Los Angeles Dodgers @ Colorado Rockies Tips 


The 2020 World Series winners the LA Dodgers take on the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field on Saturday, April 3. This will be the second consecutive game between these two teams; on Thursday (April 1), the Dodgers lost to the Rockies by eight runs to five in both team’s opening match of the 2021 MLB season.  

Last year saw the LA Dodgers win their first World Series since 1988. For manager Dave Roberts and club president Stan Kasten, plus the wealthy investors who make up the owners of the LA Dodgers, this is only Phase One of a master plan to dominate Major League Baseball for the foreseeable future. The team they have put together wasn’t constructed for the purpose of winning just one World Series, the target is to win several.

I’m backing the Dodgers to perform better in Friday’s rematch with the Rockies. The first match was a 13-run thriller, but this will be a more controlled affair, with under 11.5 runs in total.

Head to Head


The LA Dodgers and the Colorado Rockies played each other 26 times over the past two seasons, with the Dodgers leading 20-6. During the 2020 season, they faced each other 10 times, with the Dodgers finishing with a 7-3 record. Although Brooklyn defeated Colorado twice during preseason, in their opening game of the new season the Rockies triumphed 8 runs to 5. 

LA Dodgers Form


There is huge pressure on the Dodgers to carry on where they left off last year, but based on their opening performance against the Colorado Rockies, they may need a little time to bed in. Last season, with its reduced schedule of 60 games, the Dodgers finished with a 43-17 regular-season record, the best in league. 

In Spring Training, the Dodgers finished 5th in the Cactus League with a 13-11 record that included two wins over the Colorado Rockies.  The Dodgers finished their pre-season with two wins earlier this week over their neighbors the LA Angels. They were certainly favorites to defeat Colorado going into Thursday’s game, so the team will no doubt be both disappointed and out for revenge. 

Colorado Rockies Form


Last season the Colorado Rockies finished fourth in the National League West Division with a record of 26 wins and 34 defeats. In 10 meetings with the LA Dodgers, Colorado finished 3-7. Things didn’t improve during Spring Training, where the Rockies lost both of their games against the Dodgers.

Overall, Colorado finished seventh in the Cactus League during spring training, with a record of 14-14. The Rockies finished preseason with two victories, a 10-2 thrashing of the San Diego Padres, and a 2-1 win over the Chicago White Sox. On Thursday Colorado got off to a dream start to the 2021 season, defeating the defending champions in their home stadium. Will they be able to do it again on Saturday?

Verdict

The Colorado Rockies got off to a dream start on Thursday with their 8-5 victory over the reigning World Series champions the LA Dodgers. Now comes the rematch. I’m picking the Dodgers to level this series at one win each with a controlled victory on Saturday.

I’m backing the Dodgers to be in the lead by the third innings, and to maintain and add to that lead throughout the rest of the match. While Thursday’s game featured 13 runs in total, I’m predicting Saturday’s encounter to be under 11.5 total runs.
