The Line: Washington Nationals -132 / Colorado Rockies +110 -- Over/Under: 10
The Washington Nationals and Colorado Rockies meet Tuesday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The Washington Nationals look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Nationals have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 12 games. The Washington Nationals are 9-3 this season when scoring four or more runs. Adam Eaton leads the Nationals with 27 hits and six RBI while Anthony Rendon and Victor Robles have combined for 46 hits and 25 RBI. Patrick Corbin gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 2.36 ERA and 33 strikeouts this season. Corbin is 8-4 with a 4.82 ERA and 107 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies look to stay hot after winning seven of their last eight games. The Rockies have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in their last eight games. The Colorado Rockies are 9-4 this season when scoring four or more runs. Charlie Blackmon leads the Rockies with 27 hits and 10 RBI while Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado have combined for 50 hits and 29 RBI. Kyle Freeland gets the ball, and he is 2-3 with a 4.23 ERA and 30 strikeouts this season. Freeland is 2-0 with a 3.45 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the Nationals.
The Nationals are 10-4 in their last 14 during game 2 of a series, 5-2 in their last 7 Tuesday games and 0-4 in their last 4 road games vs. a left-handed starter. The Rockies are 15-6 in their last 21 vs. National League East, 14-2 in Freelands last 16 home starts and 19-7 in Freelands last 26 starts. The Nationals are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings and the over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The under is 45-18-4 in Freelands last 67 starts overall. The over is 4-1 in Nationals last 5 vs. National League West.
The Colorado Rockies are by far playing their best baseball of the season and finally look like the playoff contenders many expected them to be. On top of that, we're getting plus money with a pitcher in Freeland who has won 14 of his last 16 home starts and has won six of his last 10 starts as an underdog. Corbin is obviously a good pitcher in his own right, but he's also allowing a .276 batting average with eight homers in 170 career at bats against current Rockies. I like the value of the home team and the plus money here.
