and under the total.  Colorado ranks 11th for run production, 22nd for home runs, 28th for earned run average, 30th for fewest errors committed, and 29th for bullpen earned run average.

Dodgers Blue Slightly in the Red

Late on, the Dodgers have beaten the MLB betting lines in seven of their last ten games.  Only two of their previous nine games went over the total.  Los Angeles is 49-28 with 30-39-8 under the total.  At Dodger Stadium, LA is 23-12 with 16-15-4 over the total.  Of great concern is that the Dodgers are a few units in the red for the season.  Cause by the massive prices charged for their games.  But the run line alternative is in the black.  To show LA is 45-32 vs. the run line.

Rockies at Dodgers on the Hill

Colorado is expected to start German Marquez.  So far, Marquez has a baseball betting record of 4-6 with a 5.89 earned run average and 1.54 WHIP.  Closer Danial Bard has been one of the few points of light on the Rockies this season.  Bard has 15 saves in 17 opportunities.  In sum, Bard is 3-2 with a 2.12 earned run average and 0.94 WHIP.

Mitch White is the probable Dodgers starter.  White is 1-1 with a 3.93 earned run average and 1.19 WHIP.  Closer Craig Kimbrel has saved 14 games in 16 chances.  He is 1-3 with a 3.81 earned run average and 1.42 WHIP.

As mentioned earlier, the Dodgers are too expensive in the money line.  But LA has shown solid MLB gambling value on the run line.
