Pick
Over 10.5 (-120) @ bet365
I don’t know what is wrong with Luis Castillo this year, but if there was ever a place for his problems to get even worse, it’s Coors Field. This guy has been a perennial ace for the last 3-4 years, and this year he’s running a 6.42 ERA that jumps up to 7.71 on the road. In the 1st inning alone in his 7 starts, he has allowed 12 runs on 15 hits! To add to all of that, he has an 0-2 record with an 8.44 ERA in his career against the Rockies. Coors Field can be a pain in the ass to play at, and I think it will be for Castillo today, especially with Colorado scoring so many more runs at home this year than on the road.
 
-Chi Chi Gonzalez will go for the Rockies too. He has a 5.97 ERA this year, but I think his situation is going to be a tough one more than anything. His last 3 starts have come on the road, and 4 of his last 5 have been away from Colorado. His only two home starts prior to this stretch of road games were both against the Dodgers, so he hasn’t had a chance yet to really settle in to his home field and get through some innings. I think both starting pitchers will be in for it today, and I think these offenses can really hold their own — we’ve seen what Cincinnati can do at the plate — so I think we’ll have a 7-6 ball-game here.

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.
