The total has gone OVER in 5 of Colorado's last 6 games at home.

Colorado are 10-4 SU in their last 14 games when playing at home against Arizona.

 

Prediction

The Rockies offense exploded in the last series vs Brewers scoring over 7 runs per game but they might have some troubles against Zach Davies who has been solid all season and has allowed only 3 runs in 16.1 innings pitched vs Rockies this year. German Marquez will start for the Rockies who has been up and down this season but has been decent against the Dbacks in his career. Expect a close game but the Dbacks have been better and have won 4 straight games with Davies on the mound. Take the Dbacks.

PICK: Diamondbacks ML (-105)
