San Francisco Giants vs Colorado Rockies (-120, 11.5)
Rockies pulled one out last night against the Giants, winning 5-4. David Dahl suffered a nasty injury, but turns out it is just a sprain. Tonight, we have a total of 11.5, which is low considering the totals of 12-14 we have been seeing the last several games at Coors. This total makes sense with Jon Gray and Madison Bumgarner pitching tonight.

MadBum has been impressive this season with a 3.74/3.66/1.15 split. The Giants didn’t send him packing at the trade deadline, so it shows that the Giants believe they can make a Wild Card push. Rockies are only batting a .245 all-time on 254 PA. This is a large sample size, and the way he has pitched lately, and the Rockies being without one of their top bats in David Dahl, this could be troublesome.
Jon Gray for the Rockies has been just as impressive, with a 3.88/4.13/1.36. He is a guy that I was not betting on in the first half of the season because of his inconsistency, but he has been solid this season. I am going to bet on the F5 under at 6 here. Dahl is out of the lineup, both pitchers are pitching well and this line is essentially this high because of Coors. Bumgarner has a 4.33 ERA in 16 career Coors starts, which is impressive. Go with the F5 under here.
Pick- Rockies/Giants (under 6)
