The Line: Los Angeles Dodgers -182 / Colorado Rockies +160 -- Over/Under: 11
The Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies meet Thursday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after winning 10 of their last 14 games. The Dodgers have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 13 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won six of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 98 hits and 63 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 151 hits and 80 RBI. Walker Buehler gets the ball, and he is 8-1 with a 2.96 ERA and 100 strikeouts this season. Buehler is 3-1 with a 2.84 ERA and 62 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies could use a win after losing four of their last six games. The Rockies have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 15 games. The Colorado Rockies have won six of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 97 hits and 62 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story have combined for 178 hits and 97 RBI. Peter Lambert gets the ball, and he is 2-0 with a 5.85 ERA and 16 strikeouts this season. This will be Lambert’s second career game against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 5-1 in their last 6 Thursday games, 44-21 in their last 65 during game 1 of a series and 5-1 in Buehlers last 6 starts. The Rockies are 4-0 in their last 4 Thursday games, 5-1 in their last 6 during game 1 of a series and 1-4 in their last 5 vs. National League West. The Dodgers are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Colorado, 21-7 in the last 28 meetings and 4-0 in Buehlers last 4 starts vs. Rockies. The under is 3-1-1 in Rockies last 5 overall. The under is 4-0 in Buehlers last 4 starts overall.
Buehler has allowed 13 hits and three runs in his last 31 innings while striking out 42 and walking just one. On the road this season through 47 innings, Buehler has a .287 ERA and a .214 allowed batting average. Lambert has given up 16 hits and 11 runs in his last eight innings, and he has to face a dangerous Dodgers lineup for the second time in the last week. The Los Angeles Dodgers have also owned the Rockies over the last two years, and they've lost back-to-back games just twice since April 25. I have to side with the Dodgers in this contest.
