Rockies' Anderson allows five runs in five innings in last start
Tyler Anderson let in five runs in five innings and took a no-decision against the Dodgers on Friday. He gave up seven hits and three walks while fanning four in the ballgame, which his team eventually lost. He allowed a solo homer to Matt Kemp in the first inning. The left-hander's record holds at 3-1 with a 5.07 ERA in 12 starts. He has 53 strikeouts and 25 walks in 60 1/3 innings.
Reds' Mahle picks up win over Padres in last start
Tyler Mahle blanked the Padres for five innings Friday to win for the first time in three weeks. Mahle had given up four runs in three straight starts. He's been pretty good about notching strikeouts, totaling 61 in 63 2/3 innings to date, but the home run ball is a serious problem for him, one that will probably prevent him from amassing mixed-league value.
MLB Betting Trends
The Rockies are just 1-4 in Anderson's last five starts but are 5-1 in his last six road outings.
The Reds have dropped 27 of their last 36 games at home and are 2-7 in their last eight games versus National League West opponents following their 6-3 loss on Wednesday night.
The under has cashed in five of Anderson's last seven starts coming off five days of rest and has been a great play for bettors when Mahle starts for the Reds. For example, the under is 5-1 in Mahle's last six home starts, is 4-1-1 in his last six outings overall and is 5-2 in his last seven starts when he's coming off five days of rest.
The Pick: Rockies/Reds under 9
