The Los Angeles Dodgers were a major disappointment last year as they fell below .500 with a baseball wagering record of 80-82 as Joe Torre retired as manager after the season. Another former Yankee, Don Mattingly, is now in charge of the Dodgers.
Los Angeles has long been known for their excellent pitching but that is what failed them last year as they fell to 12th overall in the major leagues for staff earned run average. Matt Guerrier, a right hander, was signed away from the Minnesota Twins to bolster the pitching staff. He is one of the most durable and premier middle relief pitchers in all of baseball.
The Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti kept busy during the off season as he signed a total of 10 free agents despite the continuous saga of the McCourt divorce and bitter ownership fight that has the franchise in limbo.
One constant, announcer Vin Scully, returns to remind everyone of the Dodgers once dignified, classy, and glorious past. Mattingly enters the 2011 season facing plenty of skepticism and doubts about his ability to be an effective manager.
The Angels are also coming off a disappointing season last year as they had a betting baseball record of 80-82 and failed to make the playoffs for a fourth consecutive season. The loss of first baseman Kendry Morales last year to injury proved to be a killer but with Morales back and health the Angels are again expected to contend for the American League West Division title.
The Angels were a +2500 choice to win the 2011 World Series while the Dodgers were also a +2500 online baseball betting selection to win the Fall Classic.
