The Los Angeles Dodgers visit the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday for a three-game battle between division rivals.
The Rockies are coming off one of the more interesting series of the season. They won two of their three games over the Angels but were embarrassed in the midst by losing, 25-1, on Saturday night.
Tonight, they face Clayton Kershaw — an old foe they've seen plenty of times who has shown few signs of slowing down.
Kershaw is 9-4 this season with a 2.72 ERA. He may not be as dominant as he once was, but he's still one of the top pitchers in the majors.
Our models consider quantitative and qualitative factors for every angle of the game — including rest, matchups, stylistic differences, lingering injuries, history and more — to come up with a fair value line for every MLB player prop on the market.
