The Cincinnati Reds will head to Denver to face the Colorado Rockies in a three-game set from Coors Field this week.
Reds Betting Preview
Cincinnati moved to 18-21 after taking two of three from Miami. The Reds managed to win three straight games prior to dropping the series finale to the Marlins, and they’ll look to inch closer to .500 at Coors this week. The Cincinnati offense is scoring 3.78 runs per game, while batting .244, with a .324 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.22 ERA, with a 1.50 WHIP. Jonathan India has a hit in eight of the last ten games, and he leads Cincy in hits (43) and runs scored (27). TJ Friedl leads the team in batting (.306), but he missed the series in Miami, and his status should be monitored coming into this one with Colorado. Jake Fraley went on a surge in South Florida with eight RBI versus the Marlins to bring his team-lead to 28.
Hunter Greene (0-3, 3.69 ERA, 51 Ks) will begin the contest for Cincinnati. The second year flamethrower only managed to strike out four in 5.1 innings versus the Mets last week en route to his second straight losing decision. Greene has only allowed more than two runs once in his last four starts, but he hasn’t received the proper run support.
Rockies Betting Preview
Colorado moved to 17-24 after dropping two of three to Philadelphia. The Rockies avoided being swept by Philadelphia to keep their strong start to May alive, and they’ll look to win their fourth series this month. The Colorado offense is scoring 4.5 runs per game, while batting .257, with a .311 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.34 ERA, with a 1.50 WHIP. Elias Diaz has a hit in eight of the last ten games, and he leads the Rockies in batting (.328). C.J. Cron has produced a run in four of the last five games, and he now leads the team in RBI (19). Randal Grichuk has a hit in each of his first eleven appearances.
Connor Seabold (1-0, 4.56 ERA, 17 Ks) will get the call for Colorado. The third-year pitcher has made nine appearances this season, and he’s been solid in his last two starting opportunities. Seabold only allowed one run in five full innings versus Pittsburgh on the road last week to earn the first winning decision of his career.
Cincinnati vs Colorado Trends
Cincinnati is 24-16 against the spread this season, with a 21-19 O/U record. Colorado is 19-22 ATS this year, with a 16-25 over/under record.
Corey’s Free Pick
TJ Friedl’s status will be huge for this series at the most hitter-friendly ballpark in the majors. The Rockies have turned things around and played well this month, winning nine of their first thirteen games, and I like them getting off to a strong start versus Cincy. Hunter Greene may struggle in his first career start at Coors Field, as most pitchers tend to do in their first trip to the Mile High. Spot Colorado the runs for safety versus Cincy Monday night.
