Rockies vs. Phillies Prediction

I’m on the over here. I lean towards the Rockies for the side because I can’t pay this kind of price with Aaron Nola, but I’m really not looking to trust the Rockies with Cal Quantrill on the bump if I can help it. These are two teams that can produce runs in bunches and Citizens Bank is fairly hitter-friendly as well. I think runs are coming in bunches here, so give me the over in this one.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
