Colorado Rockies vs San Francisco Giants Prediction

The Colorado Rockies are the hottest team in baseball with 7 straight wins, and they're making bettors hand over fist during this stretch. However, let's not forget how the Rockies played before this stretch. The Rockies aren't a good baseball team. Ryan Feltner also hasn't been a good pitcher this season. The San Francisco Giants have issues of their own, but they've been better than the Rockies overall, and Kyle Harrison has been dealing. The Giants have won 6 straight games, Harrison has pitched. Give me the Giants and the reasonable price if forced to pick, as I'm still banking on the Rockies returning to a pumpkin.
