Latest Odds : SF -110 Total 10
The San Francisco Giants are on the road this week in order to take on the home town Colorado Rockies at the hitter friendly Coors Park. San Francisco has struggled right out of the gate this year to get anything going while Colorado is beginning to make waves as a potential playoff team. This night game will feature two explosive offenses in a hitter friendly park while a pair of solid pitchers take the mound.
San Francisco will be trotting out their ace, Johnny Cueto (3 - 0, 3.79 ERA). Cueto has had an explosive start to his season, racking up three straight wins behind borderline dominant stuff. Cueto gets a rough match up against one of the most stacked offenses in the league. San Francisco is no slouch of their own on offense with Buster Posey and Brandon Crawford anchoring the middle of the line up.
Colorado will be sending out their staff ace for this game, Tyler Chatwood (1 - 2, 3.54 ERA). Chatwood is coming off of a magical start against the Giants, going 9IP. Chatwood will be backed off my a majorly potent Colorado offense which features Nolan Arenado and Carlos Gonzalez. Colorado is one of the elite offensive teams in the MLB but we aren't sure they'll get much going against Cueto.
