Preview

The Colorado Rockies will meet for the second time this season the Philadelphia Phillies in a 4-game series at the Citizens Bank Park. The Rockies won the last series 2-1 at Colorado.

Colorado Rockies

The Rockies get here with a 10-5 record after winning their last series 2-1 against the Detroit Tigers. The team is averaging 4.64 runs while allowing 4.86 runs per game. CJ Cron leads the team with 6 home runs and 17 RBI while Connor Joe is batting for a .327 AVG.

Chad Kuhl leads the pitching staff with 2 wins recorded and a 1.10 ERA and 13 strikeouts.

Probable Pitcher: 

Kyle Freeland (0-2, 7.71 ERA) will start for the Rockies in the 1st game of the series. Freeland struck out three in five innings, allowing two runs on six hits, a walk and a hit batsman in a 6-5 win Tuesday against Philadelphia. He did not factor into the decision. He pitched 2 games against the Phillies and had a 4.90 ERA and struckout 6.

Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies get here with a 6-9 record after losing their last series against the Brewers 1-2. The team is averaging 4.27 runs per game while allowing 3.75 runs. Bryce Harper leads the team in RBI's with 4. Nick Castellanos is batting for .317 avg and Kyle Schwarber leads the team with 4 home runs and 9 RBI. 

Aaron Nola didn't factor into the decision during Sunday's 1-0 loss to Milwaukee, allowing one hit and one walk with seven strikeouts in seven scoreless innings.

Probable Pitcher:

Kyle Gibson (1-1, 3.57 ERA) will be on the mound for the Phillies in the 1st game of the series. Gibson allowed 3 runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three in six innings in a 6-5 loss Tuesday in Colorado. He did not factor into the decision.

BETTING TRENDS

Colorado are 10-4 SU in their last 14 games.

Colorado are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games against Philadelphia.

Philadelphia are 3-9 SU in their last 12 games.

Philadelphia are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games at home.

Prediction

The Rockies have lost only one game on the road so far this season and they're 6-2 last 8 games vs Phillies. On the other hand the Phillies have lost 4 of their last 5 games at home. Last time these two pitchers met the Rockies won 6-5 and with both teams allowing more than 4 goals per game I think the best play is the over.

PICK: Over 8.5 (-110)
