Preview

The Colorado Rockies and the Los Angeles Dodgers will play the 4th game of the series at the Dodger Stadium on Sunday. The Rockies took the win 5-3 in the 3rd game of the series. Kyle Freeland outpitched Clayton Kershaw, and Brendan Rodgers had three hits as the Colorado Rockies snapped a six-game skid against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Colorado Rockies

The Rockies get here with a 46-56 record and have lost 7 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 4.54 runs per game and they're batting for .261 AVG, have 454 runs scored in 898 hits and 92 home runs, ranking #12 in offense in the league behind the Toronto Blue Jays. CJ Cron is leading the team with 22 home runs and 71 RBI and a batting average of .297.

Defensively they are allowing 5.34 runs per game and rank #28 in the league. German Marquez leads the pitching staff with a 5.47 ERA, 85 strikeouts and 6 wins recorded for the Rockies.

Probable Pitcher:

German Marquez (6-8, 5.25 ERA) will be on the mound for the Rockies in the 4th game of the series. Tuesday's game against the White Sox was a tough loss for Marquez (6-8), who gave up a run on seven hits, a walk, and six strikeouts in six innings. He has a record of 2-3 with an ERA of 3.56 and 78 strikeouts in 14 appearances versus the Dodgers in his career.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers get here with a 67-33 record and have won 7 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 5.14 runs per game and they're batting for .256 AVG, 488 runs scored in 824 hits and 124 home runs, ranking #2 in offense in the league behind the New York Yankees. Mookie Bets leads the team batting for .266 AVG. and 23 home runs. Trea Turner has 72 RBI. 

Defensively they are allowing 3.26 runs per game and rank #1 in the league. Tony Gonsolin leads the team with a 2.26 ERA, 90 strikeouts and 11 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:  Tony Gonsolin (11-1, 2.26 ERA)

Gonsolin will be on the mound in the 4th game of the series for the Dodgers. Gonsolin suffered a loss to the Nationals on Monday. He struck out four batters in six innings while allowing four runs on six hits and three walks. He is 1-1 with an ERA of 1.93, 31 strikeouts and 1 save in 5 appearances against the Rockies in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

LA Dodgers are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games against Colorado.

LA Dodgers are 16-4 SU in their last 20 games against an opponent in the National League.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Colorado's last 7 games at home.

Colorado Rockies are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games against an opponent in the National League.

Prediction

The Rockies bounced back and beat the Dodgers on Satruday's game and now they'll try to tie this series by sending German Marquez to the mound who has had 3 good outings allowing 2 or less runs in those starts but struggled vs Dodgers the last 2 times they met. Tony Gonsolin will start for the Dodgers who has struggled altely allowing 9 runs in the last 11 innings pitched but he has good numbers vs Rockies. It's hard to trust in Gonsolin right now while Marquez has been solid lately and the Rockies are playing good baseball at home and they are 33-23 ATS at home so I think Marquez will keep this game close enough for the Rockies to at least cover the spread or even win the game. Take the Rockies.

PICK: Rockies +1.5 (+105)
