The Rockies are 19-41 in their last 60 during game 1 of a series and 1-4 in Hales last 5 starts. The Athletics are 18-6 in their last 24 vs. National League West and 2-5 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series. The under is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings.
The Rockies are putting runs on the board with ease and the A's are bound to breakout a big performance offensively. This line seems a tab bit too low, which is why I'm taking the over.
