*1 unit* Brewers vs Reds -117
*1 unit* Orioles vs Rays -1.5 (-140)
*1 unit* Astros vs Rockies (Under 7.5)(F5)- Yes, this is a first 5 line. The scores at Coors lately have been so high as of late. Coors Field is number 1 on the park factor list, which basically states the most runs are scored at Coors. Tonight, you have two pitchers going up against lineups that haven’t seen the respective pitchers much/or at all before. German Marquez and Jose Urquidy face off tonight in Denver, which will be a warm summer night. Urquify is coming off Tommy John surgery last year and has been dominate in the minors in the last month.
Making a season debut in Coors is not easy but this kid has good stuff. He grew up in Mexico and pitched a lot in Mexico City, which is high altitude just like Denver. There is a big mental factor that comes into play when pitching at a hitters park, and I don’t think this will get to him. Marquez has struggled in the first inning throughout his career, and if he can just sneak out of the first inning, this under most likely will land under. Marquez has a 4.29/3.74/1.21 split on the year. With this f5 total at 7.5, I have to fire this up. Believe it or not, I also like the full game over at 13. Seems counterintuitive. but the Rockies pen has been atrocious. I have this being a 4-2 game after 5 and then the Rockies pulling this one out 8-7.
