Rockies Looking to Return to Stellar Form at Coors Field

The Colorado Rockies saw their 10-game home winning streak come to an end with a 10-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday, but the Rox will be looking to start a new streak at Coors Field against the San Diego Padres tonight.

Padres vs Rockies Game Center

Standout Stats

  • Sportsbooks opened the Rockies as -150 home favorites with a total of 11.5.
  • The status of Rockies star third baseman Nolan Arenado will be determined today. Arenado was plunked on his left forearm by Cole Hamels during yesterday’s contest.
  • Matt Strahm is expected to start for the Padres. Strahm (2-5, 4.03 ERA) is returning from a short stay on the injured list with a rib injury. The 27-year-old was torched for a season-worst seven runs as well as seven hits (two homers) in a loss to the Miami Marlins on June 2.
  • Jon Gray will counter for the Rockies. Gray (5-5, 4.27) has fared well at Coors Field this season by going 2-1 with a 3.00 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 30 innings across five starts.
  • San Diego has lost four straight games and eight of its past 11 after losing 4-2 to the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday.
  • Padres third baseman Manny Machado is mired in a 5-for-43 drought over his last 12 games and is batting .240 on the season.

My Best Bet for Padres-Rockies

Rockies moneyline

It’s going to cost you to bet the Rockies tonight at -150, but the chalk is worth it in my opinion. The Padres are playing poor baseball right now and have become a tough team to trust as a result. I wouldn’t fret about Colorado’s lopsided defeat yesterday, so I’m backing the Rockies to return to their stellar form in Denver in this one.
