Upgrade to View Prediction

The pitching matchup between Frankie Montas and Cal Quantrill, coupled with the recent under trends for both teams, suggests a lower-scoring game. Both offenses have been inconsistent, and with the Reds' solid bullpen and the Rockies' struggles on the road, the under 8.5 runs is the recommended pick.
