The Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies face off on Thursday in a National League West showdown at Coors Field. These two squads have faced off six times so far this year and the Dodgers have won four of the games.
The Dodgers have found a whole lot of success this season and they are coming off a series against the Los Angeles Padres where they won two of the games. After the pitching let them down in the first game, the Dodgers got back to back good pitching performances and that led to some success. Mookie Betts has been the start for the Dodgers hitting 15 home runs and driving in 35 RBI’s. At Coors Field the Dodgers need to run up the score.
On the other side of this matchup is Rockies who play at Coors Field but their offense has been really struggling. Each of the last four games the Rockies have scored three runs or less and against a good offense like the Dodgers, they need to be better. The Rockies best player this season offense has been Charlie Blackmon who has hit six home runs and driven in 37 RBI’s.
The over is 5-2-1 in the Dodgers last eight games as a favorite. The Rockies are 5-11 in their last 16 home games. The Rockies are 11-1 in Freelands last 12 games played on Thursday. The under is 11-0 in Freelands last 11 starts against the Dodgers. The Dodgers are 8-3 in their last 11 meetings in Colorado.
Julio Urias will get the start for the Rockies and coming into this game he sits with a 3-0 record and an ERA of 3.53.
Kyle Freeland will get the start for the Rockies and coming into this game he sits with a 2-1 record and an ERA of 3.53.
When Freeland pitches against the Dodgers, the under is a strong play and that will continue in this game. Back the under to cash in this game. In terms of the side it's a lean to the Rockies but the better play is with the under to make you money.
