I get why the Dodgers would be favored here as they’re the Dodgers and they’ve been the better team in the first two games of the set. The issue is that I’m not sure what to make of David Price. On the other side, Jon Gray’s pitched well this season and the Rockies offense hasn’t been dominant behind him, so I’m going to side with the under as I’m not about to lay this many runs simply because the game is at Coors Field.
