Preview

The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Colorado Rockies will play the 2nd game of the series at the Dodger Stadium on Tuesday night. The Dodgers took the win 5-3 to take the lead on the series. Thompson hit a go-ahead, three-run homer in the fifth inning and Julio Urías (7-6) won his fourth consecutive start, allowing one run and five hits in six innings.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers get here with a 50-29 record and have won 5 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 5 runs per game and they're batting for .252 AVG, 398 runs scored in 676 hits and 100 home runs, ranking #1 in offense in the league barely above the New York Yankees. Mookie Bets leads the team batting for .303 AVG. and 17 home runs. Trea Turner has 59 RBI. 

Defensively they are allowing 3.27 runs per game and rank #2 in the league. Tony Gonsolin leads the team with a 1.54 ERA, 77 strikeouts and 10 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:

Ryan Pepiot (0-0, 3.18 ERA) will be on the mound for the Dodgers in the 2nd game of the series. Mitch White was supposed to start, but Pepiot, who has a 3.18 ERA and 13:11 K:BB in three starts this season, will get the start.

Colorado Rockies

The Rockies get here with a 35-45 record and have lost 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.54 runs per game and they're batting for .261 AVG, have 363 runs scored in 718 hits and 76 home runs, ranking #11 in offense in the league behind the Milwaukee Brewers. CJ Cron is leading the team with 20 home runs and 65 RBI and a batting average of .297.

Defensively they are allowing 5.4 runs per game and rank #28 in the league. Chad Kuhl leads the pitching staff with a 3.83 ERA, 59 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded for the Rockies.

Probable Pitcher:

German Marquez (4-6, 5.89 ERA) will be on the mound for the Rockies in the 2nd game of the series. Marquez's inclusion on the Rockies' pitching schedule for the three-game series in Los Angeles suggests that he felt fine after his between-starts bullpen session on Sunday. The right-hander left his previous start against the Dodgers on June 29 due to a cut on the thumb of his throwing hand. He is 2-2 with an ERA of 3.36 and 71 strikeouts in 13 appearances versus the Dodgers in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

Colorado Rockies are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Colorado's last 6 games when playing on the road against LA Dodgers.

LA Dodgers are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the National League.

LA Dodgers are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games at home.

Prediction

The Doders are back on track as they have won 5 of their last 6 games and have averaged over 5 runs per game on those wins. They'll give the ball to the rookie Pepiot to try to give one more day of rest to the team top starters. Pepiot is holding a 1.94 ERA. The Rockies are 4-3 against the Dodgers this season but it will be tough to get a win in Los Ageles where the Dodgers are winning the 65% of the time. German Marquez will start for the Rockies and he got pounded by the Dodgers the last time allowing 5 runs. Look for the Dodgers offense to explode on this game and win in a high scoring game.

PICK: Parlay Dodgers -1.5 and Over 9 (+280)
