I’m siding with the Colorado Rockies Sunday as a small home favorite over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Kevin Millwood has pitched well in his two starts since getting called up, allowing just 15 base runners in 13 innings for a 1.154 WHIP. I like his chances to shut down this weak Dodgers’ line-up today. Millwood is 5-3 with a 2.67 ERA and 1.151 WHIP in nine career starts against the Dodgers.
I’ll gladly fade Chad Billingsley in this spot. Billingsley is 5-5 with a 5.14 ERA and 1.513 WHIP in 13 road starts in 2011. He has struggled in 12 career starts against the Rockies, going 3-6 with a 4.77 ERA and 1.697 WHIP. He has faced the Dodgers three times this year, going 1-2 with a 7.36 ERA while allowing 12 earned runs in 14 2/3 innings.
Millwood is 27-7 against the money line vs. an NL team with an on base percentage .315 or worse since 1997. The Dodgers are 6-14 in Billingsley’s last 20 road starts. Los Angeles is 1-8 in their last 9 games as an underdog. The Dodgers are 1-5 in Billingsley’s last 6 road starts vs. Rockies. Take Colorado Sunday.
