Dodgers vs Rockies National League West Baseball Betting

Los Angeles Dodgers: NL West Title chase begins

Try as we may, we can’t remember the last time a blockbuster MLB trade went down this late in the season. Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Nick Punto, and pitcher Josh Beckett, have traded in their Red Sox for Dodger Blue. Gonzo has already paid dividends as he had three hits, one a home run, and drove in four runs in two weekend games. Beckett (5-11 ERA 5.23) gets his first Dodgers start tonight.

Colorado Rockies: Stumbling towards a third straight losing season

It’s been another long season in the Rocks as Colorado is sporting a 51-75 record – good for dead last in the National League West. That said, a recent 10-4 run over MLB cellar dwellers is a slight cause for concern here. Once a stud back in 2007, but more of a dud recently, LHP Jeff Francis (4-4 ERA 5.79) gets the call for the Rockies in this one. Francis has given up 29 runs in his last 38 innings pitched.

Los Angeles vs Colorado Online Betting Canada Game Day Prediction

We like the Dodgers here. Not so much because Beckett is starting, the pitching match-up seems about even, but because we like the added pop in the Dodgers lineup. With 34 games left on their 2012 MLB schedule, the Boys in Blue need to beat up on cellar dwellers like the Rockies. The sportsbook at the Bodog.ca online sports wagering website has the Dodgers as -155 road chalk in this contest – we’ll take it!
