Rockies vs Padres Prediction

There are a couple of ways you could look to bet on this game, but we like the over/under line, with the over currently sitting at 7 runs. Our predicted score is 6-5 in favor of the Padres, giving us some wiggle room with the over/under line.

Offensively, we have the Padres finishing with nine hits compared to the Rockies with nine. However, the Rockies are projected to finish with 10 strikeouts, while the Padres are predicted to finish with six.

Another option would be to look at the money line, but with the Padres at -284, we don’t see a ton of value there. If you’re looking for a long-shot bet, the Rockies are at +233 to win.
