Baseball betting has quite a bit in store for the Colorado Rockies as they take on the San Diego Padres in a National League West matchup on Saturday.
This is the second game of this bet on baseball series between the two teams. Here is a look at the Rockies and Padres matchup for Saturday.
Baseball betting has the Rockies playing the second game of a 9-game road trip. If you think that Colorado can’t win on the road in baseball betting you might want to reconsider that opinion. The Rockies actually have a winning record in baseball betting on the road this season. Colorado can score some runs with a lineup led by Troy Tulowitzki and Todd Helton. The pitching staff is always capable of shutting down teams, especially Ubaldo Jimenez who leads the team in ERA.
Before this series began in baseball betting, the Rockies had split their last ten games at San Diego. This season though in baseball betting the Rockies were 4-2 in the six previous meeting in San Diego.
The Rockies have moved into rare territory when it comes to baseball betting stats. Very few teams are in the Top 10 in both runs scored and fewest runs allowed as online betting statistics in baseball show. Colorado has been in the Top 10 in runs scored pretty much all season as baseball betting stats show but now their pitching has moved into the Top 10 as well. That points to Colorado making the playoffs if those baseball betting numbers continue. The Rockies are even in the hunt for the National League West division crown even though the Dodgers still have the lead.
San Diego has been pretty miserable this season in baseball betting but at least at home they are competitive. In fact, they have a winning record in bet on baseball at home this season. The Padres simply can’t score any runs and that is with Adrian Gonzalez. Think how bad they would be offensively in baseball betting if they didn’t have Gonzalez. At least at home the Padres have proven to be a decent wager since many times they are getting plus money at the online sportsbook.
