Baseball Betting – Greinke Tries to Continue Hot Pitching for Dodgers – Written By Charles Jay

Okay, so here is the question customers at Get That Bet have to contemplate on Tuesday night: can Zack Greinke complete get another start were he allows two earned runs or less? This guy has been unbelievable, as he has gone 22 consecutive starts where the opposition has not scored more than two earned runs against him. Can the Cincinnati Reds get any luckier? Well, not if Greinke turns it up a notch like his fellow hurlers did in the two previous games.

All baseball bettors know by now that the Los Angeles Dodgers almost made major-league history and the last couple of days, as first Josh Beckett pitched a no hitter against the Phillies, and then Hyun-Jin Ryu went seven perfect innings in front of a frenzied Dodger Stadium crowd, before the Reds finally reached him. There was actually some high anxiety on the Dodger side, as Los Angeles held on to win 4-3 to open up this three-game series.

What makes this game so interesting is that no one should conclude that it is going to be a cakewalk for the Dodgers, as Alfredo Simon is taking the mound for Cincinnati. Simon has been absolutely sizzling on the road, going 5-0 with a 1.05 ERA, and when a pitcher has numbers like that, you absolutely have to respect him.

So the numbers that have been posted in the baseball betting odds at Get That Bet on this game are indeed interesting, as the Dodgers and Greinke are favored by a wide margin:

Los Angeles Dodgers (Greinke – R) -200

Cincinnati Reds (Simon – R) +170

Over 6.5 Runs -110


Under 6.5 Runs -110

Greinke did allow three runs in his last start on Thursday against the New York Mets, but only one of those runs was earned. His guys in the field led him down, including Matt Kemp, who is switching over to left field because center may be too much of a strain on him, with his recovery from ankle surgery. Of course, no one can deny that the Dodgers are coming on strong, with a 2.21 ERA over their last seven games. They still trail San Francisco by 4.5 games in the National League West race, but at 28-24, they at least are not digging themselves a hole where they have to come on like gangbusters in order to contend for the division title.

Cincinnati is 22-27 on the season, and that is a huge disappointment, to say the least. This has been a rough rookie season for manager Bryan Price, but at least it appears he is found a bright spot in Simon, a 33-year-old who was only in the rotation because Mat Latos is injured. Judging from his performance (Simon on an overall basis is 6-2 with a 2.31 ERA), he may find himself with a starting spot on a permanent basis.
