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

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning nine of their last 12 games. The Dodgers have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won seven of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 100 hits and 64 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 155 hits and 84 RBI. Hyun-Jin Ryu gets the ball, and he is 9-1 with a 1.27 ERA and 90 strikeouts this season. Ryu is 4-6 with a 4.61 ERA and 54 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.

The Colorado Rockies could use a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Rockies have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 14 games. The Colorado Rockies have won six of their last 10 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 181 hits and 99 RBI. Antonio Senzatela gets the ball, and he is 6-5 with a 4.91 ERA and 45 strikeouts this season. Senzatela is 1-0 with a 4.73 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

The Dodgers are 16-5 in their last 21 during game 2 of a series, 47-20 in their last 67 Friday games and 8-1 in Ryu's last 9 starts. The Rockies are 16-5 in their last 21 home games, 2-5 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series and 6-2 in Senzatela's last 8 starts vs. National League West. The Dodgers are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Colorado and 21-7 in the last 28 meetings. The under is 18-7-1 in Senzatela's last 26 starts overall. The under is 4-1 in Ryu's last 5 starts overall.

Ryu has allowed five earned runs in his last 71.2 innings, and he has a 1.74 ERA in 41.1 innings on the road. Senzatela has allowed two or less earned runs in six of his last eight starts, but he has a 6.21 ERA with an allowed batting average of .299 at home. You can make a case for the Rockies and the big plus money based on Senzatela improving over his last few starts, but the Dodgers continue to rake offensively and have a pitcher who has been lights out these last two months. I have to stay on the Dodgers bandwagon, and I'll do so here while laying the RL to add value to the wager.

Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5
