Colorado Rockies vs LA Dodgers Prediction

Yoshinobu Yamamoto has been solid for the most part up to this point, even though he's been hit harder in recent starts. Cal Quantrill has been respectable this season, but he's had zero success against the Dodgers throughout his career. The Dodgers are obviously the more trustworthy side, and I don't have much use for the Rockies. The price is nuts, but it's Dodgers or pass for me. Of course, I lay the RL to shave down the juice.
