Cincinnati at Colorado

3 units on Colorado -190 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Ubaldo Jimenez looks to become the first NL pitcher to reach 18 wins. The way his team is playing, he should get there today. He's gone 0-4 in his last five starts, but it's not due to bad pitching. He's posted a 3.00 ERA over that span so he has remained consistent. The Rockies have won 15 of their last 21 games including seven of ten as they make another unlikely push for the playoffs. I expect some run support for Jimenez here as the Rockies have averaged 5.6 runs per game over their 21-game run, scoring 7+ in ten of those games. Colorado has beaten Cincinnati 13 of 16 times they have met over the past three seasons (including 6-1 here at home). While they struggle to score on the road, this team averages nearly 6 runs per game here in Coors Field. As a home favorite of -150 or more, the Rockies are 18-2 with Jimenez toeing the rubber. Colorado here.
