LA Dodgers vs. Colorado,
09/02/2013 16:10 EDT,
Score: 10 - 8
Point Spread: -1½/-117 LA Dodgers
*5 Star MLB TOP Play of Day* The Los Angeles Dodgers are 51-13 in their last 64 games overall. They have ace Clayton Kershaw on the mound Monday afternoon in Colorado. Kershaw has been easily the most dominating pitcher in baseball this year. The Rockies lineup is shorthanded without star Carlos Gonzalez. Chad Bettis starts for the Rockies. He is a youngster who struggled in AAA but was moved up to the majors because the Rockies don't have any pitching depth. Bettis has struggled in the majors as well, and I expect him to be hit hard by the Dodgers offense. This is a massive pitching mismatch. The Dodgers are 23-4 in their last 27 road games. They are 6-0 in Kershaw's last 6 road starts against a team with a losing record. The Rockies are 1-5 in Bettis' last 6 starts. This one should get ugly. Take the Dodgers -1.5 big!
