Dakota Hudson gets the start for Colorado today and will be opposed by Chris Paddack.

  • The MLB odds have the Twins at -220 with a total of 8-over (-120). The Twins are -115 on the runline at -1.5 runs.

The Rockies are scoring just 3.8 runs per game on the road this season. The pitching hasn’t been any better on the road, which is why the Rockies are in last place in the NL West’s MLB standings for 2024.

Uncover Exclusive Picks & Predictions From Our Experts.

Colorado has the worst run differential in the National League and the second-worst in all of MLB. The Rockies are No. 11 in team batting average, but just No. 27 in home runs. That’s not good enough when you play half your games at Coors Field.

The pitching staff has been dreadful and is the worst in Major League Baseball. The Rockies have a team ERA of 5.33 and have the fewest strikeouts in the Majors. The starters and the relievers have been equally bad.

The Twins are No. 24 in team batting average but have shown a bit of power and are No. 11 in homers. Minnesota is scoring 4.2 runs per game at home and away.

The pitching staff has been below average, ranking No. 22 in team ERA. The bullpen has been decent and is a little better at home.

Monday’s Game

Hudson has pitched better on the road for the Rockies, but the Rockies are just 2-4 when he starts on the road. Colorado is 1-5 in totals with Hudson on the road. Hudson’s road ERA is 3.41 compared to 5.25 overall.

Paddack has pitched much better at home for the Twins but was hit pretty hard last time out. He’s a good candidate to bounce back with a solid outing in this one.

The line is a little bit too high to play the Twins. Minnesota doesn’t look bad on the runline at -115, although one of the MLB best bets for tonight could very well be the under here.

Tuesday’s Game

Cal Quantrill is slated to start for the Rockies. The Twins are officially undecided on this game. Pablo Lopez followed Paddack last start, but the Twins have him listed for Wednesday.

Minnesota may go with a bullpen game depending on how Paddack fares. The MLB’s weather report shows a strong chance of rain, but it should be clear by game time.

Quantrill hasn’t pitched badly for Colorado and has a 5-4 record, which is impressive considering this baseball team record. The Rockies are 6-7 when he starts and his ERA is under 4.00 both home and away.

The Rockies vs Twins series odds will see Minnesota favored in this game, as they should be. This could be another game where the under is worth a look.

Wednesday’s Game

Austin Gomber is slated to make the start for Colorado and he hasn’t pitched all that bad. The Rockies are 5-7 when he starts and he’s pitching to a 3.37 ERA overall.

  • The Rockies are 4-8 in totals when he starts and 3-4 when he starts on the road.

Lopez is listed as the starter here and he’s had a bit of a tough go this MLB season. The biggest problem for Lopez is that he’s been inconsistent.

He’s allowed one run in five of his 13 starts and has allowed five runs or more in four other starts. For the season, the Twins are 6-7 when he starts and his ERA is 5.45.

The Rockies vs Twins series odds will see Lopez as a mid-sized favorite here and he’s a decent bounce-back candidate for Minnesota.

His last start wasn’t perfect, as he allowed seven runs. With Gomber on the mound and the Rockies scoring woes, we will have to make this another under call here.
