San Francisco is 8-3 in their last 11 division games and 11-5 in their last 16 games against a right-handed starter while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall. Colorado is 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 16-36 in their last 52 games against the NL West while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.
Jon Gray has a reputation for being one of the few pitchers that actually pitches better at Coors Field, but that’s bound to happen when you’re a Denver boy, born and raised. On the other side, Logan Webb hasn’t been the money machine that he was last season, but he’s still a solid arm for the Giants and can trade zeroes with Jon Gray if called upon. It’s not automatic, but this is ons game where it feels like an under’s on the cards at Coors. Give me the under here.
