Ultimately Colorado probably isn’t going to challenge for a playoff spot but they have been better than expected this season and are fun with their offense.
This weekend they have a chance to put some distance between them and Arizona, who has been playing better in June, and is trying to get into the race.
Arizona returns to familiar confines after a short trip north of the border, splitting with Toronto.
The offense has not been as good as expected this season.
The good news is that Paul Goldschmidt is starting to heat up. Right now he has the same number of homers and RBIs as Jake Lamb. That is nice for Lamb but Goldie needs to pull away.
Archie Bradley’s stuff is good but he still gets hit hard. Even though he was very sharp in his last outing at Philly in the two before that he gave up 5 homers combined.
His propensity for getting burned by the home run makes me nervous recommending him coming into Coors Field.
He pitched at Coors in May and the Diamondbacks won – he kept it in the yard and only gave up 4ER over six. If he does that again they can win.
The Rox split a short two gamer in the Bronx and now it is back to regular business this weekend against Arizona. A strong series would get them to .500 and then who knows where they can climb too.
I love the offense. Nolan Arenado might be the most underrated player in MLB. They don’t talk about him the way they do some other young superstars and they should.
Colorado is always looking for pitching. This will be Tyler Anderson’s third start in the Majors and so far so good with an ERA of 2.25 and a WHIP under 1.
Arizona will be the best offense he has faced so this will be a tougher test.
The bullpen for Colorado is still a work in progress.
Late in games they have some big arms but Jake McGee has not been automatic.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
Arizona is certainly well equipped to go to Coors and win a slug fest. Bradley might be able to subdue a strong lineup for a second time this season but that is not something I would want to bet on.
I think if you like AZ you are better to go with the over where there is less risk.
Anderson is a bit of an unknown. Even though this is a division game he has not faced Arizona before and I always like to take advantage of that.
Especially in an environment like this where they can still win even if he is lit up.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Colorado ML
I am not saying Anderson is the second coming but I think this is a spot you can get behind Colorado. They are over .500 in these division games and delivering a small positive value.
