Shane’s Free Pick

Freeland has had issues bouncing back after bad starts and it’s going to be no different in this game. The Phillies have the talent to tee off on him, and they are going to have no issue getting the job done again here. The Rockies also don’t have the offense to keep up, and the Phillies are going to secure the win. Back the Phillies -1.5. 

Shane’s Pick Phillies -1.5
