The Line: Colorado Rockies +103 / New York Mets -113 --- Over/Under: 11 See the Latest Odds
The Colorado Rockies look to build on their decent outing yesterday at home against the New York Mets as they match up again on Saturday.
The Mets look to get back in the win column and continue their impressive start to the season as they face off against the Rockies at Coors Field and will look to get their bats rolling in the hitter friendly park in Denver. New York is among a handful of teams in the National League that are considered favourites to win the World Series and with the front end of their rotation being so strong it would be hard to match up with them in a seven game series even with Matt Harvey’s early season struggles. The Mets are 21-13 so far this season and are 12-7 on the road and will send Logan Verrett to the mound who is 3-0 with a 1.27 ERA while the Rockies will send Eddie Butler to counter who is 1-1 with an ERA of 3.86.

The Rockies meanwhile are always a tough team to figure out as they have a pretty solid roster with a ton of pop at the dish but their lackluster rotation and Coors Field factor always comes into factor in their decisions and as such they are two games under the .500 mark and aren’t expected to do much in the National League this season. Colorado is led by Nolan Arenado, Trevor Story, and Carlos Gonzalez but beyond that they struggle and will need to have guys like Charlie Blackmon regain his form if they’re going to make a push at the playoffs.
The Mets are 6-1 in their last seven games following a game in which they scored two or less in their previous outing, 17-8 in their last 25 overall, and 16-5 in their last 21 against a righty while the Rockies 1-5 in their last six Saturday games, 1-5 in Butler’s last six, and 4-10 in their last 14 against the NL East. Colorado is tough to figure out as they could be a playoff contender with their lineup but can’t seem to generate some consistency and against the Mets they are going to be in tough.
