The Astros are 105-214 in their last 319 road games and 1-4 in Oberholtzers last 5 road starts. The Rockies are 9-21 in their last 30 interleague home games and 1-8 in Kendricks last 9 starts. The Astros are 2-7 in the last 9 meetings in Colorado and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The over is 15-5 in the last 15 meetings between these two teams. The Rockies also produce tons of runs at home. I like the over in this spot.
