MLB Betting Trends
The Rockies are 17-38 in their last 55 road games. Colorado is 0-5 in the last five Gonzalez road starts.
The Dodgers are 48-14 in their last 62 home games. Los Angeles is 19-7 in the last 26 meetings.
The Dodgers hammered Lambert and now the Rockies are trotting out an even worse pitcher in Gonzalez to get obliterated. Honestly, this moneyline could be even bigger. I'm fully on board with LA here and am taking a shot on the runline as I think Gonzalez gets chased quickly.
