San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Alex Dickerson went 4-for-5 with three RBI and a run scored to lead the Giants to an 8-4 extra-inning victory over the Rockies on Tuesday. Dickerson singled and came around to score the Giants first run of the contest on an RBI double by Mike Yastrzemski in the second inning. He smacked a leadoff double in the fourth inning to record his seventh multi-hit effort in just 31 games this season and also plated another run with an RBI single in the eighth inning. He capped off the monster evening with a go-ahead RBI single off Rockies closer Wade Davis in the 10th inning. The four hits were a career-high for the 29-year-old outfielder, who has looked rejuvenated thanks to a change of scenery this season. He owns a surreal .342/.402/.633 triple-slash line with 17 runs scored, four homers, 20 RBI and one steal in 87 plate appearances.
Colorado Rockies Fantasy Spin
Trevor Story went 1-for-5 with a solo homer and a pair of RBI in the Rockies’ extra-inning loss to the Giants on Tuesday. Story led off the ninth inning with a solo shot off Giants closer Will Smith to trim the Rockies deficit to two runs at the time. It was his 21st round-tripper of the season. He also plated an additional run with a fielder’s choice in the sixth inning. The 26-year-old fantasy superstar owns a .283/.348/.540 triple-slash line with 71 runs scored, 53 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 374 plate appearances.
MLB Betting Trends
The Giants are a perfect 4-0 in their last four games overall and have won seven straight against divisional rivals.
The Rockies are just 2-10 in their last 12 games overall and winless in their last seven games versus NL West foes.
I continue to back the struggling Rockies and they continue to rack up losses. That said, they’re 5-0 in Jon Gray’s last five home starts and have won five of his last six outings overall. They’re also 13-3 in Gray’s last 16 home starts versus an opponent with a losing record and have won five of his last six outings versus NL West rivals. The Giants, meanwhile, are just 7-20 in their last 27 games played at Coors Field despite winning three straight in Colorado. I see the Rockies letting out some frustrations today at home.
The Pick: Colorado Rockies -1.5 (+105)
