The Rockies have been absolutely snake-bit against the Dodgers and that’s not the half. This team was looking like they had a chance to put together something at least a little special and then the wheels fell off the bus. From a betting perspective, the Rockies have a better record in terms of (run line) than that of the Dodgers, with a 43-38 record, against the Dodgers 40-43. The Dodgers are not a good bet when it comes to covering the spread, but the good news for Dodger bettors; the money line.

Probable Pitchers: Dodgers LH Clayton Kershaw (7-1, 3.07 ERA) vs. Rockies RH Jon Gray (8-5, 3.92 ERA)
They come into this game with a 56-27 record, 29 games over .500. The Dodgers are in position to easily win 110 games! Count on the Dodgers to win at least 50 more games this season and count on the Rockies to win maybe another 40-45. The Rockies have some talent and they have potential, however, much like the AL East, and teams dealing with the Yankees, the Rockies are dealing with the Dodgers.
Normally, we would say that 12 is just not enough runs at the Coors launching pad, however, and with this however we include an *! We must, it’s simply “game on” in Denver and there is never a lack of scoring. It’s always a show at Coors Field. The asterisk must be placed in front of what’s bound to be a great pitching matchup between Clayton Kershaw (7-1, 3.07 ERA) and Jon Gray (8-5, 3.92 ERA).

Gray has pitched in just 11 innings less than Kershaw (85.0 – 96.1), he has given up 92 hits to Kershaw’s 76, but leads the way in strikeouts with 103 to 75. Of course, Kershaw is going to have the better ERA, he pitches at sea level, Gray pitches at 5,280 ft. above sea level!
Gray has given up just 13 homers on the year and that’s a remarkable number – Kershaw has let 12 out of the park. Gray has potential to be a fantastic pitcher for a few solid years to come, the problem is Coors, it’s a grind at a mile-high, and to boot – walks, he allows too many. Gray has allowed 38 walks to Kershaw’s 15.
The Dodgers rebound from a loss on Friday night and come back tonight with a vengeance. They touch up Jon Gray for the moneyline win at -148.
