NL Wild Card

COL +1 -105 (3u) L / under 8.5 -115 (2u) L

Taking the +1 line with the dog for this division rivalry game where the two teams share a spring training facility and are very familiar with each other. Gray heads into the postseason with 13 straight starts of allowing 3 runs or less and lowering his FIP to 3.18, which is even more impressive when half of his starts were in high altitude at Coors Field and managed to put up those numbers with one of the highest BABIP in the league at .338.

Greinke has continued to pitch like the ace he is, but if last night's AL Wild Card game is any indication, both teams could turn to their bullpen earlier in the game in an elimination situation which lessens the impact of both starters and turns the game over to some unimpressive bullpens. With both teams featuring some dangerous bats that could change the game with one swing, there's value in grabbing the run with the Rockies tonight in a potentially low scoring game.
