Giants vs. Rockies Odds & MLB Pick from Will Rogers: June 29th 2013

San Francisco Giants vs. Colorado Rockies
MLB Pick: Colorado -105 odds (June 29th 2013)

Let’s go with the Rockies again Saturday after I used them as yesterday’s free pick. The Giants are on a major slide right now and it doesn’t help that they’re playing at Coors Field this weekend. Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa has lost only one time at home all season.

Here are my keys to the game:
1. Giants Skid – San Francisco has lost five in a row and has been held to two runs or less in four of those losses. This is their second six-game losing streak on the road in the last month. They are now 14-26 away from home this season. Simply put, it’s not going well for the reigning World Series champs right now.

2. Jorge De la Rosa – Colorado’s starter has been outstanding at home this season with a 6-1 team start record and 3.40 ERA. He’s allowed just two runs his last two starts overall, and both were on the road. He also has a 10-4 TSR all-time vs. the Giants with a 3.40 ERA. As a favorite, his TSR is 49-19!

3. X-factor – Matt Cain has not been the same pitcher this year, and it hasn’t helped that the team has scored just 14 runs total for him in his last five starts. He has an 8.44 ERA his last three starts here at Coors Field.
Selection: This is a free MLB pick on the Colorado Rockies (1*).
