The Rockies have put up a fight in their home stadium, but it just hasn't been enough as they have dropped the first two games of this series.

Phillies vs Rockies Prediction & Pick

The Phillies enter Sunday on a five-game winning streak as they have climbed back over the .500 mark and into second place in the NL East. Staying dominant over low-level teams like the Rockies will be crucial if they want to repeat the success they saw last season when they won the NL pennant.

The good news for Philly is that Aaron Nola will be the one pitching in an attempt to earn that sixth straight victory. The 29-year-old has bounced back from a shaky start to the year as he has posted a 3.24 ERA over his last five starts. Nola also owns a 4-1 record in eight career starts against Colorado.

The Rockies will counter with Kyle Freeland, who has been solid with a 3.57 ERA across eight starts. The only problem is that Freeland has struggled when facing the Phillies before considering he owns a 4.20 ERA and 1-3 record against them in seven careerstarts. I'll back the road team to earn the win.

Final Score Prediction: Phillies: 5 | Rockies: 4

Phillies vs Rockies Best Bet

While Nola may not be racking up strikeouts at the same rate he was when he finished fourth in Cy Young voting last season, this line is too hard to pass up. The Phillies starter has logged at least 5 strikeouts in each of his last three starts and has tallied 24 strikeouts in 25.0 career innings at Coors Field. The Rockies are also averaging 9.67 batter strikeouts over the last three games (No. 25 in MLB).

Bet: Aaron Nola Over 4.5 Strikeouts (-164)
