NL West action resumes Saturday as the Colorado Rockies look to upset a streaking Los Angeles Dodgers group.
This is game two of a three game set between these clubs. If Colorado builds early momentum Friday, it could carry over. However, the Rockies sport an MLB worst 15 road wins, and have long exited the playoff scene.
Los Angeles, meanwhile, has won 12 of 13, and remains in firm control of the top NL wildcard. The Dodgers have reached the bottom of their rotation, but have enough bullpen depth to contain a Rockies outfit ranked last in road offense.
The Dodgers are 10-3 this season vs. Coloraro.
Colorado is simply playing spoiler while the wheat and chaff separate and the regular season unwinds. As mentioned, the Rockies have done little away from home this year other than become an easy mark to wager against when not at Coors Field.
No more can be expected tonight as the Rockies face the World Series champs after dropping two of three vs. a gutted Cubs team.
Jon Gray gets the Saturday call for Colorado. The quality rhp has struggled somewhat this year going 7-10 with a 4.13 earned run average. Gray has allowed eight runs in his last 21 innings vs. Los Angeles to exacerbte his 2-6 road record.
Colorado is 9-14 when Gray appears.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers should be fully locked in tonight, even if Colorado pulls a Friday stunner. Los Angeles has motivation to win easy contests while chasing San Francisco for the division lead. A veteran championship group like the Dodgers know when to shift competitive gears.
That stated, LAD has ripped 12 of their last 13, recently sweeping San Diego. Los Angeles also took down NYM & Pittsburgh in that span.
Former Cy Young winner David Price makes his 12th 2021 start tonight. The 35-year-old stands 4-2 with a 3.82 ERA this season after opting to sit during last year’s pandemic.
An LAD bullpen member early in his comeback, Price resumed starter duties July 9th. Since, the lefty offers a 4.00 ERA through 32 innings. Los Angeles is 18-14 when Price appears, but 4-7 when he starts.
Price allowed three runs and two walks in four Aug 22nd frames as LAD lost 7-2 vs. the Mets.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
The stats lean so heavily toward LAD here that I cannot advise anything other than a Dodgers win. A big wager is required to return meaningful profit going that route, however. With David Price starting for Los Angeles, the best play is taking the over eight runs at -120.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over the Number
The Dodgers will add their usual stout run total as Colorado does enough against Price to eke past the O/U.
