(MLB) San Diego vs. Colorado,
08/18/2021 3:10 PM, Score: 5 - 7
Total: 14.00 | -104.00
I am on the over in the San Diego padres vs Colorado Rockies game on Wednesday. The Padres have been involved in some high scoring games lately, their last 3 games having 10+ runs scored in them. Jake Arrieta (5-11, 6.88 ERA) will be making his Padres debut today, but he has not performed well in his last few games as a Cub. He was credited with 7 losses in a row and the Cubs have lost their last 7 when he started on the mound. He allowed 8 earned runs in his last game and has only had 2 games in his last 8 where he allowed less than 3 earned runs. The Rockies will be starting Chi Chi Gonzalez (3-6, 6.06 ERA) on the mound in this one and he has not had a good year either. The team has only won 2 games of the last 6 he has started in. In his last 4 starts, there were 12+ runs total in each of those games. He has allowed 14 earned runs total in his last 3 starts and has been blown up for more than 6+ runs in a game on multiple occasions this season. Both of these pitchers have struggled this season and, along with the Coors Field effect, I expect there to be plenty of runs in this game to get it over the posted total.
T.M. Prediction: 10-7 Padres.
