Baseball Betting at Get That Bet – Pirates Now Look For Second Straight Win at Dodger Stadium

Well, now the Pittsburgh Pirates can get a winning streak going at Chavez Ravine. As they came into this series with the Los Angeles Dodgers, they had dropped nine straight in L.A., with a total of ten runs scored. That was pathetic. But they got some offense on Thursday night and were able to make a dent in the Dodger pitching staff in a 6-3 win that got them off to a very good start on this excursion out west.

There was some “home cooking” at work, but it was for the Pirates. Gerrit Cole, a native of southern California who pitched at UCLA, made his Dodger Stadium debut a successful one, and he got help from Russell Martin, who has experienced his best major league moments in a Dodger uniform (including dating Alyssa Milano, we’re told) and launched a homer for the Pirates.

In this Friday game, Josh Beckett, fresh off his no-hitter against Philadelphia, gets the start for the Dodgers, while Francisco Liriano (0-5) looks for his first victory of the season for Pittsburgh.

In the baseball betting odds that have been posted on this game by the people at Get That Bet USA Online Sportsbook, the Dodgers are the favorites, but not by a big number:

Under 7 Runs -105

Beckett has been a great comeback story, because he missed most of last season with various problems that finally culminated in surgery to address thoracic outlet syndrome. He came to spring training with the Dodgers wishing and hoping that he could become one of the five starters. As it turns out, he is one of the cornerstones of one of the best rotations in baseball.

So far he has a 1.02 WHIP ratio, which is blistering, and opponents have batted just .189 against him. Here is the problem Get That Bet customers need to be mindful of, however: he threw 128 pitches on Saturday in that no-hitter, and it would be hard to imagine him approaching that figure again. So it will be in the hands of the bullpen to a greater extent. Not that they aren’t capable, but baseball bettors know that they have hardly been impenetrable. Yesterday, Dan Haren put in a very credible performance for the Dodgers, but Brandon league then imploded, allowing three runs in two-thirds of an inning, as the Pirates salted things away.

Baseball bettors will certainly want to keep an eye on two Los Angeles position players – Yasiel Puig, who is now batting .348, and after two doubles yesterday, has now reached base safely (hit or walk) in 30 straight games; and matt Kemp, who recently sat out five games as the team was reportedly teaching him how to play left field, because he was determined, because of recovery from last year’s injuries perhaps, to be incapable of playing center field. He has been a little miffed about it. By the way, in left field he takes the place of Carl Crawford, who is out with a sprained ankle.
