ML: Colorado-135, Miami+122
RL: Colorado+120, Miami-140
O/U: O7.5+102, U7.5-122
Today’s game pits the Colorado Rockies against the Miami Marlins in the third game of a four-game set. The matchup features lefty Tyler Anderson of the Rockies going up against righty Pablo Lopez of the Marlins.
Anderson is coming off of the best year of his career with 32 starts, 176 innings pitched and 164 strikeouts.
Lopez is coming off of a spring training in which he had an ERA below 1.00 and walked only one batter in 20 innings.
In the previous two games of the series, the Rockies are outscoring the Marlins 12-4 and the Marlins have only totaled six hits.
David Dahl has been the surprise early-season leader on offense for the Rockies. Dahl is 4-8 with two doubles, two RBI’s and two runs scored.
The Rockies lineup features more talent than the Marlins and should be able to get to the young Lopez today. So far in the early part of the season, the Rockies have shown great discipline at the plate with the fourth least strikeouts in the league and the 11th most walks to go along with the third most hits.
Expect the Rockies to get to 3-0, but in a low scoring affair. The Marlins are having a hard time scoring so far this season and may not be able to get on the scoreboard at all today.
- Anderson had three starts last season where he pitches at least 7 ⅔ or more shutout innings.
- The total has gone UNDER in 4 of the last 6 Colorado games.
- The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the last 16 meetings where the Rockies played the Marlins on the road.
- The total has gone UNDER in 5 of the last 7 Miami home games.
Colorado 3 - Miami 1
Best pick is Under 7.5
