San Francisco Giants vs Colorado Rockies Prediction

I’m on the Rockies here. I was initially looking at the over, but the thing here is that this is a tough scheduling spot for the Giants after playing in Philly on Monday and having the quick turnaround to play at Coors Field and Kyle Harrison’s never pitched at Coors for one, but two, the Rockies haven’t done much well this season, except hit left-handed pitching in the last couple of weeks. I think this could be another solid spot for the Rockies to come through offensively, so give me Colorado here.
