Money Line: -128 Colorado

Result: Win

10* Colorado (3:10 ET): The Giants won yday and of course it was by just a run (6-5). Since July 18th, all but one of the team's nine victories have come by that exact margin. At least they didn't win in extra innings Saturday, a scenario which has seen them go an extraordinarily fortunate 7-0 since the Break. If it sounds like I'm being bitter, yes I did have the Rockies last night, but it goes beyond that. San Francisco is a total fraud as they are a game over .500 this year despite being outscored by 51 runs. I'll gladly fade them again Sunday just as I have four of the last five days (won the first three times).

It's very surprising to see that Colorado has scored just five runs in each of the first two games of this series. After all, they lead all of MLB in runs per game at home (as per usual) w/ 6.5. They dug an early hole last night, falling behind 4-0 in the first inning, but were able to climb out and eventually take a 5-4 lead going into eighth. That's when the Giants' Buster Posey struck w/ a pinch-hit, 2-run double to give his team the lead and eventual win. The Giants have won 5 of their last 6 in Coors Field, but again I remain highly skeptical as going by YTD run differential, they are the biggest overachievers when it comes to win expectancy in the entire National League.

The Giants won't have Madison Bumgarner on the bump today. Rather, it will be Tyler Beede, who has a 5.57 ERA and 1.571 WHIP on the road this season. Coors Field is obviously the toughest place to pitch in all of baseball (high altitude) and this will be Beede's first time ever starting a game here. The Rockies go w/ Kyle Freeland, who has struggled this year after a tremendous 2018. But he's always pitched well against the Giants w/ a 3.09 ERA in 10 starts. I've made my feelings about San Francisco well-known and am not about to come off that position. 10* Colorado
