Colorado Rockies vs Cincinnati Reds Prediction

The Colorado Rockies are in awful form right now, and they're not worth even a sniff with Dakota Hudson on the mound. Hudson has a near ERA of 6 on the season and while he's pitched better on the road, the Rockies still don't have success with him in the bump. The Cincinnati Reds are kind of due for a bounce back performance and this series at home is just what the doctor ordered. Also, Andrew Abbott has pitched well in his last few starts, and he's been solid on the year overall. Give me the Reds in game 1 against the Rockies, and of course I'll lay the RL to shave down the juice.
