San Diego Padres vs. Colorado Rockies Pick – MLB June 19, 2022

The San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies clash in the final meeting of a three-game series at Coors Field. The Rockies are looking for the sweep at Coors on Sunday afternoon. They are coming off a 5-4 win over the Padres yesterday.

Colorado found a clutch offense in the bottom of the 8th, scoring on a long ball and closing the game out in the final frame. This was after a 10-4 win for the Rockies on Friday night to get the party started.

Kyle Freeland and German Marquez both allowed 4 earned runs, but the bullpen stepped up nicely. The relievers stepping up isn’t something the Rockies have been accustomed to doing.

The Rockies’ bullpen has not been dependable this season, but they were for at least a couple of games. This team has looked good against the Padres. However, being inconsistent is all part of the game for the Rockies.

They can look like a contender sometimes, but then go a whole week looking terrible. The Rockies are 28-37 and 12 games behind the LA Dodgers in the NL West. The Rox are going into the series finale with losses in four of their previous nine attempts.

The Padres were on a four-game winning streak before getting tripped up the last two days.

San Diego had won eight of ten games before seeing the Rockies in this series. They have a chance to avoid the sweep with Blake Snell on the bump on Sunday.

The verdict is still out on Snell in 2022. He appeared late in the rotation because of an injury and is working himself into form. The Padres would like to see better numbers, but he’s only made six starts.

Snell is getting the call to start at Coors Field while Antonio Senzatela is going for the Rockies. Head below for our free Padres vs. Rockies prediction on June 19, 2022.

Padres vs. Rockies Prediction:

Blake Snell will be asked to do more for the rest of the season. He has plenty of room to improve his numbers.

Snell is going into this one with an ERA of 5.04 and a 1.36 WHIP. He doesn’t have a win yet with three losses.

The good news for Snell is that he has looked great at times.

Snell has allowed 3 or fewer earned runs in four of his five starts. In his latest performance, he had one of his best starts of the season.

Through 6 innings, Snell allowed 2 earned runs in a 4-2 win over the Rockies at Petco Park. That was at Petco, which is a much more friendly place to pitch a game.

In any case, as long as Snell doesn’t get throttled in this one, the Padres should be in a good position. The Rockies are hitting .229 with 2 home runs versus Snell in 89 at-bats.

I don’t think this is going to be a perfect start for Snell. He will likely run into some trouble innings. That said, Snell should be better than Antonio Senzatela.

The offense has been lacking for the Padres at Coors Field. This looked like a series where they can really pour it on in Denver, but it hasn’t been all that thus far.

San Diego is ninth in the majors with 4.75 runs per 9 innings.

The Padres have hit better on the road than Petco Park, which is well-known as a pitcher’s park. San Diego is hitting .240 overall with 4.77 runs per 9 innings at home and 5.44 runs per 9 on the road.

San Diego Padres vs. Colorado Rockies Betting Trends:


  • Record (Last 10): 7-3
  • 7-2 overall in their previous nine games on the road
  • 6-1 overall in their previous seven games on a Sunday
  • 12-4 overall in their previous 16 games as a betting favorite on the road
  • 4-2 overall in their previous five games versus a team with a losing record
  • 7-3 overall in their previous ten third game of a series


  • Record (Last 10): 4-6
  • 2-7 overall in their previous nine games at home
  • 2-6 overall in their previous eight games as an underdog at home
  • 12-27 overall in their previous 38 games as an underdog
  • 13-26 overall in their previous 39 games
  • OVER is 8-3-2 in their previous 13 games versus a left-handed starter

  • Senzatela has posted an ERA of 4.79 and a 1.81 WHIP. He is putting too many runners on base and has to feel fortunate his ERA is only at 4.79.

    An ERA of 4.79 doesn’t look good, but it could be worse given a 1.81 WHIP.

    That’s especially true at Coors Field, where home runs can come in bunches. Senzatela has notched a 5.19 ERA and 1.67 WHIP in his previous three outings.

    He’s been loading up the bases at Coors Field, but wiggling himself out of jams. Senzatela has an ERA of 3.90 at home, with a .405 OBP.

    I’m going with Senztala failing to get out of those jams this time against the Padres. The bats have been quiet for San Diego during this road trip, but I see them getting going for one game.

    Snell pitches well enough to put the Padres in a position to win this against the Rockies’ bullpen, which has been uncharacteristically good this series.

    Only two teams in the majors have a worse pen than Colorado. I don’t think they get through as easily on Sunday.

    I’m backing the Padres to avoid the sweep and win on Sunday at Coors Field.
