Colorado Feels Wild Card Heat Internet Sport Betting

December 1, 2010 Sports Betting

Internet sport betting has the Colorado Rockies feeling the heat in the National League Wild Card race.

Most offshore sports betting people thought the Rockies would have no trouble wrapping up the spot in the National League but that has not been the case. Internet sport betting had the Rockies losing on Thursday to San Diego to narrow their lead over Atlanta to 3.5 games. ”We control our destiny still,” shortstop Troy Tulowitzki said, ”I think we’re in a good spot.” The Giants and Marlins are four back but the Braves seem to have the best chance with six games remaining against the Washington Nationals.

The Rockies have to play three this weekend against the National League Central leading St. Louis Cardinals in offshore sports betting odds. It could be a playoff preview with Internet sport betting if the Rockies hold on and win the Wild Card. The Internet sport betting series should also be interesting as it features the return of Matt Holliday to Colorado.

The Cardinals could clinch the National League Central in this series and the pitching edges seem to go their way in Internet sport betting with Chris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright scheduled to go. The Rockies though are worried about making the playoffs so they will be ready for the home series in Internet sport betting.

The Rockies are still in prime position to make the playoffs since they control their own destiny. The Braves would probably have to go 9-1 the rest of the way and even then Colorado could clinch by winning six of their last nine. Colorado manager Jim Tracy has done a great job this season for the Rockies since taking over and he is not concerned that the team has lost seven of their last eleven as offshore sports betting results show. ”The mathematics are totally in our favor,” he said. ”If we can win a few baseball games, we’re going to make it.”

Tracy’s confidence is well founded but the Rockies do need to start winning some games or the Braves will start to believe they have a real chance of pulling off a miracle. Atlanta is favored in offshore sports betting at the sportsbook in Washington this weekend as they face the Nationals while the Cardinals are likely to be underdogs at least a couple of times at the sports book in their Internet sport betting series with St. Louis.
