Carl Taylor, of Cappers Picks, thinks we could be in for a high-scoring affair. Taylor notes that the Rockies are familiar with Washington's starting pitcher, Patrick Corbin, and is expecting Colorado to win, 7-4.

Sports Chat Place

The Sports Chat Place crew likes the value of the home team here. They think the Rockies are playing their best baseball so far this season and are taking the Rockies straight up.

Bang the Book

The Bang The Book staff likes the home team as well in this matchup. They note how Corbin posted a 5.12 ERA in his four starts against the Rockies last season and that they should be able to take advantage of him again. Bang The Book is taking the Rockies moneyline.

That's all three experts taking the home-underdog Rockies to win straight up and extend their series lead to 2-0.
