Los Angeles Dodgers at Colorado Rockies

Rockies and Dodgers complete a three game set at Coors Field with Colorado sending southpaw Jorge De La Rosa to the mound with a 15-6 record, 3.33 ERA and on a perfect 5-0 stretch. The port-side hurler's best numbers have come at Coors Field. That success is evident by his 23-5 team start record at home the past four years including a sparkling 11-2 TSR this season. Dodgers' counter with Volquez who was recently acquired from Padres. The right-hander making his first start as a Dodger brings a 9-10 record, 5.97 ERA to the hill. De La Rosa obviously has better numbers on his side but what will catch sports bettors attention is that Rockies are 1-10 in De La Rosa's 11 career starts vs the Dodgers including 1-4 at Coors Field. That said, those betting jitters will soon dissipate knowing Volquez has an 0-6 TSR skid vs Colorado, a 3-9 life-time TSR vs Rockies including a 1-6 at Coors Field. Add in Volquez's 2-7 TSR in September, De La Rosa's perfect 12-0 TSR after a team loss the previous night the best call here is Colorado.

MLB Odds and Picks – Expect some runs in the Bronx
By: The Linemakers 
Sportingnews.com

LAS VEGAS -- The Yankees are only 2.5 games out in the AL wild-card chase, and their Tuesday night come-from-behind win against the White Sox’s best pitcher had the same look of many of those Yankees playoff teams from the past. They put five runs on the board in the eighth inning – three of Chicago's best pitcher, Chris Sale – to improve their hopes of making the playoffs for the 18th time in 20 seasons.

An untimely skid by the Rays, losers in eight of their last 10, has opened the door for New York, which has won four of its last five. The LVH SuperBook currently has the Yankees 30-to-1 to win the World Series, and those long odds somehow seem attractive.

Tonight they’ll send CC Sabathia to the mound to face the White Sox, and he’ll be a key figure for the Yankees down the stretch. He has a 7.38 ERA since the All-Star break, the worst in baseball among pitchers with at least seven starts, but has been able to pick up wins in three of his last four starts. And September has typically been his best month over his career.

If the Yankees can get their first home sweep over the White Sox since 2009, as they should, then they can set their sights on the meat of their remaining schedule, which will ultimately determine their fate for the season.

They start a four-game series at home against Boston on Thursday, go to Baltimore for four, and then to Fenway Park for their final three games of the season against the Red Sox. That’s a murderous stretch, but if they can come away 7-4 over that it, that may be all they need to carry some momentum through weaker scheduling to close out the year and gain the final wild-card spot.

In between series against the Blue Jays and Giants and closing the season at Houston, the Yanks have a chance to make something happen against the Rays Sept. 24-26. If they can come out of the Rays series at least tied for the final wild card, you have to like their chances at Houston for the final three games while the Rays play at Toronto.

While we like the Yankees to win tonight, we would never suggest laying -190. But we should see a lot of runs scored with Sabathia on the hill for New York and a pitcher making his first MLB start for Chicago.

Erik Johnson makes his big-league debut tonight in the Stadium. He is considered one of the Sox’s top pitching prospects and recorded a 12-3 record with a 1.96 ERA between Double-A and Triple-A this season.

The anemic White Sox offense, meanwhile, has been one of the best UNDER plays in baseball this season, but they are currently on a run of four straight OVERs.

Wednesday selections:

White Sox/Yankees OVER 8.5 (-115)

Dodgers/Rockies OVER 10 (-115)

Second-half record: 78-78 (+484)
