Dodgers Falter Once Again as Massive Favorites

Upsetting Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers as +268 underdogs last night, the Rockies handed the NL West leaders a seventh straight loss. The Blue Crew has now scored just three runs in its last four contests and dropped 12 of its last 13 games. Can Dave Roberts get this ship turned around before October?

SHARK BITES
  • The Dodgers are 0-13 on the runline in their last 13 games.
  • The Rockies are 2-11 SU in their last 13 games on the road against the Dodgers.
  • The total has gone OVER in 8 of the Dodgers’ last 11 games.

Yu Darvish (8-11, 4.09 ERA) will attempt to end the skid for the Dodgers tonight but with his team hitting just .202 in the month of September, he’ll have to perform much better than he has in his three starts, giving up five total home runs.

Although Darvish has not been good since being dealt to LA, his opponent tonight, German Marquez, hasn’t been much better of late. He’s allowed at least two runs in all of his last five starts and he has yet to face the Dodgers this season.

This evening’s total opened at 8 and considering how both starters have been hurling, that number seems far too low.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The moneyline was hovering in the range of -234 for the Los Angeles Dodgers in this one over at Bovada. The OVER/UNDER number was sitting near 8 at 5Dimes.
