ASA top play on 10* OVER 8 Colorado Rockies @ San Francisco Giants, 4:35 PM ET - The weather will be cool at Oracle Park in San Francisco by the bay but the wind is expected to be blowing out to center field at least 20 mph in this one. Certainly this could help lift a few balls out of the yard if the pitchers make some mistakes and certainly we could see that in this one. As for the starters here, Austin Gomber had a very rough season opener and he has made only 5 starts at the MLB level since the end of the 2018 season. The Rockies southpaw is still a bit unproven as a starter and faces a big challenge here with a road start against a team making its home opener. Gomber walked 7 in just 3 and 1 / 3 innings in his season opening start. The Giants have not been hitting the ball well for average early this season but do have 11 homers in 6 games and Gomber is having trouble with his location and now wanting to avoid walking too many. That said, you know what happens with mistake pitches over the plate and San Francisco will make him pay. The Giants start Johnny Cueto here. The veteran right-hander had a rough spring with a 9.82 ERA in his 3 starts. This seemed to carry into his shaky season opener as well as he was not overly impressive against the Mariners. A number of Rockies hitters have had good success against Cueto and you might think that is only due to seeing him at Coors Field. But he just faced Colorado here at Oracle Park last September and got rocked for 7 earned runs in 4 and 1 / 3 innings. The total set on this game by oddsmakers has been bouncing around but after opening at 8.5 went as high as a 9 and then settled in at a 8. We love the value here after the line move in particular and will not hesitate to get involved here. Look for both teams to hit the ball well on Friday in the series opener of this 3-game set.
