The Colorado Rockies will close their three-game set with the Washington Nationals this Sunday from Coors Field. Washington secured the first two matchups after holding on in the ninth to win by one last night, 7-6. 

Nationals Betting Preview

Washington moved to 3-6 after defeating Colorado yesterday. The Nats have capitalized on the hitters’ park and put together their highest run total of the season. The Minnesota offense is scoring 4.37 runs per game, while batting .255, with a .333 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.18 ERA, with a 0.92 WHIP.

Chad Kuhl will get the start for Washington. The seventh-year pitcher will face his former team here, and he put up a fight in season debut versus Tampa, giving up four runs over five innings of work. Kuhl made twelve starts at Coors Field last season, posting a 3-4 record, with a 5.04 ERA, and 46 strikeouts.

Rockies Betting Preview

Colorado moved to 3-6 after losing to Washington. The Rockies have dropped five of their last six games, and with St. Louis coming to town this week, they need to stop the bleeding sooner rather than later.  The Colorado offense is scoring 4.37 runs per game, while batting .255, with a .300 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.49 ERA, with a 1.47 WHIP. Kris Bryant has recorded a hit in each of the first nine games, and he leads the Rockies in average (.324)

Ryan Feltner will take the bump for Colorado. The second-year pitcher had a tough time dealing with the Dodgers’ bats, giving up five runs in  less than five innings, but still managing to strike out seven. 

Washington vs Colorado Trends

Washington is 3-5 against the spread this season, with a 4-3-1 over/under record. Colorado is 2-6 ATS, with a 4-4 O/U record.

Corey's Free Pick

A sweep from Washington here at home may leave a sour taste in the Colorado clubhouse, and I think they find a way to avoid it. The chance to tee off on one of their former pitchers should also added an extra motive, so back the Rockies here at Coors Sunday.
