Following two consecutive losing seasons another slow start from the San Francisco Giants had gamblers turned off. Definitely there is a baseball odds today attitude of “wait and see” in regards to the Giants. In the same way did the Colorado Rockies stumble out of the game. After consecutive playoff seasons expectations are much higher in the Mile High City than in the past. Yet there is also a fair amount of skepticism about the Rockies long term prospects for the 2019 season. Despite the fact Colorado is a past playoff team many avoid going “all in” with them.

Now Colorado has stumbled badly out of the gate with nine losses in their first 12 games. Only five of their games went over the total. In a similar way the Rockies lost nine of their last ten. Six of their last nine went under the number. Of great concern is the fact that the Rockies were bad in all aspects of the game. Colorado ranks 26th for run production and home runs. Correspondingly the Rockies rank 22nd for staff earned run average and 22nd for WHIP.
Meanwhile the Giants have also fallen flat to start the year. San Francisco lost five of their last seven games with only one of their last six staying under the number. Run production has been the main culprit for the Giants. To illustrate SFO ranks 27th for runs scored, 26th for batting average, 29th for OPS and 28th for home runs. Compared to those dreary numbers is a pitching staff ranked seventh for earned run average.
Colorado has dropped as a baseball odds today value in recent road games. As an example, the Rockies have dropped six of their last nine away matchups. Only three of their last 16 road tilts went over the total. In the same way has San Francisco gushed red ink as a home team. Giants backers have had losing tickets in 12 of their last 16 home games. Only two of San Francisco’s last seven home games cleared the total.
Late on Colorado has had the sports betting edge with San Francisco in this head to head series. In the last 10 meetings between these teams the Rockies got the money eight times. And 10 of the last 12 between the Rockies and Giants went under the total. By contrast San Francisco has been most profitable at home against Colorado. A total of 11 payouts in 15 home games against the Rockies have made gamblers happy. These teams went under the total in five of their last six at Oracle Park.
Matchup to Watch
On this occasion Colorado’s Kyle Freeland is scheduled to start against San Francisco’s Madison Bumgarner. Freeland has not been a baseball odds today asset thus far with a 5.40 earned run average. Contrarily Bumgarner was off to a much better start at 3.32. Further help has come from Brandon Bell’s three home runs for the Giants.
