First Pitch: Saturday, 7:10 p.m. EDT
Line: Milwaukee -150, Colorado +140, Total: 7.5

The Rockies and Brewers are the only teams not involved in interleague play this weekend, and they continue their three-game series at Miller Park on Saturday. Odds.

The Brewers will try for their fifth straight home win on Saturday when they send Shaun Marcum (5-1, 2.54 ERA) to the mound. Since being acquired by Milwaukee in the offseason from Toronto, Marcum has been outstanding. After giving up four runs in 4.2 innings to lose his Brewers debut, Marcum is 5-0 with a 2.25 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in eight starts since. He allowed one run, five hits and one walk in seven innings of a 2-1 road victory versus the Dodgers on Monday. He hasn’t been as sharp at home, posting a 5.50 ERA and .296 opponents’ BA in his three home starts. Scores.

The Rockies take the field on Saturday anxious to forget the disaster that was Friday. Three times Colorado relievers blew saves during a 14-inning 7-6 loss, which ended when Prince Fielder hit a game-winning, two-run homer off of Felipe Paulino. Saturday, the Rockies will throw Clayton Mortensen (1-0, 2.01 ERA), who will make his third start of the season Saturday. The right-hander opposed San Francisco in his previous two starts, most recently a 7-4 home win Monday, when he allowed four runs in six innings to earn the victory.

Colorado has now lost seven of their past nine road games, while the Brewers are 14-6 (+6.4 Units) at home. Friday night’s meltdown still might be on the Rockies mind, so I like Marcum to lead Milwaukee to its fifth straight home win.

These two FoxSheets trends also back the Brewers to win Saturday:

MILWAUKEE is 29-8 (78.4%, +15.5 Units) against the money line as a favorite of -150 or more over the last 2 seasons. The average score was MILWAUKEE 6.5, OPPONENT 4.5 – (Rating = 1*). Las Vegas odds.

COLORADO is 9-15 (37.5%, -11.7 Units) against the money line vs. a good bullpen whose WHIP is 1.350 or better this season. The average score was COLORADO 4.1, OPPONENT 4.9 – (Rating = 1*).
