Zac Gallen and cheap prices are tough to turn down, but he’s coming off a shaky month of June where he allowed 25 hits and 15 earned runs in 25.2 innings. Chad Kuhl has honestly been the better pitcher lately, allowing 29 hits and 11 earned runs in his last 29.1 innings. Kuhl has also been money at home, where he has a 2.48 ERA and .221 allowed batting average. Give me the Rockies at home and the even money.
