Colorado Rockies Pick

Under 63.5 Wins (DraftKings)

I was on this from the moment win totals was released, and it’s my favorite bet off the entire MLB slate. The Rockies probably aren’t the worst team in baseball — the Pirates are — but they’re likely to finish with the worst record in baseball. The reason? They play the Dodgers and Padres a combined 38 times, and the entirety of the NL West (the Giants and Diamondbacks aren’t all that bad) 76 times.

Oh, and the team isn’t very good, either. The Rockies currently have three hitters projected to be above-average offensively by DRC+: Trevor Story, Charlie Blackmon and C.J. Cron. The rotation is led by the promising Germán Márquez, but behind him is the uninspiring trio of Jon Gray, Antonio Senzatela and Kyle Freeland. And Freeland is already hurt. Anyway, the Rockies are going to be really bad. Hammer this under.
