The Rockies have won their last five home games. Colorado is 5-0 in the last five Marquez starts.

Jackson struggled mightily in his last start at home versus Boston and isn't likely to have it much easier at Coors Field. With Marquez dealing, the Blue Jays aren't likely to keep up in this contest. Don't risk your money on the Blue Jays here. The safe bet is on Colorado.
