San Francisco is 4-1 in their last 5 road games while the under is 11-2 in their last 13 games overall. The over is 8-3 in Colorado’s last 11 home games.
I wish I could get behind the Rockies, but the reality here is that there’s simply no backing Jose Urena who has been terrible for the last couple of months. The Giants haven’t been spectacular, but the Rockies just don’t have the power to constantly be coming back from the problems that Urena causes when opposing lineups tee off on him. I think the Giants keep up the solid play on the road and in this series, so give me the Giants here.
