I get the case that could be made for both sides as San Diego has the pitching edge but the Rockies play far, far better at home compared to their play on the road. Instead, I’m going to side with the over. Snell hasn’t been going deep into games and it’s fatigued a not so good Padres’ bullpen, while Kyle Freeland’s had issues since coming back from a shoulder injury in limited appearances this season. I think the balls will be flying at Coors Field once again, so give me the over here.
