    As the Rockies open a three-game series in San Francisco against the Giants we must admit...we're a little bit stumped by the moneyline for this one. Why in the hell are the Giants favored over the Rockies tonight?

    The Rockies are a terrific road bet in 2017 at 25-16. Sure, they are coming off getting swept in their three-game series in Los Angeles against the Dodgers, but there is no shame in getting swept by a very good Dodgers team and that should be more motivation for them to come out on fire against the pathetic Giants.

    The Giants are a mess right now. They were just swept at home by the New York Mets, they've lost 12 of their last 13 games overall, they've lost 10 of their last 11 games at AT&T Park, and they are sending Jeff Samardzija to the mound tonight.

    The Giants have lost five of Samardzija's last six starts and they have already lost three of his starts against the Rockies this season. In his previous three starts against Colorado in 2017, Samardzija owns an ERA of 9.33 and a WHIP of 1.64.

    Rockies' starting pitcher German Marquez certainly isn't the reason for the strange line. The Rockies have won seven of his last eight starts and over his last three outings he owns a team win/loss record of 3-0, a 1.93 ERA, and a WHIP of 1.14.
    Oh yeah - the Rockies have won nine consecutive meetings with the Giants.
    ======================================================]
    And from my own notes SF has lost the first game of their last 5 Home Series by a combined score of SF 5, Opponent 28 ......
    Like that KCy game the other night, I refuse to touch this game. There ya go, Scott. Final should now be Rockies 10-0.

    Good luck, bud. There are all juicy prices on the other pups tonight. Takin' em all except skipping the Cubbies. And the Rocks.

    Heading out to Saratoga today, so thought I'd post a horse I like with a fitting name for the poly guys down here. A 2 year old colt making his 3rd start after improving in his last start when blinkers were added now stretches out and switches to the turf with one of the best turf jockeys in the country, Julien Leparoux, picking up the mount. Goes off in race 5, post time 3:14

    That's one of my angles, wabash. Horse showing speed going onto the weeds for the first time.

    Can't get to the track today. Hope he gets you a nice ticket.

    Have fun at the Spa.

    Heading there Saturday if the weather cooperates.

    Looks like he broke in the middle of the pack. Was expecting speed from your breakdown of his lines.

    But how about the horse that won. First time starter from last to first with a huge middle move, pulling away to win by four. Impressive.

    "Evaluator". Gonna remember that horse.
