Rockies Look to Build on Tuesday

The Rockies were able to knock off the Twins on Tuesday and they were able to get to the bullpen. The Rockies scored four runs in the top of the 5th and that was the difference. The Rockies are averaging 4.06 runs while their pitching is giving up 5.63 runs per game. Ezequiel Tovar hit a home run and drove in three RBIs. The offense is ranked 21st in the league while the pitching is 30th. The offense hasn’t been good enough for a team that plays at Coors Field. Ryan McMahon has hit 10 home runs and driven in 34 RBIs so far this season. Getting the start for the Rockies will be Austin Gomber who sits with a 1-3 record and an ERA of 3.38. In his last start against the St Louis Cardinals, he went five innings giving up six hits and four runs. 

Why Rockies Will Win

  • The Twins have lost three of their last four games as favorites against National League opponents.
  • The Rockies have won four of their last six games as underdogs against AL Central opponents.
  • The Twins have failed to cover the run line in seven of their last eight games as favorites after playing the previous day.
  • The underdogs have covered the run line in six of the Twins' last seven games at Target Field.

Twins Bullpen Blew It

The Twins bullpen blew the game on Tuesday. Caleb Thielbar didn’t record an out and gave up three htis and four runs. The Twins are averaging 4.38 runs, while their pitching is giving up 4.43 runs per game. The offense is ranked 16th in the league while the pitching is ranked 17th. Especially as of late the Twins offense has been an inconsistent, and they need to find a way to get more consistent offense. Ryan Jeffers has been strong for the Twins and he has hit 12 home runs and driven in 35 RBIs so far this season. Getting the start for the Twins will be Pablo Lopez who sits with a 5-6 record and an ERA of 5.45. In his last start against the New York Yankees, he went four innings giving up four hits and seven runs. 

Why the Twins Will Win

  • The Rockies have lost 15 of their last 17 games following a road win.
  • The Twins have won six of their last seven day games against National League opponents following a home loss.
  • The Twins have covered the run line in each of their last four games as home favorites against National League opponents following a loss.
  • The Rockies have failed to cover the run line in four of their last five road games following a road win.

Colorado Rockies vs Minnesota Twins Prediction

Lopez has had some major struggles this season and he’s going to really struggle again here. Lopez sits with an ERA of 5.45 and in his last start he gave up seven runs. Gomber is coming off a game where he gave up four runs and the Twins bats are going to tee off on him here also. The Twins and Rockies are both going to run up the score here, and that is going to be the difference here. Back the over to cash here.
