Rockies vs. Padres Prediction

I’m on the under here. This game features a pair of starters that are dealing right now, which is a little bit more surprising to say about Cal Quantrill compared to Dylan Cease. Cease is pitching how we normally expect him to, but Quantrill’s now looking like the staff ace of this abysmal Rockies rotation. I think this has potential to be a low-scoring one early on though, so give me the under here.

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