Colorado Rockies vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
I look for the Rockies to play well in this one. I have a very hard time backing the Snakes, so I am going to fade them here.
Colorado is the better team and I feel they will show that in this one. They should be able to beat a terrible Arizona team.
I look for Senzatela to keep up his good pitching and for the Rockies to do enough against Gallen to get a win.
I like Colorado as a road dog here.
