Despite posting two consecutive seasons with National League pennants the Los Angeles Dodgers have been among the worst values in MLB. Few teams have won more games while losing more money with baseball betting games. Once again, the Dodgers are an overwhelming favorite to win the National League West. Yet their ability to get the money consistently remains a problem. Of great concern to sharps is the flood of ignorant casual money towards LA. Colorado has been a surprise playoff team the past two years. Most important of all the Rockies have been a much better wagering value.

Dodgers vs. Rockies TV Coverage: ESPN
Probable starting pitchers are Julio Urias for Los Angeles and Chad Bettis of Colorado. Of great concern is that neither team has been strong in the bullpen at the start of the season. Colorado was a mediocre 16th in the Major League Baseball rankings for bullpen earned run average. Los Angeles was a subpar 24th for bullpen ERA.
Left hander Julio Urias is only 22 years old but a veteran that is entering his fourth season in the big leagues. However, a variety of issues have sidelined Urias for the past two seasons. His career record of 5-4 with a 3.54 earned run average and a WHIP of 1.40. Urias is still considered a potential phenom that can only add to what is considered to be one of the best pitching staffs in the game.
Colorado right hander Chad Bettis is 29 years old and has been a mainstay of the Rockies staff since 2013. Last season Bettis was 5-2 with a 5.01 earned run average with a WHIP of 1.40.
Stats to Consider
Late on Los Angeles has been in the red for away matchups. LA has failed to pay in five of their last eight baseball betting games on the road. Three of their last five in that role went under the total. By contrast Colorado has thrived as a betting value at Coors Field. Just five losses in their last 18 home games prove the Rockies reliability on the MLB board. Six of their last nine home matchups went over the total.
Team vs. Team
Now Los Angeles has had the recent sportsbook advantage in their series with the Rockies. Eight of the last 12 games between the Dodgers and Rockies have gone to LA. Just two of the last 10 in this matchup have gone over the total. But at Coors Field the Rockies have been a much more reliable play. Colorado has come away with the cash in four of their last six at home against Los Angeles. Five of the last six between these clubs at Colorado went under the total.
Matchup to Watch
Certainly, Colorado is a solid home value for baseball betting games. Despite their strong success over the past two seasons even Los Angeles struggles at Coors Field.
