Why The Rockies Could Cover The Spread

Gomber is a much better pitcher away from Coors field. He has a 3.59 ERA, and that is more than three runs better than his home ERA. He also allows opponents to bat 43 points worse off him when he is pitching on the road. Gomber has a tough matchup, but it would be even worse if he was pitching at home. If Gomber can hold the Rays to just two or three runs, the Rockies will have a good chance to cover the spread.

Why The Rays Could Cover The Spread

Civale was having a great season for the Guardians and that has continued for the Rays. In three starts for the Rays, Civale has thrown 15 1/3 innings in those starts, struck out 11 batters, and he has a 2.93 ERA. He has been getting hit around a little bit, but he has also been able to limit the runs from those hits. The Rockies bat over 40 points worse when playing on the road. This is not a surprise, but it shows how bad the Rockies are away from Coors Field. Civale should be able to shut down the Rockies in this game, and help the Rays cover the spread.

Gomber allows opponents to hit .296 off him this season. The Rays have a great offense, so this is a great matchup. They are fourth in batting average in the MLB, fourth in OPS, fourth in home runs, and fourth in runs scored. The Rays are clearly a top-5 offense in the MLB, so they should be able to get to Gomber in this game.

Final Rockies-Rays Prediction & Pick

This is just a game I do not want to overthink. The Rays are the better team, and Civale is the better pitcher. I will take the Rays to win this game and cover the spread.

Final Rockies-Rays Prediction & Pick: Rays -1.5 (-120), Over 8 (-115)
