The Line: San Francisco Giants -145 / Colorado Rockies +135 --- Over/Under: 8 See the Latest Odds
The San Francisco Giants look to build on their win on the road over the Diamondbacks as they host the Colorado Rockies on Monday.
The Rockies look to shake off a loss yesterday to the Los Angeles Dodgers as they stay in California for a series at AT&T park against one of the league’s best teams in the San Francisco Giants. The Rockies couldn’t be happier to see the all-star break fast approaching as they have had a tough stretch to start the year and while they have some guys who will be going to San Diego in the form of Nolan Arenado and Carlos Gonzalez they haven’t been able to stay consistent enough to challenge for a playoff spot. The Rockies will send Tyler Anderson to the mound here who will face off with Jake Peavy who is having a resurgence on the mound this year and could be a vital part of San Fran’s attempt at another World Series crown.

The Giants have been on a tear over the last couple of months and while they are just 5-5 in their last 10 contests they have as good a chance as any to win the World Series this season and are in the mix as a handful of team’s in the MLB elite. San Francisco has a ton of depth at the dish and one of the best rotations in baseball and when they get Hunter Pence back they will be even better and if they can add a bat or a piece to their rotation/bullpen they will be even more difficult to bring down in a seven game series.
Colorado is 0-4 in their last four road games, 0-4 in their last four games following a loss, and 2-5 in their last seven against the NL West while the Giants are 21-5 in their last 26 against the NL West, 5-1 in their last six home games against a lefty, and 13-5 in their last 18 home games. The Rockies are in tough here as Peavy has been pitching well and with San Fran’s depth they should get to Anderson early and often.
