Colorado Rockies vs San Diego Padres 3/30/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


As the Rockies begin their season, they must contend with the daunting challenge of competing in one of baseball’s toughest divisions following a last-place finish in 2022.


While the team did not make any major acquisitions during the offseason, they are banking on former Giants and Cubs slugger Kris Bryant to bounce back after an injury-shortened season.


Additionally, the Rockies are hoping for strong performances from first baseman C.J. Cron and third baseman Ryan McMahon, as well as veteran DH Charlie Blackmon under new infield shift rules.


However, the team’s pitching staff lacks a true ace, and their success will heavily rely on the bats of the lineup. 


Taking the mound for the season opener, Rockies right-hander German Marquez tied for the team lead in wins. In his career, Marquez has struggled in April, posting a 4-9 record with a 4.69 ERA in 24 starts.


However, the pitcher has been more effective on the road, boasting a 3.77 ERA and a 34-30 record.


Marquez will look to carry over his success from last season against the Padres, where he went 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA, allowing 14 hits in 12 innings while striking out an impressive 9.75 batters per nine innings


  • The Colorado Rockies are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games against the Padres.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 10 of the Rockies’ last 14 games on the road.
  • Colorado is 3-7 SU in their last 10 games on the road against San Diego.

Colorado Rockies vs San Diego Padres Predictions 3/30/2023


The San Diego Padres aim to build on their impressive performance from the previous year.


The Padres orchestrated several key trades, which almost propelled them to a World Series appearance before succumbing to the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League Championship Series in 2022.


Despite their success, the Padres continued to bolster their roster by acquiring former Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts to a multi-year contract during the offseason.


Bogaerts’ arrival enhances the team’s already formidable lineup, which will be further bolstered by the return of Fernando Tatis Jr., now a right fielder, from suspension in the first half of the season.


In addition, the Padres added designated hitter/first baseman players Nelson Cruz and Matt Carpenter to create an excellent left/right combination at the plate.


Starting on the mound for the Padres is Blake Snell. Last season, Snell began the season on the injured list, but he regained his form after the All-Star break. He amassed eight wins in 24 starts and surrendered only 103 hits in 128 innings pitched.


Snell has a career record of 6-4 with a 2.85 ERA in 20 April starts and boasts an impressive 11.21 K/9 rate in that month.


Last season, Snell finished 1-1 with a 5.31 ERA in four starts against the Rockies. The left-hander has been outstanding in front of his home crowd throughout his career, registering a 2.70 ERA and a record of 31-23, along with an 11.43 K/9 rate.


  • The total went OVER in 4 of San Diego’s last 5 matches with the Rockies.
  • The total hung OVER in 5 of the San Diego Padres’ last 7 games at home.
  • The Padres are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games at home against Colorado.

Colorado Rockies vs San Diego Padres. The MLB pick for this game is the San Diego Padres. While San Diego went 9-10 against Colorado last season, they went 6-3 against Colorado in San Diego.


In addition, the Padres outscored the Rockies 47-27 in San Diego last season. The Rockies did little to supplement their roster this offseason and will be missing second baseman Rogers.


Expect the Padres’ powerful lineup to put up good numbers against the Rockies’ suspect pitching staff. In addition, the Padres have won five of their last six Opening Day games. Prediction: San Diego will win 6-4.
