Every year it seems as if the Colorado Rockies get off to a scorching start in April and eventually fade away as the season progresses.
I don’t know if they’ll get off to that hot start, but I do like them on opening day versus the Diamondbacks.
You might not recognize the names for the Rockies, but you will be soon enough as the Rockies just have a system of bringing in young talent and them producing in the batter’s box.
Also, the Rockies have Nolan Arenado and Carlos Gonzalez who should have big games. Don’t be surprised to see them with multiple hits and runs in this one.
One of my bold predictions I’ve been going on about all offseason is that Zack Greinke is going to be the DeMarco Murray of baseball.
Murray was a product of the Cowboys system and great offensive line play. The same could be said about Greinke. He was only as spectacular because of the Dodgers system.
Aside from Greinke’s Cy Young season in 2009, he has been a mediocre pitcher at best before he came to the Dodgers.
Greinke will have a solid year, he’ll have a record of about .500 and have an ERA around 3.50 – which is fine – but that’s not exactly what the Diamondbacks are paying for, but that’s what they’ll receive.
I bring all this up because I feel that opening day versus the Rockies will be foreshadowing of what is to come. I feel Greinke will get roughed up a bit on opening day which will set the tone for the year.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
A lot of runs will be scored in this game, so I like the over. The odds aren’t available yet, but I would imagine that the D-Backs are sizable favorites given that Greinke is starting. I’d look at the Rockies straight up for some nice value.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over 7.5
This should be a fun game to watch as the ball should be flying all over the place. I like the over in this game, a lot of runs will be scored off the starters and the bullpens should give up a couple of runs as well.
If you want a value pick, I’d look at the Rockies as they should be sizeable underdogs in this game.
