The Angels are 4-0 in their last 4 Saturday games, 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 6-2 in their last 8 overall. The Rockies are 8-2 in their last 10 Saturday games, 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 3-7 in their last 10 overall. The over is 6-1-1 in Angels last 8 road games. The over is 7-2 in Rockies last 9 home games. The Angels are 9-1 in the last 10 meetings in Colorado and 13-3 in the last 16 meetings.
Jaime Barria has allowed seven runs and 13 hits in 18.2 innings this season while Kyle Freeland has allowed four runs and 11 hits in his last eight innings. Freeland is the more trustworthy pitcher in this spot due to his impressive numbers in Coors, and I have more faith in the Rockies at home than I do the Angels overall. I'll take the Rockies and the reasonable price.
