Los Angeles Dodgers (Chris Capuano) +105
Is there any way that we can really bet against the Dodgers at this point? They are on the verge of losing a series, which isn’t all that unusual for the average team, but for the Dodgers? They haven’t lost a series in a month and a half. It’s really tough to go against a team at home that has won 44 of its last 55 games at this point. Granted, we have to realize that this matchup is a bad one for LA, as LHP Chris Capuano shouldn’t even be on the same field as RHP Jake Peavy. That being said though, Capuano has led his team to a 3-0 record in his last three starts in spite of the fact that his ERA in that stretch is 7.53. The team has averaged 6.0 runs per game in that stretch, and the bullpen really hasn’t given up anything in those games either. Getting help like that really helps avoid building up a nasty won/loss record. If Peavy had help like that, he would probably have 15 wins right now and would probably still be on the Chicago White Sox. It doesn’t add up right, but the Dodgers just don’t add up right at this moment either. They’re just playing out of their minds, and we have to think that they are going to find some way, in spite of Capuano, to win this game.
