Philadelphia is 4-6 in their last ten games, 2-6 on the road this season, and the over is 11-8 in their games.
Colorado is 3-7 in their last ten games, 7-7 at home this season, and the under is 13-5-1 in their games.
The Rockies should have the edge on the mound with Jon Gray, who has been solid this year and has had success against the Phillies previously. Philadelphia has not been great on the road, so the Rockies have some good value as they have been playing well at home of late. Give me Colorado to win.
