3 units on Colorado +150 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The Dodgers are snakebit this season and continue to hover around the .500 mark, and their playoffs opportunity is basically behind them now. An exclamation point was added to the frustration last night when they seemingly had Atlanta dead and buried, but instead a 3-run ninth did them in once again. The Rockies are a tough team to figure out. They will go for a month looking invincible, then a few weeks of looking like they couldn't beat the Pirates. The Rockies were 10-2 then followed with a 2-10 run. They are back on a good run now at 10-6 and this is the time to play them. The Dodgers are just 1-6 behind Kershaw in his last seven starts vs. winning teams, and he has been a dreadful 2-12 to open a series in his last 14. I like Colorado here.
