Baseball Betting at BetAnySports — Dodgers Look to End Skid with Correia on Mound

The Los Angeles Dodgers, even after a three-game losing streak, are controlling things in the National League West at the moment. And they are certainly looking forward to “warming up” again. On Tuesday night they will play host to the San Diego Padres in baseball betting action that is set to begin at 10:10 PM ET at Dodger Stadium in Chavez Ravine.

Currently the Dodgers, with a 70-56 record, are 3.5 games ahead of the San Francisco Giants. The Padres are further back – 10.5 games behind the Dodgers, although they still have some hope of a wild card bid, as they are seven games in back of the Giants, who hold that second position right now. However, the Padres have to be able sustain some more winning streaks like the one they recently had, and time is running out.

In a battle of right-handers, Ian Kennedy (9-10, 3.54 ERA) gets the start for the Padres, while Kevin Correia (6-13, 4.72 ERA), who may prove to be a nice find for Don Mattingly, takes the mound for the Dodgers.

In the baseball betting odds that have been posted on this game by the folks over at BetAnySports, the Dodgers are a small favorite:

Los Angeles Dodgers (Correia – R) -111
San Diego Padres (Kennedy – R) +101

Over 7 Runs -115
Under 7 Runs -105

With the injuries to Josh Beckett and Hyun-Jim Ryu, the Dodgers had to fill a hole in their rotation. So they reached out to the Minnesota Twins and acquired the veteran Correia, who was part of the National League All-Star team in 2011 with Pittsburgh but may have had his best season with the Padres in 2009. He’s made one start for the Dodgers, eight days ago against the Atlanta Braves, and allowed just one run on four hits over six innings. On August 6 he faced these Padres while in a Twins uniform, and left after giving up three runs in six frames. Essentially that is what Los Angeles is hoping to get from him – six innings or so and the ability to stay in games.

One thing some baseball bettors might find interesting is that even though they are a division leading team, the Dodgers are only so-so when playing at home. In fact, they are just 30-30 at Dodger Stadium. And they dropped all three to the Milwaukee Brewers at Chavez Ravine over the weekend, even though they had Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw on the mound for two of those contests. Still, the Dodgers are the +200 favorites to win the National League pennant as currently listed at BetAnySports.

The Padres have lost three of their last four games, after having won five straight. They have had a day off after a tough 7-6 loss at the hands of St. Louis on Sunday. And while Kennedy may not be showing the same kind of form he had when he went 21-4 for the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2011, he has been pretty solid of late, allowing three runs or less in seven of his last eight starts. On the road his ERA is 3.05, so baseball bettors should be well advised that this won’t be a walkover for the Dodgers by any stretch.

The last five games between these teams have been interesting. The Padres won a 6-3 decision on July 11, but the other four games during that period were all decided by a single run, and those four meetings totaled only eight runs.
