Gray Set to Return to the Bump for First Time Since Mid-April

The Colorado Rockies have been raising eyebrows all season long and will get some reinforcements in time for Friday’s contest with the Arizona Diamondbacks in the form of ace pitcher Jon Gray. Sportsbooks opened the D-backs as -142 home favorites with a total of 9.

Shark Bites

  • The total has gone UNDER in six of the Rockies' last eight games on the road.
  • The Rockies are 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in their last five games with one day off between games.
