Diamondbacks at Rockies picks and predictions

Prediction

Rockies 5, Diamondbacks 4

Money line

This will be Henry’s first experience pitching in the thin Colorado air.

The Rockies are 33-29 at home this season, while the Diamondbacks are 20-32 on the road. Both teams have played each other fairly evenly all season.

Feltner has allowed 8 runs in his last 9 1/3 innings but he is used to pitching in his home park.

Take the ROCKIES (-130).

Run line/Against the spread

Six games between the 2 teams have been decided by only 1 run, although 5 of the Rockies’ last 6 wins have been by 2 or more runs.

Three of the Diamondbacks’ last 8 losses have been by only 1 run.

I like the Rockies to win, but am not confident in a cover.

Take the DIAMONDBACKS +1.5 (-175).

Over/Under

Of the 15 games between Arizona and Colorado, only 2 have had totals of 12 or more runs.

However, Feltner’s last 2 starts had 18 or more total runs.

Take UNDER 11.5 (+100).
