San Francisco Giants at Colorado Rockies Prediction

Heading into Tuesday’s NL West matchup between San Francisco and Colorado, the over-under line is set at 10 runs. However, look for this to be a lower-scoring game than expected. Kyle Freeland hasn’t given up more than 1 run in last 3 starts, while Carlos Rodon is always a tough matchup. I recommend taking the under.
