MLB FREE PICK: Take Colorado. According to latest MLB trends, NY Mets are 5-16 last 21 as a dog, 2-8 in Gee's last 10 starts on grass and 11-31 last 42 vs. a team with a winning record. Rockies are 8-0 last 8 as a home favorite, 6-0 last 6 as a home favorite of 110 to -150, 10-1 last 11 as a favorite, 10-4 in Nicasio's last 14 home starts and 8-3 last 11 overall.
The Mets (7-4, 8-3 O/U) are coming off two road wins over Minnesota over the weekend, as Sunday's game was postponed. Colorado is coming off a road sweep over San Diego, beating them on Sunday, 2-1. The Mets send out Dillon Gee (0-2, 7.71 ERA), who is off to a rocky start. He allowed three home runs and seven runs on 10 hits over three innings in a 8-3 loss at Philadelphia last Tuesday. Nicasio will pitch in his first home game since June 2 due to knee issues. He has 6-3 with a 4.30 ERA at home compared to 1-4 with a 5.08 ERA in 12 outings on the road. That's unusual for a Colorado pitcher. Colorado will pound Gee into submission. The Mets take on the Rockies from Coors Field in the cold conditions at 8:40pmET on Monday.
