Colorado Rockies Fantasy Spin

Mark Reynolds delivered a go-ahead RBI single in the 11th inning Tuesday as the Rockies outlasted the Red Sox 5-4. With two runners on and two outs in the 11th, Reynolds caught up with a 96-mph fastball from Sox reliever Ryan Brasier and sent it back up the middle, plating Trevor Story to give the Rockies the lead. The hit was his second of the evening, finishing 2-for-5 in the game. Unlike in some years past, Reynolds has struggled to find traction after winning a job out of spring, and after Tuesday's heroics he's still hitting just .195/.319/.403 overall. With plenty of moving parts and Brendan Rodgers raking at Triple-A, it's worth wondering if the Rockies will make a move at some point, with the 34-year-old being on the receiving end of the bad news.

Boston Red Sox Fantasy Spin

Michael Chavis went 2-for-5 with his seventh home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Rockies. Chavis got every bit of a Kyle Freeland offering in the second inning, the 451-foot blast effortlessly clearing the Green Monster in left. He also had a single in the contest. An 18 at-bat hitless stretch threatened to drop the 23-year-old out of favor in Boston, but he's now got five hits in his last 10 at-bats to bring his line up to .289/.407/.592 with seven homers, 20 RBI, 15 runs scored and two steals. Chavis appears here to stay.

MLB Betting Trends

Colorado

The Rockies are a perfect 5-0 in their last five road games when facing a left-handed starter.

Boston

The Red Sox are 5-1 in their last six games overall and are 5-0 in their last five games versus a right-handed starter.

Prediction:

With how good the Rockies have been when German Marquez takes the mound, it’s tempting to back Colorado getting plus odds. That said, the Red Sox are 39-16 in Eduardo Rodriguez’s last 55 starts, so the pitching matchup is a bit of a wash. The under, however, is 10-4 in Rodriguez’s last 14 home starts and is 15-6-2 in Marquez’s last 30 road outings. This is an underrated pitching matchup and with the total sitting at 9, I’ll take the under.

The Pick: Rockies/Red Sox UNDER 9
