The Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres face off on Friday in their second game of the MLB season at Petco Park. In Game 1 it was the Rockies that were able to secure the 7-2 victory. 

Rockies Betting Preview

The Rockies have a ton of question marks surrounding this season, but at least for the first game of the season, they sure looked impressive. The Rockies scored three runs in the 5th inning and that helped pace them to victory. C.J. Cron had a monster game finishing with four hits, two runs, and five RBIs. On the mound for the Rockies will be Kyle Freeland and last season he finished with a 9-11 record and an ERA of 4.53. 

Padres Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is the Padres who had some issues with the pitching in the first game. Blake Snell had nine strikeouts, but also gave up three runs. Manny Machado finished with a hit and an RBI. Trent Grishman finished with one hit and one run. On the mound for the Padres will be Nick Martinez who finished last season with a 4-4 record and an ERA of 3.47. The Padres are going to need Martinez to step up, and put the pressure on the Rockies bats.

Shane’s Free Pick

This game is going to be higher scoring. Martinez is going to struggle to slow down the Rockies bats, but the Padres bats are going to be better here against Freeland. Look for both teams to go over six runs, and that is going to mean that this is a very easy winner. Back the over to cash. Buy this all the way up to 11.5 runs if you want.
