Baseball Betting at Get That Bet — Nats Send Workhorse Gonzalez to Mound vs. Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers have the highest payroll in all of baseball, and thus more pressure to win and win big than most teams do. On Monday night they will play host to the Washington Nationals in baseball betting action that is slated to get underway at 8:10 PM ET at Dodger Stadium in Chavez Ravine.

The Dodgers find themselves in a dogfight in the National League West, as they hold a lead of just 2.5 games over the San Francisco Giants with their 77-60 record. The Nationals have more breathing room, as they have a 77-58 mark and lead the Atlanta Braves by six games in the NL East.

The teams send out pitchers with similar numbers for the Monday night matchup. The Nationals give the ball to southpaw Gio Gonzalez (6-9, 3.86 REA), while right-hander Roberto Hernandez, who has been very valuable for the Dodgers takes his 8-9 mark and 3.87 ERA into this game.

In the baseball betting odds that have been posted on this game by the folks at Get That Bet, the Nationals are the road favorites:

Washington Nationals (Gonzalez – L) -120
Los Angeles Dodgers (Hernandez – R) +100

Under 7.5 Runs -115
Over 7.5 Runs -105

Gonzalez had some shoulder inflammation problems this season, but there is no question about the fact that the Nats are going to get a full effort out of him; in fact, he has gone seven innings or more in eighteen consecutive starts (thirteen in a row since he came off the disabled list). He was on a hot streak in late June-early July, going 21 straight innings without allowing an earned run. He’s cooled off since, and Washington has lost five of the last seven starts he’s made.

Hernandez has done a pretty good job filling a slot in the starting rotation that was left by Josh Beckett’s injury, and he was doing pretty well even before he came over from the Philadelphia Phillies. Get That Bet customers know that he doesn’t go as many innings as Gonzalez, but he has managed a 2.60 ERA over his last six outings.

Washington has lost four of its six games on this current road trip, including a three-game sweep at the hands of the Phillies. They have played six of their last nine games over the total that has been posted in the baseball betting odds. The Dodgers, who are a stunning 43-28 on the road, have only managed a 34-32 mark in their own park, and that has been rather perplexing for many Get That Bet patrons. .

One of the added attractions surrounding this game is the ceremonial first pitch, which will be thrown out by Manny Pacquiao, who is currently on a press tour to promote his November 22 fight against Chris Aligieri, which takes place in Macau. Pacquiao also threw out the first pitch at AT&T Park in San Francisco on Friday night, but says he’s got enough rest. Oddsmaker Charles Jay makes Pacquiao a +130 underdog to throw a strike on that pitch.
