New York Mets vs Colorado Rockies Game 1 Predictions 4/17/2021

On Colorado’s side, the team got some issues in dealing with the LA Dodgers this week losing at 0-7 on Tuesday and 2-4 on Wednesday. In the final game on Thursday, the Rockies spitted up four runs in the bottom of the 7th inning for a 5-7 defeat to complete a sweep. Pitcher Austin Gomber was on the mound in that period allowing 3 runs with 7 strikeouts in 6.0 innings pitched. Colorado had 9 hits from the dish and was 2-8 with runners in scoring position. Ryan McMahon was 2-4 and hit his 6th homer of the year. The Colorado Rockies posted a six-game losing streak to date and started this season with a batting average of 0.224 and 0.664 OPS.

For Saturday’s starting role, Colorado will be assigning Chi Chi Gonzalez to the bump. The right-handed thrower started his season with a 1-0 record, a 3.60 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and 5 strikeouts. In his three appearances to date, Gonzalez posted nine hits, four earned runs, six walks, and five strikeouts in 10.0 innings pitched. The right-hander starter gave up only one earned run in his last eight innings but has less exposure on the mound against the current line-up of the Mets in his pro pitching career.

New York Mets vs. Colorado Rockies. The MLB Pick for this game is New York -109. The Mets ranked 26th on the offense and 6th on defense while the Rockies ranked 17th on the offense and 22nd on defense. Colorado is much better on the offense by papers but New York just recorded a three-game winning streak while the Rockies lost 6 matches in a row. Ace starter deGrom was pushed back by one day due to weather but this will not change his determination to claim his first victory on the bump this 2021. The prediction, New York Mets will win 7-4.
