NL West June Best of the Best Total - Rickenbach MLB Rotation #959 Monday 10* Top Play OVER the total in Colorado Rockies vs San Diego Padres @ 8:40 ET - Having the over in the Rockies game yesterday at Cincinnati, I painfully watched as Colorado went an incredible 0 for 9 with runners in scoring position and left a dozen men on base in the game! Now that the Rockies are back home, I look for a lot more clutch hitting today to make up for yesterday's ugly effort at the plate. Temperatures will be near 100 degrees for a high today in Denver and it will be a hitter-friendly night at a hitter-friendly ballpark. Look for both lineups to take advantage. This is a bit of a contrarian play from the standpoint that Dinelson Lamet and Austin Gomber have had some success in recent meetings against the teams they are facing today but contrarian should prove to be the way to go here. Gomber will be facing the Padres for a 3rd time in the span of 5 weeks and this tends to favor the hitters. Also, San Diego enters this game off a huge win at New York against the Mets yesterday in which they got 3 big homers from their key players and will carry confidence and momentum into Coors Field as a result. The issue for the Padres will be that Lamet has been unable to work deep into starts and the Rockies just faced him here last month. Lamet is getting hit at a .270 clip in road starts and a .271 clip in evening games this season and faces a major test on a hot night at hitter-friendly Coors Field. Given Gomber's recent success on the mound I am not surprised this total dropped from an 11.5 to a 10.5 and it could move even more but it should prove to be fruitful to be a contrarian on this one based on the above. The Rockies .277 batting average at home leads the majors and the Padres bats are feeling it after yesterday's big win over the Mets. 10* OVER the total in Colorado

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.
