Discover exclusive picks and predictions from our experts.

Colorado has the worst run differential in the National League and the second worst in all of MLB. The Rockies are No. 11 in team batting average, but only No. 27 in home runs. That’s not good enough if you play half your games at Coors Field.

The pitching staff was terrible and is the worst in Major League Baseball. The Rockies have a team ERA of 5.33 and have the fewest strikeouts in the Majors. The starters and relievers were equally bad.

The Twins are No. 24 in team batting average, but have shown some strength and are No. 11 in home runs. Minnesota scores 4.2 points per game home and away.

The pitching staff was below average, ranking No. 22 in team ERA. The bullpen has done well and is a little better at home.

Monday’s game

Hudson has pitched better on the road for the Rockies, but the Rockies are just 2-4 when he starts on the road. Colorado is 1-5 overall with Hudson on the road. Hudson’s road ERA is 3.41 compared to 5.25 overall.

Paddack pitched much better at home for the Twins, but was hit pretty hard the last time. He’s a good candidate to bounce back with a solid performance in this one.

The line is a little too high to play against the Twins. Minnesota doesn’t look bad on the runline at -115, although one of the best bets in the MLB for tonight could very well be the under here.

Tuesday game

Cal Quantrill is scheduled to start for the Rockies. The Twins are officially undecided on this game. Pablo Lopez followed Paddack in the last start, but the Twins have him listed for Wednesday.

Minnesota could go for a bullpen game depending on how Paddack does. The MLB weather report shows a high chance of rain, but this should be clear by game time.

Quantrill hasn’t pitched poorly for Colorado and has a 5-4 record, which is impressive considering this baseball team’s record. The Rockies are 6-7 when he starts and his ERA is under 4.00 both home and away.

The Rockies vs Twins series odds will have Minnesota favored in this game, as it should be. This could be another game where the bottom end is worth a look.

Wednesday match

Austin Gomber is set to get the start for Colorado and he hasn’t pitched that badly. The Rockies are 5-7 when he starts and he’s pitching to an overall ERA of 3.37.

  • The Rockies are 4-8 overall when he starts and 3-4 when he goes.

Lopez is listed as the starter here and he has struggled a bit this MLB season. The biggest problem for Lopez is that he has been inconsistent.

He allowed one run in five of his thirteen starts and five runs or more in four other starts. For the season, the Twins are 6-7 when he starts and his ERA is 5.45.

According to the Rockies vs Twins series odds, Lopez will be a medium favorite here and he’s a decent rebound candidate for Minnesota.

His last start wasn’t perfect, as he allowed seven runs. With Gomber on the mound and the Rockies scoring misery, we’ll have to do this again here.
