MLB betting features the most profitable team that you can bet on sports with against one of the hottest in a National League west division showdown from Los Angeles. MLB betting on the Los Angeles Dodgers has been the best deal on the board while the Colorado Rockies have been a virtual ATM machine to bet on sports with lately.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been one of the most valuable MLB sports betting commodities since Joe Torre took over as manager last year. They have been in firm command of the NL west and far and away the best money maker on the board to bet on sports with, although they have cooled off somewhat from their earlier MLB betting pace. The Dodgers are one of the most balanced teams on the board in MLB betting as they ranked 8th overall for run production and a stellar 2nd overall in staff earned run average. Jonathan Broxton has been a important MLB betting asset out of the bullpen with a 2.27 earned run average and 18 saves. Juan Pierre leads the attack as he had a team best .326 average with 18 stolen bases. Andre Eithier led LA in home runs with 11.
From June 4 through June 24 the Colorado Rockies went on a MLB betting rampage with 17 payoffs out of 20 games played. The MLB betting run put them right back into the race for wild card contention. The Rockies have been a good MLB betting commodity on the road with a .500 record and a profit as a consistent underdog in that role. Colorado’s strength is their offense which was ranked 6th overall in run production.
The scheduled probable starters for this one are right hander Jason Hammel for the Rockies and left hander Clayton Kershaw for the Dodgers. Both have been up and down this season.
Hammel had a 4-3 record and a 4.41 earned run average while Kershaw was 4-5 but had a nice 3.76 earned run average. Kershaw was highly effective in his last 3 starts with a 1.76 earned run average.
Bet on the MLBGamblers might feel compelled to place their baseball bets on San Francisco. Rival evaluators who scouted the Giants’ offensive work during spring training all left thinking the same thing; pitchers from opposing teams will have to dig deep. Similar to the Kansas City Royals of the previous two years, the Giants are not known for striking out too often.
