Fading the Dodgers Has Been a Get-Rich-Quick Scheme

Dave Roberts and the Dodgers experienced an eighth straight loss last night and it’s starting to look like they did indeed peak too early. $100 Bettors who have been fading the Blue Crew during this horrendous 1-13 straight up skid have profited just under $2000 – hilarious.

SHARK BITES
  • The Dodgers are 0-14 on the runline during their 1-13 SU slump.
  • The total has gone OVER in 9 of the Dodgers’ last 12 games overall.
  • Alex Wood has allowed 5 total home runs in his last 2 starts.

Nothing has been going right for the Dodgers but they have a severe edge in the pitching matchup this evening and the offense ended a bad drought last night by scoring four runs. If you like them to end their losing streak, however, it will require you to lay a decent amount of chalk with the Boys of Summer – decidedly not of fall – opening the contest as -232 moneyline favorites.

Alex Wood (14-2, 2.57 ERA) is the biggest reason for tonight’s lack of juice on the Dodgers’ side of things but if he keeps pitching like he has in his last two starts, he could pay off Rockies’ bettors. The former Atlanta lefty has allowed seven earned runs in his last 12 innings of work and the Rockies have been hammering southpaws this season (.281 average).

This Dodgers’ slump can’t last forever but it could last another night and the value on the Rockies makes them tough a fade at Chavez Ravine.
