Result: Win
#951/952 ASA PLAY ON 8* Over 10 Runs – Colorado Rockies @ Arizona Diamondbacks, Monday at 4:10 PM ET - Expected starters are Ryne Nelson for the Diamondbacks and Karl Kauffmann for the Rockies. We like the over here regardless of the starting pitchers as some overall metrics are pointing to the over here plus the bullpens help the cause. Taking a look at ERA, the Diamondbacks bullpen is ranked 19th out of 30 teams and the Rockies bullpen is ranked 25th so far this season. The big total might seem a little scary but set-ups don't get much better than this. Nelson has struggled at home this season (6.31 ERA in 5 home starts) and also got rocked in his only start versus Colorado this season. The Rockies Kauffmann was hit at a .340 clip this season in his 8 starts in the minors here in 2023! Overall he is 14-24 with a 6.00 ERA in his minor league career. He is 0-2 with a 9.35 ERA in what is now his rookie MLB season and one was at hitter friendly Coors Field but the other ugly outing was on the road.  That said, this road venue is not an easy one either as Chase Field is hitter-friendly.  13 of the last 20 meetings between these clubs have reached double digits in runs and this one should too.  Over is the call in this one Monday afternoon.
