Philadelphia Phillies vs Colorado Rockies Prediction

I’m on the over in this one. Aaron Nola’s had a history of giving up the long ball and giving up a fair bit of hard contact and at Coors, I think the Rockies could be live to put up some runs here off of Nola. On the other side, I don’t trust Hudson and the Phillies have been one of the hottest lineups in baseball over the last month or so during this hot run. I think this game ends up being fairly high-scoring, so give me the over here.

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