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


Cincinnati is listed as a -125 road favorite while Colorado is a +105 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 11.5 runs.

Starting Pitching Matchup

Hunter Greene will start for Cincinnati here and is 0-3 with a 3.69 ERA and 51 strikeouts this season. Connor Seabold will start for Colorado and is 1-0 with a 4.56 ERA and 17 strikeouts this season.

Matchup History

Cincinnati’s 10-0 win back on September 4th, 2022, made it four straight head-to-head meetings between these two teams without back-to-back winners.


Cincinnati is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall and 16-36 in their last 52 games against the NL West while the over is 6-0 in their last 6 series-opening games. Colorado is 5-2 in their last 7 home games and 9-4 in their last 13 games overall while the under is 7-1 in their last 8 games against a team with a losing record.


I’m backing the Reds here. I like Hunter Greene’s stuff and Greene is a pitcher that’s familiar with pitching in a hitter friendly park playing for the Reds, and being at Coors Field is tough, but it’s not something he’s not capable of dealing with. Connor Seabold is a pitcher that I’ve still had issues backing going back to last year with Boston and I think he struggles to match zeroes with Greene here. Give me Cincinnati.
