MLB | Free Pick Wednesday
There isn’t a team in baseball that needs a win any worse than the Los Angeles Dodgers. They come into tonight’s contest clinging to a 1.5 game lead over the Colorado Rockies. Look baseball fans, we’re running out of real estate in this season. We are not coming down to the wire, this is the wire! Teams are right in the thick of this thing and every sing pitch and every single at bat matters. For the players, their baseball lives depend on what they do from here on out. There is still time to get a great baseball bonus for the playoffs so be sure and ask for one from your friendly, online sportsbook.
There are 11 games left on most schedules, what happens tonight and every night from here on out is obviously important and it just as important to the Dodgers as any team in baseball. The Dodgers need this win tonight, they must have every win from here on out and here is the problem; the Rockies need the win just as bad! The Rockies have had an amazing 2nd half and here is the remarkable thing, their road record is nose to nose with their home record. This team is resilient, their tough and they are fighters. They don’t lose many games on the road.
Who’s Going Tonight?
The Rockies send Tyler Anderson (6-9 4.82 ERA) to the hill against Walker Buehler (7-5 2.88 ERA) for the Dodgers. When looking at the numbers, they look fairly similar with an obvious 2 run difference in ERA’s. However, these numbers quite possibly do not reflect the bigger picture between the two. Anderson leads the way in strikeouts with 155 over 162.1 innings pitched against 131 strikeouts for Buehler and 118.2 innings pitched. This is where things between the two get interesting. Anderson has given up 158 hits, 54 walks and 29 home runs while Buehler has given up just 87 hits, 31 walks and 12 home runs.
Maybe the last outing wraps up the story between these two; what have they done? Anderson has pitched six innings while giving up seven hits, 2 earned runs, no walks and six strikeouts. So, he gave up just over one hit per inning but had one strikeout per inning, with a WHIP of 1.17 and an overall ERA for the one game, of 3.00. Buehler pitched 8 complete while giving up 2 hits, o runs, 2walks and 9 strikeouts, with a WHIP of .50 and an ERA of 0.00.
Tonight, we are picking on momentum and pure pitching numbers. This is a game that looks to favor the Dodger. Not only do they have the pitching, they have the hitting.
Prediction: Dodgers 6-2
Tonight’s game is the perfect scenario for the “Run Line. And the reason we like it; the -205 is a big number to lay. The Run Line for the Dodgers is paying “even money’, at -1.5, this number is a great buy tonight. Jump on it and have fun.
