Arizona at Colorado

4 units on Colorado -1.5 runs +155 (runline) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: LOSS
The last time these two clubs met they were fighting for a chance to take on Boston in the World Series. The Rockies won that privilege then went on to get swept by the BoSox. Mark Redman makes his first start of the year for the Rockies in what is their home opener. He needs better run support than what the Rockies offense has been able to provide thus far. In their opening series against St. Louis, the Rox scored just five total runs. They are coming off a shutout loss and we like them a lot here as a result. The change of scenery, home crowd, and need to avoid a third straight loss will juice out a top effort in this one from Colorado. Arizona hasn't had much offense either this season so it may not take a whole lot of improvement from Colorado here. The Rocks are 48-39 to the run line the past two seasons at home and 50-27 over division opponents. That includes a 17-8 mark against the run line at home after three-straight road games. Also over that span they are 22-11 against the run line after two straight losses. Colorado by 2+ here.
