Baseball Betting Preview: Rockies vs. Angels

Baseball betting is full of interesting and intriguing traditional match ups.

One of the major innovations in bet on baseball opportunities over the years has been the creation of inter-league competitions. One of the more eye-catching inter-league baseball betting match ups on the sportsbook horizon involves the Colorado Rockies and the LA Angels.

Baseball betting fans will be treated to great inter league action on June 22nd when the Colorado Rockies travel to the City of Angels for a series against… the Angels. A month ago this bet on baseball opportunity wouldn't have interested anyone or drawn much response on the sportsbook sites. However, the Rockies are currently the hottest team in baseball betting and it seems to take every bit of a miracle to beat them in the bet on baseball match ups.

In fact, the Rockies are the surest thing in baseball betting right now. Since changing managers this team has gone 13-1 in its bet on baseball opportunities. The biggest change on the field has been a slashing of the earned runs allowed by the bullpen which has greatly enhanced this team's standings.

Against the Angels Colorado will likely send Aaron Cook to the mound, one of the team's most effective starters. With a 6-3 record he's been able to pile baseball betting wins with effective, but not dominating performances (4.23 ERA, 42 Ks). The Angels should be able to get him, but they'll need to up a lot of runs to beat the best team in baseball betting.

Colorado has also had the bats working with long time mainstay Todd Helton swinging the stick well. But the real surprise here has been Brad Hawpe who's having a break out season (.335 BA, 47 RBIs, and 9 HR) and is one of the main reasons for the team's baseball betting success. 

LA has been upstaged this year by the division rival Rangers. But they've gained ground and are within a game and a half of the baseball betting division leader. They've also been on a baseball betting tear and are 7-3 over their last 10 games. They will be more than aware of the Rockies hot streak and likely use it as motivation when the team's meet up in this bet on baseball duel.

LA will have struggling Ervin Santana on the mound. He's had a very disappointing season and could get easily touched by the Rockies hitters in this baseball betting match up. If you're looking to put some money on this game go with the momentum and take Colorado in this baseball betting duel.
