The Colorado Rockies will play the Detroit Tigers in Game 1 of their series at Comerica Park on Friday night.

The Colorado Rockies are 8-4 this season and have won four of their last six games. Colorado is coming off of a series win against Philadelphia, where they won two of the three games. The Colorado pitching staff has a 3.96 ERA, a 1.39 WHIP, and a .274 opponent batting average this season. The Rockies offense has scored 62 runs with a .284 batting average and a .349 on base percentage. C.J. Cron has six home runs and 16 RBI’s for the Rockies this season. The projected starter for Colorado is Antonio Senzatela, who is 1-0 this season with a 2.16 ERA and a 2.04 WHIP over 8.1 innings pitched.

The Detroit Tigers are 5-7 this season and have lost three of their last four games. Detroit is coming off of a series loss to the Yankees, where they lost two of the three games.

The over is 3-0-1 in Colorado’s last 4 games and the under is 4-0 in Colorado’s last 4 game 1’s of a series. Detroit is 0-4 in their last 4 game 1’s of a series and the under is 4-0 in Detroit’s last 4 interleague games. Colorado is 1-7 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings. The under is 15-5-1 in these two teams last 21 head to head meetings.

Antonio Senzatela has been pretty much fortunate to keep such a low ERA while his WHIP is over 2. This is a sign that he is due to give up a lot of runs. Skubal struggled in his first start of the season, but looked much better against the Royals last time out. Colorado has been very good offensively and should give the young Skubal a solid test. I like the over in this matchup.
