They're favoured because the Rockies are garbage. I mean look at their record; at home, 25-40 on the road 25-40. They don't win no matter what the situation is. Oddsmakers just want even money. If the Dodgers were the dog EVERYONE would be on them, likely even myself. The Rockies should never ever be favoured over anybody. They're terrible. But I like them in this spot because Blanton is a turd wagon throwing turds at the Rockies lineup and dolla bills in my pocket. I appreciate that man greatly.
