The Rockies are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 2 of a series and 1-7 in Kendricks last 8 starts. The Marlins are 3-7 in their last 10 during game 2 of a series and 4-8 in their last 12 vs. National League West. The over is 3-0-2 in the last 5 meetings in Miami.
I don't know what to make of the Marlins, but I do know their offense usually carries over to the next game when having a solid outing. I like the fish to get it done at home once again.
