Rockies held to two hits
Colorado struggled to get anything going Sunday afternoon as it lost 6-1 at the Mets in a series finale. The Rockies allowed three runs in the bottom of the first inning and could not recover. David Dahl paced the offense as he went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI. Nolan Arenado also finished 1-for-4. Charlie Blackmon was 0-for-3 with a walk and scored the lone run. Jeff Hoffman took the loss as he allowed six earned runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings, striking out seven and walking two.

MLB Betting Trends
The Cubs are 1-5 in their last six road games. Chicago is 0-5 in its last five road games versus a right-handed starting pitcher.
The Rockies are 13-3 in their last 16 home games. Colorado is 6-0 in the last six Marquez home starts.
Coors Field seems like a disaster waiting to happen for Darvish as he has given up 11 home runs over his 66 1/3 innings this season. With Marquez dealing and feeling confident in his home park, this moneyline seems it could be even wider. Both teams have plenty of bats, but Marquez is more equipped to shut them down. Go with the Rockies.
