The Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies meet Sunday in MLB action at Coors Field.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to complete the sweep while building on their 7-2 record. The Dodgers have scored 22 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their first nine games. The Los Angeles Dodgers are 7-1 this season when scoring more than two runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 17 hits and 17 RBI while A.J. Pollock and Justin Turner have combined for 22 hits and 15 RBI. Julio Urias gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and seven strikeouts this season. Urias is 0-1 with a 8.18 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.

The Colorado Rockies could use a win here after losing six of their last seven games. The Rockies have allowed 17 runs in this series and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Colorado Rockies have lost six straight games when allowing at least one run. Offensively, David Dahl leads the Rockies with 12 hits and six RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado have combined for 18 hits and seven RBI. Chad Bettis gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 9.53 ERA and five strikeouts this season. Bettis is 2-2 with a 4.85 ERA and 46 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

The Dodgers are 40-15 in their last 55 during game 3 of a series, 7-3 in their last 10 Sunday games and 1-4 in Urias' last 5 starts. The Rockies are 11-5 in their last 16 during game 3 of a series, 18-7 in Bettis' last 25 home starts and 1-4 in Bettis' last 5 starts vs. National League West. The Dodgers are 9-4 in the last 13 meetings in Colorado and 6-0 in the last 6 meetings. The over is 8-3-3 in Bettis' last 14 starts overall. The over is 7-3-1 in Dodgers last 11 road games.

Urias was solid in his season debut with seven strikeouts in five innings, and he's been rather impressive when he's actually on the mound. Bettis is usually batting practice for opposing pitchers, and it was much of that at home last season where he had an ERA of 7.08 and an allowed batting average of .311. Sure, pitchers are going to have rough numbers at times when pitching in Coors, but that is ridiculously terrible. The Los Angeles Dodgers are swinging a hot bat right now and should be foaming at the mouth with Bettis on the hill. 

Pick:
Los Angeles Dodgers -156
