Free Baseball Predictions: Colorado Rockies vs. Philadelphia Phillies Preview

Rockies vs Phillies MLB Betting + Handicapping Picks

Starting pitcher Cole Hamels has been on the downturn much like the rest of the Phillies, winning just one of his last three starts.

However, he and his teammates will look to turn things around when they host the slumping Colorado Rockies in the opener of a three-game set on Tuesday.

COL: Josh Outman (0-2, 8.44) v PHI: Cole Hamels (9-3, 3.34)
Date/Time: Tuesday, June 19, 7:05 PM ET
Venue: Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Broadcast: Rot Sports-Rocky Mountain (Colorado), WB17 (Philadelphia)
Spread: Phillies -225
Over/Under: 8 (-105)

However, it won’ be a cakewalk for Philly, as they are an awful 12-19 at Citizens Bank Park this season — a National League worst.

Meanwhile, the Rockies arrive in the City of Brotherly Love, losers of two straight and 10 of their last 11.

Nothing has gone right for Colorado so far this season, and now the team is scheduled to play 20 straight days leading to the All-Star break, and 13 of those games will be on the road, where the Rockies are 10-19.
To make matters worse, they have just a single series wins at Citizens Bank Park since its opening in 2004.

That year the Rockies took three of four there from the Phillies, but the Rockies have since split four series and lost three while compiling a regular-season record of 10-16 in Philadelphia.
They will hope that Josh Outman can reverse history when he takes the mound in Game 1.


The 27-year-old righty made his third start of the season on Wednesday night against his former team — the A’s, allowing five runs on six hits over five frames. He left in poised for a win, but the Rox bullpen blew it, and he ended up with a no-decision.

Outman has gone 0-1 with a 7.94 ERA in his first three starts with a 10-to-4 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 11 1/3 innings.

Starting opposite of Outman, will be Hamels, who before his current cold spell, reeled off eight straight wins.

The 28-year old southpaw received a lot of run support in a 9-8 win in Minnesota on Wednesday, but the Twins chip away in the closing innings, allowing the Twins to score once in the sixth and three more times in the seventh.

Matt’s Free Prediction: Philadelphia– Hamels has been lights out. If he can go at least seven in this one, the Phils when this one handily.
