Cleveland Guardians vs Colorado Rockies Prediction

I’m on the Guardians here. I’m just not a believer in Ryan Feltner, and while it feels like a lot of the value is situated with the Rockies at home in their current form, I just think that the Guardians are still the better team with the better bullpen. It was one bad inning that did Cleveland in on Monday but I think the Guardians come back with a vengeance here behind McKenzie so give me the Guardians here.
