The Colorado Rockies look for another win after winning five of their last seven games. The Rockies have scored 26 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight straight games. The Colorado Rockies offense also continues to produce, and they’ve won six of their last 10 games when scoring more than three runs. DJ LeMahieu leads Colorado with 162 hits, Charlie Blackmon has 67 RBI and Nolan Arenado has 36 home runs. Chad Bettis takes the hill, and he’s 11-7 with a 5.17 ERA and 115 strikeouts this season. Bettis is 1-1 with a 7.30 ERA and 31 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 3 of a series and 1-4 in Bradleys last 5 road starts. The Rockies are 5-2 in their last 7 vs. National League West and 1-6 in their last 7 vs. a team with a losing record. The over is 37-18-3 in the last 58 meetings.
While Arizona has won a game or two recently, its a team I continue to fade and continue to make money on in the long term. The Rockies are the better team, more consistent as of late and have far more pop on their home field. Give me Colorado to win this series.
