Pick
COL (-122) @ pinnacle

The set-up: Colorado prevailed 8-4 last night and I think it'll post a similar victory on Saturday as well. The visitors hand the ball to Jaime Barria (0-0, 3.38 ERA) who was 4-10 with a 6.42 ERA last year, splitting time between the majors and minors. I think the sample size is too small for Barria in 2020 and that regression is imminent.

The pick: The Rockies hand the ball to southpaw Kyle Freeland (2-1, 3.60) who enters off a gem vs. the hard-hitting Padres on MOnday, allowing three hits and striking out six over six scoreless in what turned out to be an unfortunate no-decision. Over 50 innings Freeland has a very respectable 1.36 WHIP and 34:14 K:BB. I think Freeland should easily beat his counterpart here and that's the difference for me. Lay the very reasonable price on the home side in this one.

This is a 10* COACH'S CORNER on the Colorado Rockies.

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.
