San Francisco California
The Line: Colorado Rockies +102 / San Francisco Giants -110 -- Over/Under: 7.5
The Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants meet Friday in MLB action at AT&T Park.
The Colorado Rockies could use a win here to snap a six-game losing streak. The Rockies have allowed 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The Colorado Rockies have lost 10 straight games won allowing at least one run. Offensively, Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 13 hits and six RBI while Charlie Blackmon and David Dahl have combined for 24 hits and 10 RBI. Chad Bettis gets the ball, and he is 0-2 with a 11.88 ERA and five strikeouts this season. Bettis is 3-4 with a 4.59 ERA and 42 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants look to win back-to-back games for the first time this season. The Giants have scored nine runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last 10 games. The San Francisco Giants are 3-9 this season when scoring five or less runs. Brandon Crawford leads the Giants with 13 hits and one RBI while Steven Duggar and Brandon Belt have combined for 21 hits and 13 RBI. Drew Pomeranz gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 4.00 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season. Pomeranz is 2-0 with a 1.29 ERA and 18 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 1-5 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series, 0-4 in their last 4 vs. National League West and 1-4 in Bettis' last 5 road starts. The Giants are 1-4 in their last 5 vs. National League West, 2-8 in their last 10 home games and 0-4 in their last 4 Friday games. The Rockies are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in San Francisco and 4-1 in Bettis' last 5 starts vs. Giants. The over is 5-2-1 in Giants last 8 overall. The over is 9-3-3 in Bettis' last 15 starts overall.
The San Francisco Giants are a team that I haven't been able to figure out just yet, and they're also a team I'm not trying to back due to an offense that's downright painful. With that said, the Colorado Rockies aren't playing any better and have lost 10 straight games when allowing at least one run. Bettis is also one of many Rockies pitchers who has been awful to start the season. The San Francisco Giants have to win back-to-back games at some point. It might as well come against a Rockies team that's got nothing going for them at the moment.
