Matchups featuring the Colorado Rockies (30-37, 11-18 away) against the Miami Marlins (29-36, 15-14 home) play out a lot like real estate and pitching. It’s all about location.
At home, Colorado is 8-1 straight in the last nine games when facing the Marlins. Move the place of the action to Miami, though, and it’s the Marlins who are 4-1 SU in the last five games and 6-3 over the past nine.

Colorado vs Miami Probable Pitchers
Rockies right-hander Ryan Feltner probably deserves a bit better fate then his record would indicate. He’s only had one appearance among his first starts this season that wouldn’t qualify as a quality start.

Feltner’s lone win this season was a 7-1 verdict over the Marlins on May 30. He worked seven innings of four hit ball, striking out six and allowing one earned run for a 1.29 ERA.
That’s the only time Feltner has faced the Marlins. He’ll be making his first career appearance at loanDepot Park. Feltner is among the bottom 6% of MLB hurlers in exit velocity (114.7).
Feltner vs Castano
If you want to talk hard-luck pitchers, consider the plight of Marlins lefty Daniel Castano. He’s made four appearances this season, including one start, covering 10.1 innings.
During that span, Castano has surrendered one unearned run but that was enough to tag him with the loss in a 5-4 setback May 18 against the Washington Nationals. That gives Castano the unusual season stats of 0-1 with an 0.00 ERA.

Castano made his first start of the season June 15 at Philadelphia. He scattered five hits over 6.2 innings and didn’t figure in the decision in a 3-1 loss.
In 11 career starts, Castano is 0-4 with a 3.80 ERA. This will be his first appearance against the Rockies. He’s 0-2 with a 2.67 ERA at loanDepot Park.

Rockies vs Marlins Prediction
For starters, take a long, hard look at the over. Six of the last seven Rockies-Marlins games have gone over. The winning team in this matchup has hit for double digits in runs in six of the past 11 games.
As for the game itself, the Marlins are a much better home ballclub. The Rockies share the NL mark for the fewest road wins with the Cincinnati Reds.
Pick: Atlanta Braves ML (-170)
