Cal Quantrill will take the mound for the Colorado Rockies as they face the Chicago Cubs on the road. Quantrill is looking to bounce back after a rough outing in his first start of the season, where he gave up five earned runs in five innings of work against the Diamondbacks.

For the Rockies, we like Nolan Jones to have a good game at the plate. He has the highest home run projection on the team and 14th best in the league today. Charlie Blackmon has the highest total hits projection on the team, but we like Kris Bryant’s chances to hit a home run, as his home run projection is 15th best in the league today.

Cubs Records & Stats

Luke Little will be making his first start of the season for the Chicago Cubs as they take on the Colorado Rockies at home. In his two appearances out of the bullpen, Little has yet to allow a run, giving up just one hit and one walk in two innings of work. The hard-throwing lefty will look to build on his early success as he transitions to the starting rotation.

Our model is high on Cubs outfielder Seiya Suzuki today, as he has the highest total hits projection on the team and in the league. Suzuki also has the best odds to hit a home run for the Cubs and has the 3rd best odds in the league. Cody Bellinger is also expected to have a solid game, as his total hits projection is the 2nd best on the team and 6th best in the league.
