Los Angeles Dodgers Fantasy Spin
Enrique Hernandez went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a pair of runs scored in the Dodgers’ 5-3 win over the division-rival Giants on Wednesday. Hernandez led-off the bottom of the first inning with a mammoth blast -- his third long-ball of the season -- to left field off Giants’ southpaw Derek Holland. He also doubled in the fifth before drawing a walk and eventually coming around to score the go-ahead run on a two-run double by David Freese in the seventh. The 27-year-old lefty-masher has gotten off to a scorching-hot start, hitting .435/.500/.870 with seven runs scored and six RBI in 28 plate appearances. He’s locked in as the Dodgers’ everyday second baseman and their primary leadoff hitter against left-handed pitching. He needs to be owned in all fantasy formats moving forward.
Colorado Rockies Fantasy Spin
Chris Iannetta was responsible for the game’s lone run, delivering a pinch-hit solo bomb Wednesday in the Rockies’ 11-inning win over Tampa Bay. Iannetta didn’t start Wednesday’s game but all he needed was one at-bat to be the hero. The veteran backstop broke a scoreless tie in the 11th by sending Chaz Roe’s one-out offering into the left field seats at cavernous Tropicana Field. A .231 lifetime hitter in the big leagues, the 35-year-old isn’t someone fantasy owners should be targeting, especially while he splits time with Tony Wolters behind the plate.
MLB Betting Trends
The Dodgers are 11-2 in their last 13 games when their opponent allows two runs or less in its previous game.
The Rockies have lost 11 of Tyler Anderson’s last 15 home starts and are 7-20 in his last 27 outings overall.
The Rockies have been a terrible bet when Anderson faces the Dodgers. They’re 1-9 in his last 10 outings versus Los Angeles overall and did not win at any point in Anderson’s last five home starts versus the Dodgers. Los Angeles is also a perfect 5-0 in the last five meetings between these two teams.
The Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers -135
