Colorado Rockies @ Los Angeles Dodgers Tips 


The Colorado Rockies will once again do battle with the LA Dodgers on Wednesday, April 14 in an MLB regular season game. Both of these teams play in the National League, and both share the West Division, with the Rockies currently bottom of the five-team table with a 3-7 record, and the Dodgers top with an 8-2 slate. 

This will be the fifth time these two teams have faced each other already this season. They shared the opening four matches of the 2021 campaign, and despite the Rockies winning the season opener on April 1 the series finished 3-1 in the Dodgers favor. Those four games were all played at the Rockies’ home ground of Coors Field in Denver, but these upcoming three matches, beginning with Wednesday’s fixture, take place at the Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles.

The Rockies go into Wednesday’s fixture against the Dodgers off the back of three consecutive losses to the San Francisco Giants. By comparison, Los Angeles have won their last three matches against the Washington Nationals, and since losing their season opener against Colorado, they have lost just one other game - to the Oakland A’s. Because of this, I have to back the Dodgers to defeat the Rockies once again in another thriller, this time in a match that will feature a combined total of 12 runs or more.

  • Dodgers top of NL West Division
  • Dodgers 8-2 this season
  • Rockies 5th in NL West Division
  • Rockies 3-7 this season

Head to Head


The Colorado Rockies and the LA Dodgers have played each other 29 times over the past two seasons, with the Dodgers leading 23-6. During the 2020 season, they faced each other 10 times, with the Dodgers finishing with a 7-3 record. Although in the opening game of the new season the Rockies defeated the Dodgers 8-5, LA hit back and won their next three fixtures, the last on April 4 which they won 4-2.  

LA Dodgers Form


In 2020 the Los Angeles Dodgers won the World Series, their seventh overall and first since1988. So impressive are the team that lifted that esteemed trophy, the expectation and pressure on the Dodgers to succeed again this season is massive – and maybe a little unfair, after all it’s not as if they’ve suddenly become a team which wins the World Series regularly  like the Yankees. Fair or not, the Dodgers appear to thrive on that pressure, and already have the best record in MLB. 

After losing their opening game of the new season to Colorado, the Dodgers hit back to win their series 3-1. That was followed by three straight matches with the Oakland A’s that LA won 2-1. Finally the Dodgers played a three-game series against the Washington Nationals, and won that 3-zip. The Dodgers are now top of the NL West Division with an 8-2 record – more wins and less defeats than anyone else in Major League Baseball right now. 

Colorado Rockies Form


Poor Rockies – when they defeated the defending World Series champions, the mighty LA Dodgers on the opening day of the season in a 13-run thriller 8-5, they had to have thought “Wow, we’ve just beat the champs, we must be pretty great too!” While they may yet prove to be just that, right now they are bottom of the West Division (the Dodgers are top) with a 3-7 record. 

After losing their opening series vs the Dodgers 1-3, Colorado defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks two victories to one. The Rockies looked great in the two matches they won, as the scorelines of 8-0 and 7-3 suggest. However they were then routed in a three-match series vs the San Francisco Giants 3-0.

Verdict

So far the Colorado Rockies have a 100% away record – all defeats! The Rockies played three away games – their recent series against the Giants – and lost all three at San Francisco’s largely empty Oracle Park. Now comes three matches at the Dodgers Stadium, home of the reigning World Series champions the LA Dodgers.

For what it’s worth, the Dodgers have a 100% home record, winning their three recent matches against the Washington Nationals at the Dodgers Stadium. I’m backing LA to make that four home victories with a win over the Rockies on Wednesday. Games between LA and Colorado have featured between six and 17 runs this season, and the run total in this match will be around 12.
