The Colorado Rockies and the San Francisco Giants will meet again to play a 3-game series at the Coors Field. The Rockies lost their last series against the Royals while the Giants lost vs the Cardinals.

San Francisco Giants

The Giants get here with a 20-14 record and have won 6 of their last 8 games. The team is averaging 4.94 runs per game while allowing 3.66 runs. Wilmer Flores leads the team with 19 RBI and batting for an average of .267. Joc Pederson has 7 home runs.

Logan Webb leads the team with a 3.48 ERA and 28 strikeouts, recording 5 wins for the Giants. 

Probable Pitcher:

Alex Wood (3-2, 3.60 ERA) will be on the mound for the Giants in the 1st game of the series. Wood earned the win during Tuesday's 9-2 victory over Colorado, allowing one unearned run on seven hits and two walks with four strikeouts in 5.1 innings. He got the win and threw 5 scoreless innings against the Rockies earlier this season.

Colorado Rockies

The Rockies get here with a 17-17 record and have lost 6 of their last 7 games. The team is averaging 4.64 runs while allowing 5.45 runs per game. CJ Cron leads the team with 9 home runs and 25 RBI while Jose Iglesias is batting for a .313 AVG.

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

Probable Pitcher: 

Antonio Senzatela (2-2, 4.88 ERA) will start for the Rockies in the 1st game of the series. Senzatela was handed the loss during Tuesday's 9-2 defeat at the hands of the Giants, allowing five runs on seven hits and two walks with one strikeout in 3.2 innings. He got pounded in his last start against the Giants allowing 5 runs in just 3.1 innings.

BETTING TRENDS

San Francisco are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games.

San Francisco are 10-0 SU in their last 10 games against Colorado.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Colorado's last 7 games at home.

Colorado are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against San Francisco.

Prediction

The Giants have dominated the Rockies beating them in 10 straight games and Alex Wood held them to zero runs in his last meeting while Senzatela got pounded by the Giants. The Rockies are allowing more than 5 runs per game so the Giants should't have any problems to win this game. Take the Giants.

PICK: Giants -1.5 (-105)
