MLB Betting: Dodgers vs Padres & Rockies vs Diamondbacks – 07/02/22

In today’s MLB betting guide, the San Diego Padres look to bounce back against the Los Angeles Dodgers, while the Colorado Rockies try to take advantage of the Arizona Diamondbacks and a struggling pitcher.

Los Angeles Dodgers (-150) vs San Diego Padres (+125)

Dodgers’ starter Tyler Anderson lost his first game of the season in his last start as he is now 8-1. He’s looked shaky as of late and hasn’t looked like the very strong pitcher he’s shown everything to start the season. Yu Darvish who’s on the mound for the Padres has looked very strong and gives the team a good chance to upset. He’s had four great starts in a row and given up just five runs in the past 28 innings while striking out a ton of batters as he always does.

Some signs point to the Dodgers continuing to win as they’ve done so three times in a row, but the Padres are due for one and they are actually very good on the road (25-17). The Padres are very close behind the Dodgers in the standings even though they’ve lost both of the opening two games to the Dodgers. They were held to two runs, so a cold pitcher for the Dodgers could change the fortunes of the Padres batters. Take the Padres as a nice underdog and the under (U8, -115).

Colorado Rockies (-145) vs Arizona Diamondbacks (+120)

This matchup between the Rockies and the Diamondbacks is not set to be a pitching display, especially with the game being played in Colorado. After the Diamondbacks took game one of the series, Dallas Keuchel will start his second game for them after being picked up. He has had a horrible season and didn’t have a good start in his first game for Arizona allowing six hits, three walks, and four earned runs in 4.1 innings. The team is also 4-6 in their past 10 games and 16-20 on the road.

As for the Rockies, their batting continues to inspire them as they lead the MLB in hits per game (nine) and are 11th in runs per game. The Diamondbacks are nowhere near that mark and are actually 29th in hits per game, giving starter Austin Gomber a little piece of mind heading in. He was switched over to long relief after a rough stretch, but now that he’s back starting, he will be working to right the ship. He’s had some solid games this season which is more than I can say for Keuchel. The Rockies should be able to hammer in a ton of runs this game, so take them and over (O12, -115) even though the over is set fairly high.
