Colorado Rockies (9-17) are looking to grab a win in this series against the Diamondbacks (14-12) after dropping their last two games. Rockies are sending Starting LHP Austin Gomber (1-3) with a 6.65 ERA to the mound. D’backs will send Starting RHP Zac Gallen (1-0) with a 2.16 ERA to the mound.
Everyone outside of two players in the starting batting order for the Rockies have faced Gallen before. None have hit a Home Run or notched an RBI against Gallen. Only David Peralta of the Diamondbacks starting batting order has faced Gomber before and was unsuccessful.
The weather is a hot 97 degrees Fahrenheit in Phoenix, Arizona and by the time the first-pitch at Chase Field the temperature will drop along with the already currently low 10% humidity. There will be a 14 MPH wind to the right. A higher humidity would mean the ball would travel farther when hit.
This game environment and pitching match-up is leading me to tonight’s bet. Diamondbacks are 42.6% at cashing the UNDER. However, the Colorado Rockies cash the UNDER 56.0% of the time this season.
Preston’s Best Bet: UNDER 8.5 Total Runs (-102)
