Rockies 7, Phillies 3

Money line (ML)

GIMME the ROCKIES (-110) for 1 unit because Gray is Colorado’s best starting pitcher, and Anderson is more of a back-of-the-rotation starter.

Statcast grades Gray out in the 89th percentile of barrel%, 83rd percentile of hard-hit rate and 85th percentile of expected slugging percentage.

Conversely, Anderson is in the 49th percentile of hard-hit rate, 17th percentile in expected slugging percentage, 18th percentile in expected wOBA and his numbers at Coors Field are subpar as well.

Anderson is 2-2 with a 6.66 ERA (25 2/3 IP, 19 ER), 1.60 WHIP and 7.0 K/9 in five career starts at Coors Field.

Also, the Phillies cannot put together a winning streak and are 0-6 in their last six games following a win.

Run line/Against the spread (ATS)

Slight “LEAN” to the ROCKIES -1.5 (+145) for a one-fifth unit if at all because Colorado has a 16-13 run line (RL) record as a home favorite since the start of 2020 and Philadelphia has a winning RL record as a road dog over that span.

Furthermore, Colorado’s run line price is being steamed up because money is coming in on Philadelphia. So if you’re planning on betting the Rockies to win by two or more runs then wait until closer to the first pitch for a better price.

Over/Under (O/U)

“LEAN” to the UNDER 11.5 (-110) for a quarter unit because the Rockies are 0-4 O/U in Gray’s starts this year and have gone Under the total in four straight prior to yesterday.

Additionally, according to, nearly 90% of the money is on the Over in Phillies-Rockies and, as we all know, 90% of sports bettors don’t win.
