Diamondbacks vs. Rockies Prediction
The Colorado Rockies won a walk-off thriller last night over the Arizona Diamondbacks to keep pace as the frontrunner in the NL West standings. Is Colorado the right bet to make again today as the series concludes?

LeMahieu hits walk-off homer
D.J. LeMahieu hit a walk-off 2-run home run last night to send the Rockies to a 4-3 victory over the Diamondbacks. He finished the contest 3-fpr-5 with the home run, two runs and two RBIs. Nolan Arenado was 3-for-4 with a home run, two doubles and two RBIs. Matt Holliday and David Dahl both went 1-for-3 plus a walk. Wade Davis picked up the win in relief as he struck out two in a perfect inning of work.
Escobar, Avila homer in defeat
Eduardo Escobar was 1-for-4 with a 2-run homer in yesterday's loss for Arizona. Paul Goldschmidt finished 2-for-4 with a double and a run. Alex Avila ended the contest 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk. Yoshihisa Hirano took the loss in relief as he allowed two earned runs on two hits in one-third of an inning.
Clay Buchholz (7-2, 2.01 ERA) will start today for the D-backs, while the Rockies will counter with Kyle Freeland (14-7, 2.91).
MLB Betting Trends
The under is 12-3-1 in the last 16 Diamondbacks road games. Arizona is 2-6 in the last eight meetings.
The under is 21-7-1 in the last 29 Rockeis home games. The under is 6-2 in the last eight Colorado games overall.
Freeland has been consistent all season and has seemingly perfected how to pitch at Coors Field, limiting the opposition's scoring output basically every time out. While Buchholz has had a very strong season, regression is expected and where better than the thin air of Denver for that to happen? I like Colorado to get the victory in this one.
