MLB betting odds at the sports book have the Los Angeles Dodgers favored at home against the Colorado Rockies on Monday.
While the Dodgers have been great at home this season there will be some gamblers who make a MLB bet on the Rockies in this game simply because Ubaldo Jimenez is expected to get the start for Colorado.
MLB betting still hasn’t been that great on Jimenez this season but he is pitching better and continues to show why the Rockies really like him. He is 6-7 on the season with a 3.83 ERA as MLB betting number show. He pitched fairly well against the Angels in his last start but took the loss. He is 4-3 with a 6.84 ERA in his career against the Dodgers as MLB betting statistics tell us.
Randy Wolf is expected to get the start for the Dodgers on Monday. He is 3-3 with a 3.64 ERA this season as MLB betting statistics tell us. He was terrible in his last outing against the White Sox, going only 3 1/3 innings and giving up five runs. It was a rare bad outing for Wolf who had allowed only one run in his previous 11 innings as MLB betting numbers show. It was the first time he had gone less than five innings all season.
The Rockies have gotten back into the race in the National League under manager Jim Tracy. They probably won’t catch the Dodgers in the National League West but they are in the Wild Card hunt as MLB betting information shows. This series against the Dodgers should give them a good idea of where they are at.
The Rockies have been a solid road team this season, hovering around the .500 mark in MLB betting at the sports book. That is normally a good sign for any team in MLB betting since teams are usually underdogs on the road. The Rockies are in the Top 10 in hitting as MLB bet stats show and their pitching has improved in the last month. It will need to be good in this series against a Los Angeles offense that ranks in the Top 10 in the league in runs scored as MLB betting numbers show. The Dodgers also have a very good pitching staff as they have been 1st or 2nd most of the season as MLB bet information shows.
