It is the last game of a three-game MLB betting series between the two teams and it is the final game of a six-game homestand for the Dodgers. Gamblers who bet on MLB action may want to know that last season the Dodgers took 10 of 18 matchups against the Rockies including 5 of the 9 at Dodger Stadium.
MLB betting scheduling information shows that the Rockies are playing the 5th game of an 8-game road trip. Last year against the Dodgers the Rockies were outscored 97-81 as MLB betting stats indicate. The Rockies were 31-50 on the road last season which meant that gamblers who bet on MLB action lost money if they took Colorado on the road. The Dodgers were 48-33 at home last season but they really didn’t make MLB betting gamblers any money since they were normally favored in their home contests.
Colorado just has not played well away from home in recent seasons and they have not been a great bet versus the MLB odds. That MLB betting trend is nothing new either as the Rockies usually have a different personality on the road. MLB betting stats show that Colorado scores fewer runs and normally pitches better away from home simply because of the locale. MLB betting information tells us that the Rockies are not likely to score as many runs this season anyway since they lost Matt Holliday in the offseason to Oakland. The key for the Rockies this season in MLB betting will be finding a solid replacement for Holliday and getting much better pitching than they got a year ago.
The Dodgers have been all about pitching in recent seasons but with Manny Ramirez in the lineup everyday the Dodgers are a lot bigger offensive threat in MLB betting. Simply taking the Dodgers under at home doesn’t always work as you bet on MLB games. In this series against the Rockies the teams averaged almost 10 runs per game last season versus MLB odds but that does take into account the games in Colorado.
