Reds vs Rockies Picks and Prediction

Teams near the bottom of their respective divisions will look to boost their standings in the second matchup of a three-game series, and according to MLB lines, it’s supposed to be another high-scoring game with the total set at 12½ runs.

It’s harder to make MLB predictions with not much known about either starter, as Reds starter Williamson is making his major league debut while Rockies starter Chase Anderson was a relief pitcher last for Tampa Bay.

Nevertheless, the Rockies prevailed at home over the Reds in the series opener, and they’re likely to do so again. Cincinnati is 22-44 at Coors Field since 2002, and the Rockies should make it 45 as they take the series in game two.

The Colorado Rockies are listed at -125 in our Vegas lines. This means that if you wager $100 on the Rockies, you have a chance to win $80. The Cincinnati Reds are +115, offering a chance to win $115 on a $100 wager.

The implied probability attached to the betting lines gives the Colorado Rockies a 55.56% chance to win, with the Cincinnati Reds at 46.51%.
