Pick
1.5 COL (-138) @ pinnacle

I'm playing COLORADO on the run-line (+1.5 runs) I expect the Rockies to win this one outright. However, if they're going to give me an extra +1.5 runs at this reasonable a price - given the current form of Lynn - I'm happy to grab them. Lynn started to come back to earth a little last time out; through five innings, he allowed two earned runs while giving up four hits (1 HR) and walking three batters. Lynn lost 8-4 the last time that he started at Colorado. Though he didn't go deep, Castellani was excellent (0 hits!) in his debut as he and the Colorado relievers combined for a 1-hitter. He faced 12 batters and he retired them all. Texas relievers have an ugly 8.84 ERA and 1.96 combined WHIP on the road. Rockies earn AT LEAST the "run-line cover."

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
