He has a 24-9 record with an ERA of 3.32 and 290 strikeouts in 44 appearances versus the Rockies in his career.

Colorado Rockies

The Rockies get here with a 32-42 record and have lost 5 of their last 7 games. The team is averaging 4.4 runs while allowing 5.4 runs per game.  and they're batting for .260 AVG, have 329 runs scored in 663 hits and 66 home runs, ranking #13 in offense in the league behind the Cleveland Guardians.

Kyle Freeland (3-5, 4.29 ERA) will be on the mound for the Rockies in the 2nd game of the series. On Thursday against the Marlins, Freeland pitched seven innings and surrendered two earned runs on seven hits and no walks while fanning five. He did not factor in the decision. He has a 3-8 record with an ERA of 4.42 and 77 strikeouts in 17 appearances against the Dodgers in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Los Angeles Dodgers' last 12 games when playing on the road against Colorado.

Los Angeles Dodgers are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the National League West Division division.

The total has gone UNDER in 9 of Colorado Rockies last 12 games against Los Angeles Dodgers.

Colorado Rockies are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games at home.

Prediction

The Dodgers offense was shut down by Chad Khul who held them to zero runs and pitched his first complete game of his career but don't expect that to happen again as the Rockies will send Kyle Freeland who was pounded with 5 runs in 3.2 innings by the Dodgers earlier this season. Los Angeles will send Clayton Kershaw for this game who has allowed only 2 runs in his last 11 innings pitched and is 24-9 against the Rockies in his career. Expect the Dodgers to bounce back for this game as they should get Freeland early in the game. Take Los Angeles to win and cover the run line.

PICK: Dodgers -1.5 (-140)
