Colorado Rockies vs Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Odds

The total runs margin is set at 11.5 with both ways at -110.
The Los Angeles Dodgers started their road trip in great shape by sweeping out the Cincinnati Reds. The Dodgers are now travelling to Colorado for the final three games of their 9-game road trip. So far LA is 5-1 on this road trip losing only to the defending champions, the Atlanta Braves. Sunday’s game took some late heroics from the Dodgers to pull it off but they did just that, coming back from being down 2-0 in the top of the 9th to tie it and send the game to the extra inning.
From there they went on to win the game 5-3 and push their division lead out to 1.5 games. The Rockies are in last place in the division and will be happy to be back at Coors Field after losing 5 of 6 away from home. This isn’t a favorable matchup for them though, and going against Tyler Anderson, who is 8-0 on the year with a 3.00 ERA, doesn’t provide any confidence in backing the underdogs in this one. The Dodgers will have no issues continuing their hot streak on the road in this one.
