Colorado Rockies vs Oakland Athletics Prediction

The Rockies haven’t found much success this season but the good news is they get to face off against the Oakland Athletics who are in the same bet. Quantrill has been strong this season for the Rockies and he’s going to continue that success here. In his last start he gave up only one run and he’s going to give up only one run again here. The A’s bats are going to be ice cold here, and Colorado will get the job done. Back the Rockies on the money line.
