The LA Dodgers look to avoid the sweep today in Colorado where they play the Rockies in the final game of their three game series. The Rockies crushed the Dodgers in the first couple games outscoring them 19-5.
Head to Head Trends
Dodgers are 2-7 in the last 9 meetings in Colorado.
Under is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.
Colorado Rockies (+120)
The Colorado Rockies are 3rd in the National League West 7 games back of the 1st place San Francisco Giants. After not doing much for most of the season the Rockies have been probably the hottest team in all of baseball over the past few weeks winning 11 of their last 13 games. The Rockies are know more as an offensive team but it’s been their pitching that’s been the main reason for their turn around allowing more then 3 runs in a game just twice over their last 13 games.
Starting for the Rockies today is Tyler Chatwood who is 10-6 with a 3.50 ERA on the season. Chatwood has been awesome on the road this season where he is 6-0 with a 1.30 ERA but at home he has had his struggles going just 4-6 with a 5.69 ERA.
Colorado Rockies Trends
Rockies are 11-2 in their last 13 overall.
Rockies are 4-0 in Chatwoods last 4 starts with 5 days of rest.
LA Dodgers (-130)
The LA Dodgers are 2nd in the National League West 2 games back of the Giants. The Dodgers have played some good and consistent ball this season. They hit the ball fairly well averaging 4.38 runs per game and they have a solid pitching staff allowing just 3.82 runs per game so they’re a very good well round team and that’s what wins game over the long run in baseball.
On the hill for the Dodgers in this one is Kenta Maeda who is 9-7 with a 3.22 ERA on the season. Maeda had a great start to the season allowing just 1 run over his first 4 starts but since then he’s been a little hit or miss. Over his last 17 starts Maeda has just 7 quality starts and 5 of those have been at home.
LA Dodgers Trends
Dodgers are 1-6 in Maedas last 7 starts following a Quality Start in his last appearance.
Dodgers are 2-5 in their last 7 vs. National League West.
Betting Pick Conclusion
I’m going with the Colorado Rockies over the Dodgers again today. I think the Dodgers are probably the better team overall but the Rockies are the hottest team in the league right now and we’re getting them as a nice +120 underdog at home.
