Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
The Dodgers know how important these games are. I do not expect to see them slow down.
Los Angeles is the better team and I feel they will show that in this game. I am not that confident the Rockies will pull the upset.
I look for Scherzer to keep up his dominance and for the Dodgers to hit around Freeland enough to get a win.
I like the Dodgers to win and for the total to go under 10.5 runs.
