The Philadelphia Phillies and the Colorado Rockies meet in MLB action from Coors Field on Saturday. Let’s dive into the odds, starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.


Philadelphia is listed as a -150 road favorite while Colorado is a +130 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 11.5 runs.

Starting Pitching Matchup

Ranger Suarez will make his season debut here and went 10-7 with a 3.65 ERA and 129 strikeouts this season. Ryan Feltner will start here and is 2-2 with a 5.08 ERA and 33 strikeouts for the Rockies this season.

Matchup History

Philadelphia’s 6-3 win over the Rockies on Friday made it four straight wins and nine wins in the last ten meetings for the Phillies in this head-to-head matchup.


Philadelphia is 6-1 in their last 7 games against a team with a losing record and 1-4 in their last 5 road games while the under is 7-1 in their last 8 games following a win. Colorado is 8-3 in their last 11 games overall and 6-20 in their last 26 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 5-2 in their last 7 game two matchups.


I’m backing the Rockies here. Believe it or not, and I couldn’t for a minute with Ryan Feltner, but the Rockies have won Feltner’s last 4 starts and now the Rockies get to bounce back against the Phillies on Saturday with a pitcher in Ranger Suarez going for Philadelphia making his season debut and in one of the tougher road environments in the majors. I wasn’t all that thrilled with Colorado’s performance on Friday, but I think they’re primed and ready to bounce back here. Give me the Rockies.
