Mike Lundin‘s Cubs vs. Rockies Free Pick
Start Time: May 8, 2017, 8:40 PM
The Chicago Cubs fell 5-4 to the New York Yankees in 18 innings Sunday night. Their bullpen is taxed after using seven relievers last night (four of them threw at least 30 pitches) and playing at Coors Field here the very next night could prove extremely tough for the Cubs. I like the Colorado Rockies as a home underdog here.
The Cubs’ Jake Arrieta (4-1, 4.63 ERA) has posted a 4.50 ERA in three career starts against the Rockies and he’s conceded a total of 13 runs (12 earned) on 24 hits through 16 1/3 innings in his last three starts. The Rockies hand hte ball to Antonio Senzatela (4-1, 2.84 ERA). The 22 year old is 2-1 with a 3.15 in three starts at Coors Field and the Rockies have won five of his six starts overall this season.
The Cubs are just 7-16 in the last 23 meetings in Colorado. The Rockies have won four of their last five, six of their last nine and they’re top of the NL West with a 20-12 record for the season.
