Roberto Hernandez Baseball Betting at BetAnySports - Hot Pitchers Get Together as Dodgers Host Padres

The Los Angeles Dodgers continue to hold the lead in their division, but now they are dealing with a couple of injuries to their starting rotation. One of the pictures they have inserted will take the mound and try to continue his recent solid efforts as the Dodgers play host to the San Diego Padres in baseball betting action that is scheduled to begin at 10:10 PM ET at dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers come into this game with a record of 71-56, and they lead the National League West by 4.5 games over the San Francisco Giants. However, a look at the record indicates that it is Los Angeles’ prowess on the road that has propelled them into the top spot in the division; they are only 31-30 in their own ballpark. That might not be enough comfort for the Padres, who are 58-66, which includes a 24-39 road record, which is second-worst in the league.

Roberto Hernandez (7-8, 3.78 ERA), who put forth a nice performance in his Dodger debut, will take the mound on Wednesday night. The right-hander is opposed by San Diego southpaw Erik Stults, whose 5-13 record and 4.64 ERA does not reflect how well he has been pitching lately.

In the baseball betting odds that have been posted on this game at BetAnySports, the Dodgers are favored:

Los Angeles Dodgers (Hernandez – R) -146
San Diego Padres (Stults – L) +136

Over 7.5 Runs -110
Under 7.5 Runs -110

It wasn’t that long ago that San Diego had put together a five-game winning streak, but reality seems to have set in, as this team has lost four of its last five – all on the road. And this comes while the team has scored more runs than usual; in the last three contests, for example, the Padres have tallied 21 runs. Of course, that has had its effect for baseball bettors who like to play totals, as they have gone over in three straight. Still, on an overall basis, they have played 74 “unders” and 45 “overs” on the season (five were pushes).

Stults has been very strong in his last three starts, combining for 1.37 ERA and 0.92 WHIP ratio during that time. He has allowed only 13 hits in his last 19 innings of work. And he wasn’t too bad against the Dodgers on June 22, allowing just two runs in seven innings, although his teammates didn’t give him any support at all, losing a 2-1 decision.

The Dodgers were unsuccessful in making deals to land either David Price or Jon Lester, and all BetAnySports customers are well aware they had the money to make that kind of thing happen. So they had to go another route, picking up Fernandez, who, as baseball bettors remember, was formerly known as Fausto Carmona, and who was pitching very well right before the trade with the Philadelphia Phillies in which Los Angeles sent two minor leaguers in return.

Hernandez pitched six nights ago against the Atlanta Braves, allowing just three hits and one earned run in six innings. Over his last three starts his numbers haven’t been even better than Stults’, with a 1.35 ERA and 0.80 WHIP. Hernandez is on board primarily to fill the spot in the rotation that was left by the injury to Josh Beckett, who may or may not be able to come back this season.
