Colorado Rockies vs San Diego Padres Prediction

The Colorado Rockies have come out of nowhere this week and turned into a money making machine with 6 straight wins. The problem is we know this isn't going to last, so I'm not going to jump on the bandwagon just to fall off. The Rockies aren't good, folks. Michael King hasn't allowed a run in his last 13 innings, and he's holding hitters to a .167 batting average at home. The San Diego Padres also can't allow games like this to slip away if they're serious about making a division push. Give me the Padres and the RL for max betting value. No excuses for the Padres at home.
