Colorado Rockies Fantasy Spin

Mark Reynolds went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in the Rockies' loss to the Giants on Saturday. It was the only hit of the game for Reynolds, but it did bring the Rockies to within a run at 3-2 in the seventh. The veteran first baseman now has two homers on the year to go along with four RBI. When he's in the lineup against southpaws, he offers some DFS value. Outside of that, you can probably steer clear, even playing his home games in that hitting utopia we call Coors Field.

San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin

Kevin Pillar homered for the fourth time in five games in a victory on Saturday over the Rockies. Pillar took Kyle Freeland deep in the fifth inning to extend the San Francisco lead over the Rockies to 3-0. It's a weird power surge for a player that hasn't had many over his career, as Pillar's career high in homers is 16 in 2017. You shouldn't expect this to continue because of course it's not going to. The hope is that he can improve on his .151 average and .145 on-base percentage, which he obviously will, as well.

MLB Betting Trends

Colorado

The Rockies are 1-5 in their last six games versus the Giants and are 1-5 in their last six road games against San Francisco.

San Francisco

The Giants are 4-1 in German Marquez’s last five starts against them and are 4-0 when he starts in San Francisco.

Prediction:

Derek Holland was a grease fire before joining the Giants a year ago. Since then, he’s posted a 3.57 ERA and owns a 3.38 ERA through three starts this season. There’s no question that he benefits from pitching in the spacious Oracle Park, but that’s exactly where he’ll toe the rubber today. The Rockies have struggled offensively to begin the season and their offensive numbers always take a hit on the road. The Giants have been profitable on the moneyline against Marquez but they’ll find it difficult to touch him today.

The Pick: Rockies/Giants UNDER 7
