Greinke is 2-0 with a 2.33 ERA in three outings versus the Rockies this season, and one of those wins took place at Coors Field. Why the Rockies can pay on the MLB linesColorado has more momentum than any team in the division right now and plays the next 12 games against NL West foes, including six more versus Arizona.The Rockies will counter Greinke with Antonio Senzatela (4-5, 4.92 ERA) Trevor Story Jersey , and he has earned three of his wins at Coors this year. Last time out, the 23-year-old allowed three runs and nine hits in five innings with two walks and six strikeouts against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday, and Colorado was able to pull off a 5-3 victory. If Senzatelacan avoid pitching worse than that here, the Rockies will have a solid chance to win.Smart betting pickEven though Senzatela has picked up three of his four wins at home, his ERA is 5.04 and opposing hitters are hitting .328 against him there. That is not good obviously, and he is also 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA in two games versus the D-backs this season.This is a must-win matchup for Arizona, so look for the team to back up its status as a road favorite by coming through with a big victory to end its three-game losing streak.
