Money Line: -134 Chi Cubs
8* Chi Cubs (3:10 ET): The Cubs' sweep of the Cardinals this past weekend is rapidly becoming a distant memory as they are the ones now facing the same fate here in Colorado. They lost 6-5 on Monday, then 10-3 last night. That latter result was beneficial to me as I had the Over. The Rockies really poured it on late, most notably in a five-run sixth. But let's not forget what I talked about yday: the Cubs happen to be the NL's second highest scoring road team (now at 5.6 runs per game). I have them avoiding the sweep today behind Cole Hamels.
When these teams met last week at Wrigley Field in Chicago, the Rockies were fortunate enough to avoid Hamels. He's pitched very well of late, including 15 straight innings w/o allowing a single earned run (allowed one unearned). Both starts that make up that stretch came against St. Louis. The last one saw him go eight innings and not only did he not give up any runs, he allowed only three hits and struck out 10. Hamels has a 3.79 ERA in six previous starts here at Coors Field, so he won't be intimidated by the thin air.
The Rockies obviously score a lot of runs at home (6.4 rpg), but they give up their fair share (6.1) as well. Anthony Senzatela is looking to make it four consecutive quality starts, but I do NOT see that happening here. He has a 5.21 ERA at Coors in five starts this year. Note the price range for this matchup as Colorado is 0-3 in 2019 when priced between +125 and +175 at home. The Cubs are a perfect 6-0 the L6 times Hamels has been coming off a quality start in his last outing. 8* Chi Cubs
