The Rockies are 6-1 in their last seven in game three of a series and 17-42 in their last 59 with a total of 7.0-8.5. Colorado is 16-48 in their last 64 road games and the under is 10-4 in their last 14 Sunday games.
Meanwhile, the Dodgers are 45-16 in their last 61 Sunday games and 126-54 in their last 180 home games. LA is 101-42 in their last 143 versus a team with a losing record and the over is 4-0 in their last four Sunday games.
PICK: I’m going to take a stab on the Rockies. Senzatela has been doing pretty well lately, posting three or fewer earned runs in seven of his last eight outings. In his last trio, Senzatela has six earned runs on 20 hits and four walks in 19.0 innings of work. If Senzatela can muster a quality outing in this one (and Colorado can get the bats moving), I think the Rockies have a good shot at a W in this finale.
