Preview

The Colorado Rockies and the San Francisco Giants will play the third game of the series at the Oracle Park on Wednesday. The Giants have won the first 2 games to secure the series. 

Colorado Rockies

The Rockies get here with a 16-13 record and have lost 3 straight games. The team is averaging 4.4 runs while allowing 5 runs per game. CJ Cron leads the team with 9 home runs and 24 RBI while Jose Iglesias is batting for a .333 AVG.

Senzatela (2-2) allowed five runs and seven hits in 3 2/3 innings in the 2nd game of the series.

Probable Pitcher: 

Chad Kuhl (3-0, 1.82 ERA) will start for the Rockies in the 3rd game of the series. Kuhl settled for a no-decision during Friday's 4-1 loss to Arizona, allowing one run on three hits and two walks with five strikeouts in six innings.

San Francisco Giants

The Giants get here with a 17-12 record and have won 4 games in a row. The offense is on fire and is averaging 4.93 runs per game while allowing 3.86 runs. Wilmer Flores leads the team with 19 RBI and batting for an average of .270. Joc Pederson has 6 home runs.

Logan Webb leads the pitching staff with 4 wins, 27 strikeouts and a 3.82 ERA.

Probable Pitcher:

Alex Cobb (1-1, 4.80 ERA) will be on the mound for the Giants in the 3rd game of the series. Cobb didn't factor into the decision during Friday's 3-2 loss to St. Louis, allowing two runs on three hits and one walk with eight strikeouts in five innings.

BETTING TRENDS

Colorado are 0-9 SU in their last 9 games against San Francisco.

Colorado are 1-8 SU in their last 9 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of San Francisco's last 11 games.

San Francisco are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

Prediction

The Rockies have lost 3 games in a row and 8 of their last 9 games on the road but they have lost only 1 game with Chad Khul on the mound this season. The Giants offense is on fire right now and can't go against them even with Khul on the other side but I do think that the Rockies can keep it close enough to cover the spread. San Francisco are just 5-11 ATS at home.

PICK: Rockies +1.5 (-120)
