MLB odds favor the Colorado Rockies as they host the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday. This is the one National League series this weekend since all of the other teams are playing Interleague games.
MLB betting odds point to the Rockies in this series, as do the trends. MLB odds trends tell us that the Rockies have won 7 of the last 10 home games against the Pirates. Last season the teams played a four game series in Colorado and the Rockies swept the Pirates in MLB odds. None of the games were really even close as the Rockies won 11-3, 7-1, 5-2 and 5-3. Three of those four games went under the MLB odds total.
The Pirates have been better at home this season than on the road. The Pirates simply don’t have enough offense or a strong enough pitching staff to win consistently on the road versus the MLB odds. The Pirates have been about 20th in runs scored as MLB odds stats tell us while their pitching is slightly better at about 15th. Those numbers are not going to get Pittsburgh anywhere but they are good enough that sports betting gamblers can’t automatically go against the Pirates on a regular basis.
Colorado has been surprisingly weak at home this season versus the MLB odds. That was a major reason why manager Clint Hurdle was fired and replaced by Jim Tracy. The Rockies have to win at home and so far this season they have been a bust at home versus the MLB odds. Their offense has been decent, ranking in the Top 10 in MLB odds but their pitching has struggled, ranking in the bottom third in the league.
Betting the MLB odds under when the Pirates and Rockies play in Colorado has been the way to go recently. 7 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams in Colorado have gone under the MLB betting odds. It used to be that taking the Rockies over at home was the way to go but that has not been the case in recent seasons versus the MLB betting odds. This year though, the Rockies have reverted back to scoring a lot of runs at home and going over the MLB odds.
