Colorado Rockies Fantasy Spin
Daniel Murphy homered and drove in six runs as the Rockies routed the Reds 12-2 on Friday evening in Cincinnati. Murphy opened the scoring in the contest with a three-run blast off of Luis Castillo in the first inning. He then cleared the bases with a three-run double during a six-run rally in the ninth inning. With his 2-for-5 effort, the 34-year-old is now slashing .289/.339/.495 with 11 long balls and 57 RBI on the season.
Cincinnati Reds Fantasy Spin
Josh VanMeter went 3-for-4 and crushed his third home run of the season as the Reds fell to the Rockies on Friday night in Cincinnati. The 24-year-old swatted his solo homer off of Rockies' starter German Marquez in the second inning, pulling the Reds to within a run at 3-2. That would wind up being the extent of their offense in the game. He has been mighty impressive in his limited run with the Reds so far, slashing .297/.392/.500 with three round-trippers and nine RBI.
MLB Betting Trends
Despite winning back-to-back games, the Rockies are still just 5-16 in their last 21 games overall and 3-8 in their last 11 road contests.
The Reds have now dropped seven of 10 overall and six of their last seven at home.
The over is 5-1-1 in the last seven meetings between these two teams and is 15-5-2 in the last five meetings at the Great American Ballpark. The over is also 5-2 in the Rockies’ last seven games (all on the road) and a perfect 5-0 in their last five games following a win. On the other side, the over has cashed in four out of the Reds’ last five games following a loss and is 5-2 in their last seven when their opponent scores five runs or more in its previous game, as the Rockies did on Friday night.
The Pick: Rockies/Reds OVER 10
