Zac Gallen under 6.5 Ks -155 bet 3 units to win 1.94 units: There is a ton of juice on this play but Karma projections have him all the way down at 4 Ks projected so the juice is warranted. We all know about Coors fields, it’s a pitcher’s nightmare and for some reason the books have him projected way too high. Gallen has had a great start to the season this year. He has 3 starts and in those starts he has 21 Ks on 16 IPs. Which is a phenomenal 11.8 k/9. Unfortunately, or fortunately for us, tonight that average of 7 Ks per game will come to a screeching halt. The Rockies are 6th in the league in z-Contact% meaning if the ball is in the strike zone they are hitting it 86% of the time. All we need is contact from these Rockies batters they don’t have to be hits. He is only going up against 4 high K% batters and Gallen loves to pitch changeups against lefties. Even though his k% is great against lefties and doesn’t lose much going up against lefties vs righties. The Rockies lefties are great against changeups and all but 2 have a contact % higher than 75%. This under should be pretty easy tonight.
