BETTING TRENDS

Colorado Rockies are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games on the road.

Colorado Rockies are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against NY Mets.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of NY Mets' last 8 games against Colorado.

NY Mets are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Rockies have played awful on the road this season with a 18-39 record and they'll now face one of the best teams in the National League with their best pitcher on the mound. Jacob deGrom is coming from his worst start of the season so far and by telling worst I mean allowing 3 runs against the Braves. He has dominated the Rockies in his career with a 1.17 ERA against them. The Rockies will send Ryan Feltner to the mound who has struggled this season and the Rockies have lost in 8 of his 11 starts. Expect a total domination from DeGrom and the Mets to win this one easy.

PICK: Mets -1.5 (-170)
