MLB EXPERT PICKS - FULL ANALYSIS ATTACHED

COLORADO ROCKIES RUNLINE: 1 UNIT (+120)

The Rockies are 7-2 over their last 9 games (77.7%), and their offense has taken a recent surge. For majority of the beginning of the season, Colorado was sitting 28-30th on our TOFI (Total Offensive Index) rankings, but they are trending in the right direction and have shot up to 13th with a current .284 team batting average. Colorado has recently dominated this head-to-head series with Nationals winning 8 of the last 12 matchups (66.6%). The combination of the Rockies recent offensive surge, with German Marquez starting at home makes us confident enough to support this run line. Marquez has been a monster early this season giving up 2 or less runs in 4 of his 5 starts. He already has two 7+ inning shutout performances and has a highly impressive 30 strikeouts to 8 walk ratio with a 0.97 WHIP (walks-hits per inning pitched). The Rockies have outscored their opponents 5.1 to 2.6 over their last 7 games and we are confident they secure the run line today with their ace on the mound.
