Los Angeles Dodgers at Colorado Rockies Prediction

Heading into Saturday’s National League West showdown between Los Angeles and Colorado, the over-under line is set at 11.5 runs. However, even though this game is being played at Coors Field, I see Clayton Kershaw bouncing back from a rough outing. On the other side, look for Kyle Freeland to keep Los Angeles’ offense in check. I recommend taking the under.
