Colorado Rockies vs San Francisco Giants Prediction

The San Francisco Giants should be favored for obvious reasons, as they're the better team at home. However, the Giants as a team don't deserve to be this big of a favorite given their inconsistent play. Yes, the Colorado Rockies are awful, and Dakota Hudson has horrible numbers, but the Rockies have had a decent week and Hudson has been much better when not pitching at Coors. In 22.2 road innings, Hudson has an ERA under 4 and a .200 allowed batting average. We're getting more than 1.5 times our money. I'll take a stab with the Rockies on the road.
