UNDERs are the Story When Padres and Rockies Clash

The Colorado Rockies’ season has never truly got off the ground, and time is running out for them to reach the .500 mark. The Rockies begin a seven-game road trip on Thursday as they host the National League West rival San Diego Padres for the opener of a four-game series.

Shark Bites
  • The Rockies are 5-16 SU in their last 21 games on the road against the Padres.
  • The Padres are 9-3 SU in their last 12 games at home after a loss at home.
  • The Rockies are 1-8 SU and ATS in their last nine games against teams with losing records.

Jeff Hoffman and Clayton Richard are the probable starters. Hoffman (0-2, 6.60 ERA) remains in search of his first career victory in his fourth major-league start. The 23-year-old has served up four home runs in his three starts and issued eight walks while striking out only five batters in 15 frames of work.

Richard (1-3, 3.29) re-signed with the Padres after being released by the Chicago Cubs in early August, and it’s paid off so far for San Diego. Richard hasn’t fared well against the Rockies, however, going 2-4 with a 5.23 ERA in 14 games against them.

The UNDER is hot when these teams collide. In the last seven contests between the Rockies and Padres, the UNDER is 5-2.
