Preview

The Colorado Rockies will host the New York Mets to play a 3-game series at the Coors Field. The Mets won their last series against the Cardinals while the Rockies lost vs Giants.

New York Mets

The Mets get here with a 26-14 record and have won 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.60 runs per game and allowing 3.5 runs. Jeff McNeil is batting for .313 AVG while Pete Alonso leads with 10 home runs and 36 RBI.

Max Scherzer leads the team with a 2.54 ERA, 59 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded for the Mets.

Probable Pitcher:

Carlos Carrasco (3-1, 3.73 ERA) will be on the mound for the Mets in the 1st game of the series. Carrasco allowed four runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out two in 4.1 innings in Sunday's loss to the Mariners. He didn't factor into the decision.

Colorado Rockies

The Rockies get here with a 18-19 record and have lost 8 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 4.81 runs while allowing 5.62 runs per game. CJ Cron leads the team with 10 home runs, 30 RBI and batting for a .319 AVG.

Chad Khul leads the pitching staff with a 2.88 ERA, 30 strikeouts and 3 wins for the Rockies.

Probable Pitcher: 

German Marquez (1-3, 6.16 ERA) will start for the Rockies in the 1st game of the series. Marquez earned the win over Kansas City on Saturday, completing six innings and allowing three runs on three hits and one walk while striking out six. In his last 3 starts against the Mets he has a 3.31 ERA and 16 strikeouts across 19 innings pitched.

BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone OVER in 4 of NY Mets' last 6 games.

NY Mets are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of Colorado's last 9 games.

Colorado are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games.

Prediction

The Mets offense is hot and have scored 18 runs in their last 2 games and it all points to that will continue whe they play at the Coors Field. The Rockies have been profitable at home so far this season and will face Carlos Carrasco who's coming from allow 4 runs in 4 innings. Colorado will have Kris Bryant back in the lineup so that's good news for them. I expect both offenses to hit the ball hard on this game so I'll take the over.

PICK: Over 10 (-110)
