Los Angeles Dodgers-COLORADO ROCKIES (Over 8½)
Clayton Kershaw is starting for the Dodgers, so it might seem like a bad idea to expect scoring. Ten of Kershaw’s past 12 starts stayed under the total. But he has been involved in a couple of high-scoring games in Colorado this season. Rockies right-hander Chad Bettis has allowed 22 runs in 30 innings, and the Dodgers’ bats will like him.
