Can Maeda Cool COL-LAD OVER Trend?

Kenta Maeda Los Angeles Dodgers MLB

The Colorado Rockies trimmed the Los Angeles Dodgers’ lead in the National League West to a half-game with a 7-5 win Friday night. The story for bettors, however, is that the final score keeps alive an OVER trend that has been dominant at the betting window when the two foes meet.

Shark Bites
  • Dodgers are 0-4 SU in the previous four meetings with the Rockies.
  • Rockies are 5-1 SU in their last six games versus teams with a winning record.
  • Rockies are 4-1 SU in their last five versus teams from the NL West.

Last night’s OVER was the fifth in the previous six meetings between the two NL West clubs at Coors Field as well as the 19th in the previous 26 meetings overall.

Tasked with keep those Rockies bats at bay will be impressive rookie Kenta Maeda, who has put together a trio of excellent performances to get his MLB career off to a flying start.

Maeda enters Saturday’s meeting at Coors Field with a 2-0 record, microscopic 0.47 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP. All three of his starts have come against teams from within the division, so both he and the Dodgers will look to keep the quality starts chugging along.

Countering for the Rockies is expected to be Tyler Chatwood. The righty is 2-1 with a 2.79 ERA in three starts so far this season.

With the Rockies’ win Friday night, they extended their winning streak versus the Dodgers to five-straight games at Coors Field.
