Rockies Have Been Closing Out Series at an Impressive Clip

Coors Field did Coors Field things last night with the D-backs and Rockies combining for 21 runs in a Snakes’ win and it will host the NL West rivals’ series finale this afternoon. Looking to salvage a 2-1 win in the series, the Rockies will call upon rookie Antonio Senzatela (9-2, 4.10 ERA) to pitch against Zack Godley (2-1, 2.34 ERA).  

SHARK BITES
  • The Rockies are 6-1 SU and on the runline in their last 7 games when closing out a series.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of the Diamondbacks' last 6 games against the Rockies.
  • Antonio Senzatela is 7-1 with an ERA of 3.68 at Coors Field.

Although Godley has never started in Denver, he is familiar with its volatility and he owns a 10.13 ERA at Coors Field in two relief appearances there. Those 2.2 innings pitched represent an extremely small sample size but the mental hurdle that is pitching at elevation should not be discounted.

That said, Godley’s counterpart has not been fazed by the Rocky Mountain air at all through his eight career starts in Colorado and is likely the reason why the Rox opened as -140 moneyline faves for Thursday’s contest. Senzatela has, however, been much worse under the sun than under the lights and he could be in trouble against a Diamondbacks lineup that’s been tearing the leather off the baseball.

Tonight’s total opened at a lofty 12.5 and with the Rockies posting a 1-4 OVER/UNDER record this season when their games have closed with a total of 12 or higher, you may want to consider a bet on the UNDER.
