Two teams right in the thick of the playoff races in the National League will hit the field in Pittsburgh on Monday night as the Pirates begin a four-game series at home against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers is a -125 series favorite at Bovada Sportsbook.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are starting to fade in the NL Central race as the Cincinnati Reds pull away, but they're still in the hunt for one of the Senior Circuit's two Wild Cards berths. That has them at 9/1 on the Bovada Sportsbook odds to win the NL Pennant, and at 28/1 to win the 2012 World Series.
The Dodgers are battling the San Francisco Giants for top spot in the NL West division standings, and they're a contender for a National League Wild Card berth as well. Los Angeles is at 5/1 on the NL Pennant odds and at 14/1 on Bovada Sportsbook's 2012 World Series Odds.
Harang is 7-7 on the season with a 3.80 ERA, but MLB bettors have watched the Dodgers go just 3-7 over his last 10 trips to the mound. Harang, however, has allowed three or fewer earned runs in eight of his last 10 starts.
The Pirates counter with Karstens on Monday, and he's coming off a no-decision against the Diamondbacks in which he gave up three runs on eight hits in six innings of work. Karstens has pitched the Pirates to victories in six of his last 10 trips to the mound.
Los Angeles is expected to send Chad Billingsley (8-9, 3.94 ERA) to the hill for Tuesday's game against Pittsburgh's Kevin Correia (9-6, 4.49 ERA), with the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw (10-6, 2.88 ERA) and the Pirates' Wandy Rodriguez (7-11, 3.91 ERA) in line to start on Wednesday, and Thursday's starters still to be announced.
