8:10 PM EST. The “Coors Field angle” originated right here at this site about 8 years ago and it’s back in play this year. For those of you that are new to this site or have never heard of it, allow us to present it to you once again. Coors Field is the best hitter’s park in the majors and it’s not close. Totals are always above 10 and usually 11 or 12 because it’s a hitters paradise and a pitcher's nightmare. One-run games are rare. Starters usually do not matter, as very, very few are immune to the conditions/elements at this park. It is near impossible to predict what is about to transpire so instead of using any other handicapping approaches, we deemed it a profitable proposition to just play the underdog on the reverse run line.

Colorado is going to be an underdog at home frequently this year if the win projections hold true. There have been some outlier years but for the most part, Colorado will likely play around .500 at home this year, maybe a bit less or maybe a bit better. Regardless, we’ll keep a running count of it at the bottom of each writeup all season long to make it easy to follow. The play at Coors Field all year long will be the underdog -1½ + a price, regardless of the starters.
