MLB betting on Saturday includes the second game of a three-game Interleague matchup between the Seattle Mariners and Colorado Rockies.
The Rockies are normally favored at home in bet on MLB odds at the sportsbook and should be a small favorite in this matchup.
MLB betting information does show that Erik Bedard could get the start in this game for Seattle. If that is the case then Seattle has a shot in this MLB betting matchup. Bedard is 5-2 on the season with a 2.47 ERA as MLB betting numbers tell us. He has pitched once previously against Colorado and lost but had a good outing. MLB betting stats show that he is 0-1 with a 3.60 ERA in his career against the Rockies.
MLB betting trends tell us that the teams have split their last 10 meetings. Since these teams are in different leagues those games go back to 2000. The Mariners won two of three at Colorado back in 2001. The two teams have not met at Coors Field since. They did play in 2006 in Seattle and the Rockies won two of three.
Looking at the MLB betting total at the sportsbook we see that two of the three games at Colorado between the two teams in 2001 went under. The Mariners have had a pitching staff that ranks in the Top 5 in the league as MLB betting stats show so this matchup could go under the total. Seattle also has one of the worst offenses in baseball as bet on MLB statistics tell us. The Mariners have been right near the bottom of the league all season in runs scored. Seattle is below .500 on the road but they have been competitive and could win this MLB betting matchup at Colorado.
The Rockies have surprisingly been very poor at home this season in MLB betting. Colorado has been a losing team at home, mainly because of a pitching staff that ranks in the bottom third of the league as bet on MLB stats show. The Rockies offense has been decent but considering they play at Coors Field, ranking in the Top 10 is not enough. They should be in the Top 3 and they are not. They really have missed Matt Holliday who went to Oakland in the off-season.
