Before Betting on Rockies vs Dodgers July 6

There’s an old adage that anything can happen on any given night in the MLB but that’s apparently not the case in the Rockies vs Dodgers July 6 matchup. Offshore oddsmakers are essentially calling this a Los Angeles lock, pricing them above -300 on the moneyline and even better than -160 with the run line.

The odds kind of make sense here, L.A is in first in the West at 51-29 while the Rockies bring up the rear at 35-46. The Dodgers have tallied a 5-3 and a 5-2 win so far in this series, but not really the blowouts one would expect in a game between two teams at opposite ends of the division.

The Rockies did take two of three from the Dodgers last week at Coors Field, and have gone a respectable 4-4 vs. Los Angeles this season while actually holding a slight 35-33 run scored advantage. Jose Urena is getting a spot start on Wednesday for his first big league action since the end of April after being designated for assignment – which is one of the big reasons Colorado is such a lofty underdog here.

L.A has gotten wins as -276 and -221 offshore odds favorites this series and now they’ll turn to Mitch White (1-1, 3.93 ERA) to try to complete the sweep. White is starting for the seventh straight game after beginning the season coming out of the bullpen, and had a 3.38 ERA in four June outings.

It’s a tough position for Colorado putting a spot starter on the mound in the Rockies vs Dodgers July 6 matchup, but it’s a general rule of thumb to avoid backing a team even at -200 let alone -300 or higher, even the Dodgers. Colorado would be worth a small play for a nice return on investment, and this being a higher scoring game seems like the most likely O/U result.
