Dodgers Mariners Betting Tips – Dodgers Riding High Heading In To Interleague

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 6/6/2012 2:51:56 PM

Fans of the Los Angeles Dodgers understand what it is like for their baseball team to go through tough times. Fortunately for online sportsbook fans in Los Angeles, the Dodgers are in first place in the National League West, while the NHL’s Kings are on the verge of hoisting the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history. Things aren’t nearly as cheerful in Seattle these days, with its former basketball franchise now on the verge of reaching the NBA finals in Oklahoma City, and the Mariners trying to climb out of the basement of the American League West heading in to a tough three-game interleague set against Los Angeles this weekend.

While the Dodgers have been one of the more complete teams in the NL all season, ranked in the top half of the league in both runs scored and allowed, Seattle has struggled in both areas. Surprisingly, despite a .236 team batting average that ranks 27th in the majors, the Mariners are 10th in runs scored with 242, six more runs than Los Angeles has produced this season. However, the biggest difference between the two teams is the pitching, with the Dodgers’ staff ranked fifth in quality starts and fourth in combined ERA, while Seattle ranks in the bottom-half of the majors in both categories. That disparity could prove crucial in game one of this series even though Los Angeles starter Nate Eovaldi is going for his first win. The 22-year old Eovaldi hasn’t allowed more than three runs in consecutive losses, while veteran Kevin Millwood is coming off a tough defeat in which he gave up four runs in just four innings of work, his shortest start of the season.

Unfortunately for Mariners’ fans that pitching contrast won’t become any less noticeable in game two of the series, with reigning NL Cy Young award winner Clayton Kershaw getting the start opposite Jason Vargas. While Vargas has pitched well for Seattle this season, including wins in four of his last six starts, he allowed at least three earned runs in each of those games, while Kershaw has held opponents under that mark in eight of his 11 appearances this online sports betting season.

Any chance that the Mariners have of avoiding a sweep would likely have to be in the finale against Chad Billingsley, who has just one win since April 11. Unfortunately for Seattle, 23-year old Blake Beavan gets the call opposite Billingsley for Sunday’s game, and he has given up 11 earned runs in his last 11 innings of work. Amazingly enough, one of those games was a 21-8 win over the division-leading Texas Rangers, but that isn’t likely to happen again in this game, especially with the Dodgers riding the momentum of a city that seems to have turned the corner in more than one sports bet forum this season.
