MLB Betting Trends
The under is 8-2 in the last 10 Dodgers games overall. Los Angeles is 10-4 in its last 14 games.
The under is 24-7-1 in the last 32 Rockies home games. Colorado is 1-7 in Anderson's last eight starts versus Los Angeles.
Anderson has struggled to win against LA and hasn't had a very good season compared to other Colorado starting pitchers. Hill has had some bumps in the road this season, but generally gives the Dodgers solid outings. Los Angeles wants to keep this race as close as possible and will treat this game rightfully as important. Take the visitors here as the favorites. The under is also an intriguing play since trends point that way over the last couple months at Coors Field.
