The Rockies have won two in a row heading into Saturday night’s contest with Cincinnati but they are still listed as huge underdogs for Sunday’s series finale. Colorado has been swinging the bat like they are at Coors Field, scoring an 8-7 win at Washington on Thursday and a 12-2 victory over the Reds in the series opener Friday. Colorado does wrap up a 10-game road swing on Sunday though and go home to face the Dodgers on Monday.
Sunday’s O/U is set pretty high at 10 and Colorado starter Peter Lambert will give up some runs. Lambert has allowed at least 3ER in 5 of his last 6 starts including an 8, a 5, and a 4 ER allowed outing over that span. All three of those games were at hitter friendly Coors Field however and Lambert’s road ERA of 3.63 is much more desirable than his 7.61 number at home.
The Reds looked bad over a 4-game losing streak in mid-July but they’ve bounced back in a mediocre manner going 3-3 since heading into Saturday night’s tilt with the Rockies. The Reds took a huge 2-12 beating on Friday and as -141 favorites to boot. Cincinnati did look good taking 2 of 3 in Milwaukee in the series prior but they’re quickly proving to have a home field disadvantage at just 25-25 at Great American Ballpark on the season.
The Reds are huge favorites as of late Saturday night odds but there’s some discrepancy about who gets the nod for Cincinnati. Sonny Gray is a possible go and the reason why the Reds are listed at -163 as he’s allowed 2ER or less in five straight starts. It’s also possible that Alex Wood makes his season debut on Sunday after spending the entire year on the IL with a lower back injury. Expect the line to move in Colorado’s favor if it is Wood on the bump.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
Even if the Rockies are in a possible trap spot from oddsmakers in this one there’s simply no reason to lay the -148 on a slumping Reds squad. SF has won 8 of 10, and are worth the “risk” at +137 considering they’ve won 5 straight vs. the Reds and are playing great ball overall right now.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Rockies ML
Lambert has looked bad for Colorado – but only when pitching in Colorado. The Rockies will have great value once it’s officially confirmed that Alex Wood is the starter for the Reds. The Rockies saw Wood a ton of times with him pitching for the Dodgers the last few years and this is not a lineup you want to face in your season debut.
