Los Angeles Dodgers (63-52 SU, 51-64 RL, 3-7-0 O/U) vs Colorado Rockies

(60-54 SU, 58-56 RL, 6-4-0 O/U)

MLB: Friday, August 10, Coors Field, Denver, Colorado, 8:40 PM ET.

The Colorado Rockies will be trying to bounce back from their series loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates and close the gap between themselves and the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NL West when they take on the Los Angeles Dodgers in the second game of their four-game weekend series on Friday night.

Kenta Maeda, who is 7-7 with a 3.73 ERA, will get the start for the Dodgers. The Rockies will counter with Jon Gray, who is 9-7 with a 4.73 ERA.

Dodgers Trying To Reclaim Division Lead

The Dodgers are currently in second place in the NL West, half a game behind the division-leading Arizona Diamondbacks. They will be trying to reclaim the division lead by defeating the Rockies over the weekend. They will also be going for their second consecutive win over the Rockies on Friday.

Offensively, the Dodgers have been playing well after a slow start to the season. The team has a .242 batting average, which is 21st in the league. Their .324 on base percentage is 10th, while their .426 slugging percentage is eighth in the league. The Dodgers have scored 543 runs this season, which is seventh in the league.

Los Angeles’ pitching has been much better than their offense. Opponents have a .233 batting average against the Dodgers, which is seventh in the league. Their 3.51 ERA is third, while their 1.18 WHIP is second in the league.

In his last start, Maeda gave up six hits and five earned runs in 5.1 innings, leading to a 14-0 loss to the Houston Astros. The team will need a much better effort from him to get the win on Friday.

Rockies Trying To Snap Losing Streak

The Rockies have struggled over the past two weeks and now find themselves in third place in the NL West, three games behind the Diamondbacks. Like the Dodgers, they will be trying to gain some ground in the division, but they will have to play better than they have lately.

Colorado has lost three consecutive series and will try to snap the streak when they face the Dodgers.

Offensively, the Rockies have been very good this season. The team has a .254 batting average, which is ninth in the league. Their .320 on base percentage is 16th, while their .429 slugging percentage is fifth in the league. The Rockies have scored 534 runs this season, which is ninth in the league.

Colorado’s pitching hasn’t been as good as the team’s offense this season, and will need to be at their best to defeat the Dodgers. Opponents have a .253 batting average against the Rockies, which is 17th in the league. Their 4.60 ERA is 23rd, while their 1.35 WHIP is 20th.

In his last start, Gray gave up four hits and one earned run in eight innings, helping the Rockies get a 5-4 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. They will need another solid start from him to get the win on Friday.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Rockies have struggled in their last eight games, especially when facing right-handed pitchers. The Dodgers have done well against division rivals in their last five games and have been great on the road against teams with winning records.

Prediction: Los Angeles Dodgers -110

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The Dodgers average 4.72 runs per game, while the Rockies average 4.68 runs per game. Smart money on the under.

Prediction: Under 10.5

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

Los Angeles is one of the best offensive teams in the league, but they are averaging 4.75 runs per game this season. They have scored an average of 4.67 runs per game in their last three games, and the Rockies have a 3.33 ERA in their last three games so they likely won’t go over five runs.

Prediction: Dodgers Total Runs Under 5

First Five Innings Side Pick
Rating:

The Rockies average 3.13 runs in the first five innings, but have averaged 1.33 runs in the first five innings of their last three games. The Dodgers average 2.63 runs in the first five innings and 2.33 runs in the first five innings of their last three games.

Prediction: Los Angeles Dodgers -110

First Five Innings Total Bet
Rating:

Both teams combine for 5.73 runs in the first five innings this season, and 3.66 runs in their last three games.

Prediction: Under 6

First Five Innings Prop Prediction
Rating:

The Dodgers average 0.56 runs in the first inning this season, but they have scored an average of 0.33 runs in the first inning of their last three games. The Rockies average 0.71 runs in the first inning but haven’t scored a run in the first inning of their last three games.

Prediction: Will there be a score in the 1st Inning? No +110
