Bet on MLB – Dodgers at Rockies

May 30, 2011 MLB Baseball

It should be a good pitching matchup on Tuesday night as Los Angeles visits Colorado and you can bet on MLB right now at SBG.

The Dodgers will be going with Clayton Kershaw while the Rockies counter with Jhoulys Chacin.  The Dodgers have had some success on the road at Colorado and could be a good wager in MLB betting in this game.

Los Angeles Starter – Clayton Kershaw
The Dodgers send their ace for his second start of the season. He was great in the opener as the Dodgers beat the Giants 2-1. Kershaw didn’t allow a run in seven innings. He struck out nine and walked just one.  The Dodgers are simply excellent when Kershaw is on the mound. And they are even better against NL West teams with Kershaw on the mound as they are 14-3 in the past seven games. Kershaw has struggled at Coors Field but he still has a winning record of 3-2 there but his ERA at 5.59 is high.

Colorado Starter – Jhoulys Chacin
The Rockies will send one of their young stars to the mound on Tuesday. Chacin was 9-11 last season with a 3.28 ERA. He has a career record of 3-3 against the Dodgers.  Los Angeles has won 11 of their last 15 games at Colorado including 6-3 at Coors Field last year.

Rockies Third Game
The Rockies have had a weird start to the season as they had Sunday’s game against Arizona postponed because of snow and then they had Monday off.  The Rockies are 1-1 on the season while the Dodgers come in at 3-1.

Game Numbers
The Dodgers are 4-1 in MLB betting in their last 5 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Dodgers are 4-0 in Kershaw’s last 4 starts. The Rockies are 36-17 in their last 53 home games vs. a left-handed starter. The Rockies are 37-18 in their last 55 home games. The Rockies are 2-10 in their last 12 vs. the National League West. The Dodgers are 6-0 in Kershaw’s last 6 starts vs. the Rockies.

The Under is 7-2 in the Dodgers last 9 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Under is 5-1 in Kershaw’s last 6 starts overall. The Under is 5-1 in the Rockies last 6 overall. The Under is 10-3 in Chacin’s last 13 starts vs. the National League West. The Under could be the way to go when you bet on MLB on Tuesday.
