The Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Wednesday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium. 

The Colorado Rockies could use a win after losing four of their last five games. The Rockies have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five straight games. The Colorado Rockies have lost six of their last eight games when scoring less than five runs. Charlie Blackmon leads the Rockies with 166 hits and 65 RBI while Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado have combined for 324 hits and 203 RBI. Tyler Anderson gets the ball, and he is 6-9 with a 4.82 ERA and 155 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 3-4 with a 4.10 ERA and 49 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning six of their last seven games. The Dodgers have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 12 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won 17 of their last 21 games when scoring more than one run. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 137 hits and 71 RBI while Chris Taylor and Matt Kemp have combined for 252 hits and 139 RBI. Walker Buehler gets the ball, and he is 7-5 with a 2.88 ERA and 131 strikeouts this season. Buehler is 0-1 with a 4.45 ERA and 27 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.

The Rockies are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series, 0-4 in Andersons last 4 road starts and 5-16 in Andersons last 21 starts. The Dodgers are 6-1 in their last 7 vs. National League West, 8-3 in their last 11 home games and 5-2 in Buehlers last 7 home starts. The Rockies are 13-29 in the last 42 meetings in Los Angeles, 1-8 in Andersons last 9 starts vs. Dodgers and the under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.

Anderson has allowed three or more runs in seven of his last nine starts and has an ERA of 5.18 on the road this season. Anderson is also allowing a .280 ERA with six homers in 157 career at bats against current Dodgers. Buehler has given up five runs in his last 20.1 innings and is allowing a .189 batting average at home this season. The Dodgers are also on fire right now and the Rockies can't seem to find any offense. Also, eight of the 12 wins the Dodgers have this season when Buehler has pitched, they've won by two or more runs. So, give me the Dodgers and the RL.

Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5
