Diamondbacks vs. Rockies: Picks, predictions, how to watch Saturday’s game

We go over how to watch Saturday’s game between the Diamondbacks and Rockies and make some picks.

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at Colorado Rockies Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies square off on Saturday with first pitch set for 8:10 p.m. ET. The game takes place at Coors Field in Denver and will only be available on local TV or through an subscription. Zac Gallen (7-2, 3.12 ERA) will step on the mound for the D-Backs while Jose Urena (1-3, 4.63 ERA) will get the start for the Rockies.

Colorado (51-64) was able to open this three-game series with a 5-3 victory last night. With two on in the bottom of the seventh, Charlie Blackmon singled home Sam Hilliard to break a 3-3 tie with the D-Backs. Right after him, Jose Iglesias drive home Wynton Bernard on a sacrifice fly to provide an extra insurance run. The victory pulled Colorado to within 1.5 games of Arizona in the NL West standings.

Arizona (51-61) had the momentum early in the ballgame, beginning with Cooper Hummel driving home a run in the top of the second. Two innings later, he doubled to right field and plated two more to give the visitors a 3-0 lead. From there, the Diamondbacks’ lead gradually slipped away as the Rockies pulled ahead. Arizona would fail to get a single runner on base over the course of the final three innings.

Odds, picks & predictions

Run Line: Diamondbacks -1.5 (+100)
Run total: 11.5
Moneyline odds: Diamondbacks -150, Rockies +130

Moneyline pick: Rockies +130

We’ll go with the Rockies on the moneyline tonight. Gallen has been great on the mound for the Diamondbacks but hasn’t been infallible. That’s been apparent in his previous two starts against Colorado, yielding a combined 10 hits and seven earned runs in those outings. Go with the home team to pick up another win.

Player prop pick: Jose Iglesias over 0.5 RBI (+170)

Iglesias has had himself a great week at the plate, recording eight RBI over the Rockies’ last seven games. We’ll predict another one for him tonight.
