(MLB) Arizona vs. Colorado, 04/06/2021 8:40 PM, Score: 10 - 8
Total: 10.50 | -115.00 Under
Result: Loss
9* Under D’backs/Rockies (8:40 ET): This is the series opener. Betting the Under at Coors Field is typically not the “safest play,” but it’s early in the season and the respective hitters of both these teams are not exactly hitting the cover off the ball. Arizona’s first series of the year saw them go 1-3 vs. San Diego as they avoided a sweep with a 3-1 on Sunday. Colorado is also 1-3, but their win came on Opening Day. Even facing the Dodgers here at Coors, the last two games stayed Under the total.

Arizona lost 8-7 on Opening Day and since then has done little scoring. They have just five runs the last three games, all of which stayed Under. The D’backs split 10 games with the Rockies last year, but did take three of the three here in Denver. They scored 32 runs in that series (Over was 3-0), but don’t look for anything of the sort here as Rockies starter German Marquez only gave up one run to the Dodgers in his first start (6 IP). There were control issues for Marquez, but that feels like an aberration.

Luke Weaver will make his first 2021 start today for the Diamondbacks. He did not have a good 2020, so Coors Field may not seem like an ideal place for a turnaround. But the Rockies have managed only 11 hits their last two games combined. If four games vs. the Dodgers produced an average of “only” 11.7 rpg, then it stands to reason we should expect fewer here. The Under is 8-3-2 the L13 games played at Coors Field. 9* Under D’backs/Rockies
