Posted by D.Zamzack on Friday,April 14, 2017 3:21, EDT in

The Colorado Rockies will look to take another game off of the NL West division rival San Francisco Giants when they meet in Game 3 of their series on Saturday. The Rockies took the series opener 3-1 on Thursday night and have won five of eight games heading into Friday night.

 

 

On the other hand, the Giants, who still haven’t won a game with Madison Bumgarner  as staring pitcher, claimed three of their last five games played, including two matches against the Arizona Diamondbacks. While the MLB betting lines for this game have not been released yet, the Giants are likely to get favored by at least 1 run. Now, let’s check the game info and find out where the value in this matchup lies.

Why Bet The Colorado Rockies Odds

Right-hander Tyler Chatwood was locked in a pitching duel against the Padres at Coors Field on Monday night, but gave up two sixth-inning homers before leaving with a loss after 5.1 innings to fall to 0-2 on the season. The Rockies did bounce back the next day to beat the Padres 3-2, but ell on Thursday night 6-0 to San Diego in their series finale.

Why Bet The San Francisco Giants Odds

Veteran southpaw starter Matt Moore has gone 5-0 with a stellar 1.59 ERA in his last five regular season starts at AT&T Park dating back to last season. Prior to their loss to the Rockies on Thursday night, the Giants had won three of four while taking two of three against Arizona in their previous series.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

With the Giants playing at home and trotting out a starting pitcher in Matt Moore that has dominated the Rockies, I wouldn’t think twice about backing the Giants to win and cover the Run Line. The Rockies are 3-7 in Tyler Chatwood’s last 10 starts, 2-5 in his last 7 Saturday starts and an uninspiring 0-4 in Chatwood’s last 4 starts with 4 days of rest.

Conversely, the Giants are 5-2 in their last 7 home games vs. a right-handed starter, 7-3 in their last 10 home games and a near-perfect 5-1 in Matt Moore’s last 6 home starts. Frisco wins by three people!

My final score prediction is San Francisco 6 Colorado 3
