Rockies at Dodgers picks and predictions
Dodgers 6, Rockies 2
The Dodgers (-380) will cost more than 3 1/2 times your potential return, and there is never any way to justify that kind of risk for such a small reward.

The DODGERS -2.5 (-120) are risky business on the run line, but Los Angeles covered the big inflated line in Tuesday's game, edging the Rockies +2.5 (+100) by a 5-2 count. Don't go crazy risking big money, but L.A. is worth a small-unit play.
The UNDER 9.5 (-122) is the lean here. If the game were in Denver it would be a different story. However, the Under is the play here, going 8-2-2 in the past 12 games overall.
And if you needed further proof the Under is the play, the Rockies have managed 3 or fewer runs in 6 consecutive road games, averaging just 1.8 runs per game during the unimpressive span. The Under is 4-1-1 in the last 6 road outings for Colorado.
