The Line: Chicago Cubs -125 / Colorado Rockies +115 -- Over/Under: 12
The Chicago Cubs and Colorado Rockies meet Tuesday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The Chicago Cubs look for a win after winning six of their last eight games. The Cubs have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Chicago Cubs have won seven of their last nine games when scoring more than one run. Javier Baez leads the Cubs with 77 hits and 44 RBI while Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant have combined for 128 hits and 83 RBI. Jose Quintana gets the ball, and he is 4-5 with a 3.77 ERA and 66 strikeouts this season. Quintana is 2-1 with a 4.32 ERA and 25 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies look fo a victory after splitting their last eight games. The Rockies have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 11 of their last 15 games. The Colorado Rockies have won 13 of their last 16 games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 85 hits and 57 RBI while Trevor Story and David Dahl have combined for 142 hits and 70 RBI. Peter Lambert gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 1.29 ERA and nine strikeouts this season. This will be Lambert’s second career game against the Cubs.
The Cubs are 7-1 in their last 8 Tuesday games, 10-4 in their last 14 during game 2 of a series and 3-8 in Quintana's last 11 road starts. The Rockies are 5-1 in their last 6 home games vs. a left-handed starter, 13-3 in their last 16 home games and 10-4 in their last 14 overall. The under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The under is 5-2 in Rockies last 7 home games. The over is 5-2 in Quintana's last 7 road starts.
The Cubs have lost five of the last six games Quintana has pitched, and he has a 5.02 ERA and a .288 allowed batting average on the road. Lambert has just one start and seven career innings under his belt, but that one game against these Cubs, allowing four hits and one run while striking out nine. Obviously the Cubs will be much more comfortable given that they just faced the 22-year-old, but you can make a strong argument that the Rockies have a starting pitching edge here. Also, it's Coors, so any time I can gt the Rockies and plus money, I usually consider it.
