Sports Betting Expert
The Colorado Rockies are in San Francisco this week for a three-game series against the rival Giants. Monday night’s series opener is set for 9:45 p.m. (ET) at Oracle Park. In Colorado, Sports Illustrated Sportsbook has opened the Rockies as +205 road underdogs.
These two NL West Division foes are neck-and-neck with one another in the current standings. The Rockies and the Giants are each 16-12 through their first 28 games this season. Colorado is 5-7 in 12 previous road games, and San Francisco has posted an 8-7 record at home.
The Rockies have been able to make up some ground in the standings with six straight-up wins in their last 10 games. San Francisco did win the final two games of a weekend series against the St. Louis Cardinals. Yet, it is still just 3-7 SU during a same 10-game span.

To get this week’s series started on a winning note, the Rockies will go with Austin Gomber as their starting pitcher. The left hander will be making his sixth start of the new season. He has split four of those games at 2-2 on the year through 27.2 total innings pitched. His ERA is 3.58 with a 1.23 WHIP.
San Francisco has penciled-in Carlos Rodon as its starter for Monday night. Another lefty, Rodon gets the edge in this matchup on the mound. He has won three of his first five starts with just one loss. Through 29 innings of work, his ERA stands at a solid 1.55 with an even more impressive 0.83 WHIP.
With SI Sportsbook betting lines heavily tied to the starters for this game, it is easy to see why the Giants are set as -250 home favorites to win. The betting line for the total is currently listed at 6.5 runs.
This will be the first meeting between these two teams this season. Colorado is just 2-8 SU in its last 10 road games against the Giants. The Rockies have lost seven in a row to San Francisco as part of last season’s head-to-head results. The total has stayed UNDER in four of the last five meetings.
