Two of the best teams in the National League, the Chicago Cubs and Colorado Rockies, will square off on Wednesday at Coors Field in Denver. They will play in the afternoon at 3:10 P.M ET.

The game is the final game of their current three-game series and their final meeting of the season.

Cubs continue to struggle on the road

The Cubs have lost the first two games of this series and that places their road record at 13-18 on the season. They were blown out on Tuesday by the Rockies, 10-3 as Jose Quintana allowed four runs (three earned) on four walks and five hits. He only lasted 4.2 innings, while the bullpen wasn’t much better. Brad Brach came in to relieve Quintana, allowing four runs in just 2/3 of an inning. On a positive note, Jason Heyward hit his 10th home run and ended up going 2-for-3 to improve his average to .252.

Brach has really struggled lately, allowing 13 earned runs over his last 6.2 innings over seven appearances.

The Cubs will send veteran lefty Cole Hamels, who is 5-2 with a 3.24 ERA this season. He faced St. Louis on Friday and allowed just three hits and a walk, while striking out 10 in eight scoreless innings to lead Chicago to a 3-1 win over their rival.

Rockies rolling at home

Coors Field has always been a nice home-field advantage for the Rockies. But it can also be a detriment to their pitching staff. Lately, it’s been advantageous as Colorado searches for their 11th straight victory at home as they go for the three-game sweep on Wednesday afternoon. On Tuesday, they jumped out to a 2-0 lead on the Cubs and scored seven in the fifth and sixth innings to put the game away. Right-handed starter Peter Lambert was solid again, yielding one run and just three hits in five innings. He’s now 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA in two career starts (both against the Cubs).

Pitching is and will always be an issue for the Rockies. Their starters own the worst ERA in baseball at a whopping 5.59. They’ll send right-hander Antonio Senzatela to the bump on Wednesday. He’s 5-4 with a 4.95 ERA and is coming off a solid start against the Mets last Friday. Senzatela allowed just a solo home run and four hits in six innings in a 5-1 victory. He is 1-0 with a 7.50 ERA in three games against the Cubs.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The streak ends today. The money line is pretty high so laying -1.5 on the run line might be the better bet. Hamels is the reason for the pick. He doesn’t mind pitching at Coors Field. He’s hasn’t been there since 2016, but with Texas and Philadelphia, he’s allowed just three runs in 13.1 innings over his last two starts from Colorado. Senzatela has been up and down lately. Take the road team.

Prediction: Chicago Cubs -138

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Hamels has been brilliant in his last two starts, giving up no earned runs and hasn’t gone over 100 pitches in his last four appearances. The Cubs are 4-0 Under their last 4 during game 3 of a series and Colorado is 4-1-1 Under their last 6 after a win. These two teams have gone under in four of the last six games.

Prediction: Under 12
