Marquez Has Been A Good Luck Charm For Rockies

German Marquez isn’t exactly a name that most baseball bettors are going to be throwing around in their capping. However, the 22-year-old has steered the Rockies to seven consecutive wins at Coors Field. Will Marquez and the Rockies be able to bounce back against the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday?

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 6 of the Brewers’ last 8 games against the Rockies.
  • The Brewers are 10-4 SU in their last 14 games when opening a series.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 7 of the Rockies’ last 10 games.

The Brew Crew will send the steady Matt Garza to the mound in this one. Garza has allowed three or fewer earned runs in seven of his last eight starts but has only once pitched into the sixth inning in that span. The 11-year veteran has had a lot of control issues with 18 strikeouts and 17 walks in his past six outings.

These two teams are trending in different directions entering this three-game series. The Rockies were once the talk of baseball but have gone just 3-7 in their past 10 while scoring three or fewer runs eight times. The Brewers head to Colorado riding a four-game winning streak that has seen them plate almost six runs per contest.
