The Line: San Francisco Giants -166 / Colorado Rockies +156 --- Over/Under: 7
The Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants meet Wednesday in MLB action at AT&T Park.
The Colorado Rockies look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last eight games. The Rockies have allowed 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games. The Colorado Rockies have lost seven of their last 12 games when allowing three or more runs. Offensively, Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 87 hits and 55 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story have combined for 164 hits and 93 RBI. Kyle Freeland gets the ball, and he is 7-6 with a 3.55 ERA and 77 strikeouts this season. Freeland is 4-2 with a 3.15 ERA and 20 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants look to stay hot after winning seven of their last nine games. The Giants have scored 11 runs in their last three games and three or more runs in eight of their last nine games. The San Francisco Giants have won six straight games when scoring more than two runs. Brandon Crawford leads the Giants with 81 hits and 35 RBI while Andrew McCutchen and Buster Posey have combined for 144 hits and 60 RBI. Madison Bumgarner gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 3.20 ERA and 17 strikeouts this season. Bumgarner is 12-7 with a 3.05 ERA and 152 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 2-5 in their last 7 road games, 0-7 in their last 7 vs. National League West and 0-4 in Freelands last 4 Wednesday starts. The Giants are 1-5 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series, 1-4 in Bumgarners last 5 home starts and 5-16 in Bumgarners last 21 starts. The Rockies are 2-7 in the last 9 meetings in San Francisco, the Giants are 5-2 in Bumgarners last 7 starts vs. Rockies and 7-3 in Bumgarners last 10 home starts vs. Rockies.
The San Francisco Giants continue to play their best ball at home where the offense shows up consistently and they just crawl their way to victory. Bumgarner also looked like Bumgarner in his last start, pitching eight shutout innings against the Padres while allowing just three hits and striking out eight. I don't bet against the Giants often at home, and I'm not betting against their ace based on his last start. He looked to be in great form. Give me the Giants and the somewhat reasonable price factoring in everything.
