Colorado Rockies at San Diego Padres Prediction

Heading into Friday night’s NL West matchup between Colorado and San Diego, the Padres are the heavy favorite to pick up the win. The odds also suggest that this will be a low-scoring game, with an over-under line at 7 runs. I expect this to be a tightly contested matchup and recommend taking the Rockies to keep this game within 2 runs. I like Colorado on the runline.
