Colorado is 5-1 in their last 6 games and 8-2 in their last 10 Friday games. The over is 4-0 in Colorado’s last 4 games. Arizona is 50-110 in their last 160 games and 5-21 in their last 26 Friday games. The under is 4-0-1 in Arizona’s last 5 home games. The over is 3-0-1 in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings.

Colorado has started the season playing well and has a better record than I thought they would at this point. Arizona is right at .500 and has struggled on the offensive side. Both of these pitchers have been outstanding this season, so this should be a low scoring game. I like the value the Rockies have on the road here, but I am taking the under in this one.
