Colorado Rockies

The Rockies tumble into this Friday night contest sporting a 40-34 record that ranks them 2nd in the NL West. At the present time, the Los Angeles Dodgers lead the division and wield a 10-game lead over the Rockies. With this in mind, it’s clear the Rockies have a chance to prove themselves against the top dog in the NL West this Friday evening.

However, in three games so far this season, Colorado has yet to best Los Angeles. And since Colorado face the Dodgers at home in all three of those, there’s not much hope for them on the road this Friday night. Nevertheless, Colorado will be sending RHP German Marquez to the mound this evening. He enters this MLB online betting contest sporting a 7-3 record as well as a 4.57 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. But since he’s posted an 11.12 ERA in his last 5 innings pitched, things aren’t looking up for Colorado.

Players to Watch: Trevor Story (17 HR, 48 RBI, .294 BA), Nolan Arenado (18 HR, 60 RBI, .328 BA), and Charlie Blackmon (17 HR, 48 RBI, .336 BA).

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers dodge their way into this NL West contest sporting a 51-25 record that, as previously alluded to, ranks them No. 1 in the division. Although they’ve built up a decent lead over the Rockies, Los Angeles will nevertheless be looking to build on it here.

To take care of their divisional opponent, Los Angeles will be sending none other than RHP Walker Buehler to the mound. So far this season, Buehler has amassed a 7-1 record as well as a 3.06 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP. In his last 7 innings pitched, Buehler has posted an astounding 0.29 WHIP and a 0.000 ERA. This unequivocally pegs Los Angeles as the betting favorite tonight.

Players to Watch: Cody Bellinger (24 HR, 60 RBI, .358 BA), Max Muncy (17 HR, 46 RBI, .283 BA), and Justin Turner (7 HR, 29 RBI, .310 BA).
