*4 Star MLB Top Total of the Week* The Colorado Rockies start German Marquez here. Marquez has allowed a .343 weighted on base average to the Los Angeles Dodgers lineup. Marquez has a 10.13 ERA and a 5.57 FIP in his last three starts, so he enters this game in bad form as well.
The Dodgers lineup is a great one. They have been particularly good at home offensively. The depth of this lineup is tough for many pitchers to handle.
Colorado's bullpen is a bottom ten bullpen in baseball, and the Dodgers could easily add on against this Rockies bullpen.
Tony Gonsolin is due for some regression. He has a 0.51 ERA this year, but his xFIP is 4.11 and his SIERA is 4.08. Gonsolin is a good pitcher, but he isn't this good.
The weather is a big factor here too. The game time temperature is expected to be 105 degrees. That's one of the hottest temperatures you will ever see in Los Angeles. The ball was carrying very well on Friday night at Dodger Stadium, and it will be even hotter for this one.
Finally, Alfonso Marquez is the home plate umpire for this game. Marquez is a great over umpire. He has called the fewest strikes of any umpire in the majors in the last three years. The over is a whopping 33-10 in his last 43 games behind home plate.
Take the over.
