This could be a fun and high scoring series. Lots of bats on both sides and pitching that has been up and down throughout the season.
The Rockies are 6-2 on the road heading into Monday action. They are not usually that strong on the road so that bodes well for some long term success.
Also bonding well is that the offense, which was slow starting, is pretty much where we thought they would be at the top of the league rankings. Charlie Blackmon has been hard to get out this season and he is probably not even their best hitter really.
Colorado is third in the Majors in quality starts. Antonio Senzatela has been a contributor there, leading the team in wins with three. He does not dominate but they don’t need him to. Jairo Dias has been moved to the closer role with some success. The bullpen is the weak link of this team though.
A four-game winning streak including a sweep of Seattle over the weekend has nudged the Astros over .500. They can’t seem to catch a break though as Michael Brantley got hurt. He has been one of their most consistent hitters early.
Alex Bregman has been heating up which is a really good sign but what is up with Jose Altuve and George Springer, both are hitting under .200. As a reminder, Altuve has never hit below .276 in a season, so better times have to be ahead right?
Zach Greinke is thrust into ace status with Justin Verlander out. He is holding down that spot just fine, though less dominantly. Houston has a very nice set of starters but like Colorado, the bullpen is the weakness of the team. Injuries have really hurt them there.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
There is going to be some really good value on both sides. Houston is hot right now and Greinke is a nice play under almost any conditions really. However, there is even more value with the visiting Rox. I think Senzatela can quell a lineup that has not totally found its stride yet
