COL (21-37) +110 u10.5 (-110) +1.5 (-145)

Prediction:

For this matchup, the best pick is the over of 10.5 runs. Here's why:

First, Coors Field is known for being a hitter-friendly park due to its high altitude, which often leads to higher-scoring games. This factor alone makes the over a strong consideration.

Secondly, both starting pitchers have vulnerabilities that could lead to a high-scoring affair. Ryan Feltner of the Rockies has struggled with a 5.46 ERA and a WHIP of 1.50, allowing many hits and runs. Andrew Abbott of the Reds, while having better stats, will face challenges pitching in the altitude of Coors Field.

Both teams also have capable offenses. The Rockies' Elias Diaz is hitting .301 and Ryan McMahon has 34 RBIs. The Reds' lineup, with power hitters like Elly De La Cruz and run producers like Spencer Steer, can take advantage of Feltner's struggles.

Additionally, recent games for both teams have shown a tendency towards high scores. The Rockies' last home games include results like 13-7 and 8-6, while the Reds have also been involved in games with scores like 7-5 and 5-4.

Given the high potential for runs due to the pitching matchups, the hitter-friendly environment, and both teams' offensive capabilities, the over of 10.5 runs is the optimal pick for this game.

Pick: Over 10.5 Runs (-110)
