Anderson has been solid for Colorado this season, especially considering his home park is Coors Field. Peralta started off his MLB career in fantastic fashion and made his debut with a stellar start at the Rockies, but he's struggled to find the plate and hitters are starting to figure him out. While Peralta has a bright future, now is a good time to bet against him as a favorite. Go with Colorado to bounce back with a win here.
