Los Angeles Dodgers Recap

The Los Angeles Dodgers will be looking to keep the ball rolling after rallying for an 11-9 win in Tuesday’s matchup between these two. The Dodgers at the very worst will get a split from this four-game series, building on their series win over the Royals from this past weekend.

Dodgers Rolling At The Dish

Entering Tuesday’s matchup, Shohei Ohtani has 89 hits including a team-high 19 home runs, 20 doubles and 47 RBIs with a .314 batting average while Mookie Betts has 86 hits with 16 doubles, 3 triples, 10 homers and 40 RBIs of his own, but will miss the next few weeks because of an injury. Teoscar Hernandez also has 17 home runs with 51 RBIs and a team-high 90 strikeouts. Betts also has 9 stolen bases while Ohtani has a team-high 16 stolen bases. Freddie Freeman also has 43 RBIs with 20 doubles and Will Smith has added 16 doubles, 10 home runs and 44 RBIs.

Why the Los Angeles Dodgers will win

  • The Rockies have lost seven of their last eight games at Coors Field.
  • The Dodgers have won each of their last four games against NL West opponents that held a losing record.
  • The Rockies have failed to cover the run line in seven of their last eight games as underdogs against NL West opponents.
  • The favorites have covered the run line in seven of the Rockies’ last eight games at Coors Field.
  • The Rockies have trailed after 5 innings in each of their last six Wednesday night games against National League opponents that held a winning record.

Colorado Rockies Recap

The Colorado Rockies will try to regroup and bounce back after a disappointing finish to Tuesday’s matchup with a collapse in the 9th inning for another loss, putting them behind the 8-ball after series losses to the Pirates and Twins over the last week.

Rockies Struggling To Find Their Footing

Going into Tuesday’s action, Ezequiel Tovar leads the Rockies with 85 hits including a team-high 22 doubles with a team-high 86 strikeouts as well this season while Ryan McMahon leads the Rockies with 12 home runs and 37 RBIs along with 15 doubles. Brenton Doyle’s added 11 doubles and a team-high 18 stolen bases as well and Elias Diaz has a team-best .303 batting average this season.

Why the Colorado Rockies will win

  • The Dodgers have lost six of their last nine games as road favorites against the Rockies following a road win.
  • The Dodgers have failed to cover the run line in nine of their last 11 games at Coors Field following a road win.

Colorado Rockies vs LA Dodgers Prediction

I’m on the over here. I lean towards the Dodgers here, as Los Angeles is the better team and they keep finding ways to deliver. However, Bobby Miller isn’t in a great environment for his first start in two months and I think this could be a tough spot for him. On the other side, Feltner has been brutal, with an ERA just under seven this season at home, and the Rockies’ bullpen has been hideous as well. I think this one is going to be high-scoring like the first two games of this series have been. Give me the over.
