The Line: Los Angeles Dodgers -130 / Colorado Rockies +120 --- Over/Under: 7.5 See the Latest Odds
The Colorado Rockies look to keep the bats moving as they continue their California road against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday.
The Rockies laid a beating on the San Diego Padres last night and will look to carry that momentum over to Monday night’s show down with the Dodgers as they will send Tyler Chatwood to the bump to face off against Mike Bolsinger. The Rockies head into LA struggling a bit as they are just 3-7 in their last 10 contests and still sit seven games under the .500 mark but with the power they possess at the plate they are never out of a game and could very well use this road trip as a stepping stone to getting on the right track and perhaps make a push at a potential playoff spot. Chatwood is 6-4 with s 2.99 ERA so far this season while Bolsinger is 1-2 with a 4.20 mark and will be out to bring that down at home.

The Dodgers meanwhile are coming off a 12-6 thrashing of the Atlanta Braves but that isn’t anything to put on your resume this season as the Braves are downright awful but a win is a win and the Dodgers need as many as they can right now. The Dodgers are 31-27 this season and are right in the mix with the San Francisco Giants in the NL West and if they can grab a few wins here against another division rival it could give them a cushion heading into the middle of June.
The Rockies are 6-0 in Chatwood’s last six road starts, 1-4 in their last five overall, and 1-4 in their last five series openers while the Dodgers are 6-0 in their lasy six home games, 9-4 in their last 13 overall, and 1-5 in Bolsinger’s last six. This should actually be a very exciting series and with Chatwood going for the Rockies I think it is their best chance to get a win and I will take a swing with the heavy hitter of Colorado.
