San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin

Mac Williamson went 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBI in his 2019 debut as the Giants beat the Rockies 14-4 in Coors Field on Tuesday. The line-drive homer probably would have been a double or maybe an out in most parks, but it carried just into the stands in left in Coors. Williamson figures to be the Giants' everyday left fielder for now, and he will definitely hit some homers. He probably won't do enough else to be a particularly useful player, but time will tell.

Colorado Rockies Fantasy Spin

Chris Iannetta homered, doubled and walked against the Giants on Tuesday. Iannetta was making his second start in four games since being activated from the DL on May 3. The Rockies really need the offense, so there's a good argument for using him over Tony Wolters most of the time.

MLB Betting Trends

San Francisco

The Giants are 1-6 in Derek Holland’s last seven starts and are 1-4 in his last five road outings.

Colorado

The Rockies have won 14 of Kyle Freeland’s last 17 home starts but are just 1-5 in his last six outings overall.

Prediction:

The pitching matchup screams “over” but look at the total for this game. How often do you see a total that is under 10 runs at Coors Field? The forecast today in Denver calls for temperatures under 40 degrees and the wind is expected to blow across the field from right-center. Kyle Freeland is also on the mound today for the Rockies and he owns a career ground ball rate around 50-percent. The Giants also lack power and the under is 13-3-1 in the last 17 meetings between these two teams, including 5-2 in the last seven meetings at Coors and 6-2-1 in Freeland’s last nine starts versus San Francisco. I got burned by the under in Game 1 of this series but I’m going to roll the dice again today.

The Pick: Giants/Rockies UNDER 9.5
