Colorado Rockies vs. Washington Nationals prediction and best bet by handicapper Jason Radowitz for Wednesday night's game from Coors Field.

Colorado Rockies vs. Washington Nationals Prediction: Can Patrick Corbin Bounce Back From an Awful April?

The Colorado Rockies have started the season 13-10. In the off-season, nobody really understood which direction Colorado was going to take this season. For now, the Rockies are contenders and they'll look to knock off a Washington team that is 9-16 on the season.

After Washington dominated Colorado last night, can we expect the Rockies to bounce back in tonight's game? Here are our picks, predictions, and odds for Wednesday's game between the Washington Nationals and the Colorado Rockies.

Rockies vs. Nationals Line Movement

Colorado Rockies vs. Washington Nationals Prediction

The Washington Nationals will send out Patrick Corbin, who has an 8.69 ERA to start the season along with an 0-4 record. Corbin is a left-handed pitcher that has seen the ups and downs throughout his career.

This season, Corbin has a 5.33 xFIP with 13% walks. He's been a bit unlucky with a .443 BABIP but the unluckiness should continue knowing Corbin is going to be pitching in Colorado.

The Rockies won't have lefty-killer Kris Bryant but still, have a very good lineup against lefties. The projected lineup has a .397 wOBA and an ISO of .157. The Rockies' lineup also strikes out just 16.6% of the time and so far, when teams are putting the ball in play against Corbin, good things are happening.

On the other hand, Austin Gomber will take the hill for the Rockies. Gomber is going to face a Washington Nationals lineup that has a .068 ISO and wOBA of .278 against lefties this season. The Nationals have done well limiting strikeouts but ultimately, the top of the order between Cesar Hernandez, Juan Soto, Nelson Cruz, and Josh Bell are all hitting an abnormal amount of ground balls against lefties. When your best hitters are doing that, it's not a good look.

Gomber has a 4.44 xFIP with 23% striekouts. He's also inducing 45% ground balls and giving up just 20% line drives. He's looking good analytically and that should carry over into this game.

Grab the Rockies in the first five innings.
