Feltner has pitched well in each of his last three starts for Colorado, giving them an advantage against Mets on the road. Unfortunately, the Rockies’ offense hasn’t shown much promise when away from home. Normally, this would be an easy pick for the hosts; however, given the Mets’ struggles at bat and their questionable situation on the mound combined with Feltner’s strong pitching in recent weeks, MLB betting experts advise backing the Rockies instead.
