San Diego Padres vs. Colorado Rockies Gambling Prediction & MLB Preview

San Diego Padres (29-33) vs Colorado Rockies (33-30)

To me the San Diego Padres are one of the most counfounding teams out there. With the names they have on their roster they should probably be among the worst teams in the Majors but they are hanging in there at just below .500.

They took yesterday’s contest against Colorado and are looking to continue to close the gap against the team just ahead of them in the standings.

Coors Field – Denver, CO
4:10PM
Probable Pitchers:
SD: Clayton Richard
COL: Juan Nicasio
Moneyline: Colorado -160, San Diego +147
Over/Under: 11

San Diego

It looks like the National League West could be a five team race all season long. Wouldn’t that be fun to follow in September

Padres starter Clayton Richard has to be one of the least imposing big hurlers in the Majors. This season he has been getting just hammered with an ERA that is a staggering 8.38…yet they still keep giving him the ball. In more than half of his starts he has given up 5 runs or more which is a dangerous trend when playing at the Humidor.

There is a reason that the total is as high as it is while still looking very reachable. I don’t see how you can consider getting behind the Padres in this one.

Colorado

The Colorado Rockies have been spinning their wheels lately but their stronger than expected start has them in the division race. This series has been typical for Colorado as they won the opener when their bats came alive on Friday night but dropped yesterday’s game when the pitching on both sides decided to show up.

The Rockies have one of the best lineups in the Majors and are hard to bet against at home where their big bats like OF Carlos Gonzalez, SS Troy Tulowitzki and even OF Dexter Fowler really excel.

Bovada

Rockies starter Juan Nicasio is nothing special. You could even argue that maybe his greatest skill is to be able to give up runs and keep on trucking, an underrated quality if you are going to have any success pitching in Colorado. Nicasio has had more success against the Padres than any of the other teams in the N.L. West.

He has never lost to them (2-0) and his peripherals are better than against any others. He is primed to keep that success going as his opposite today is more than shaky and the Padres lineup nothing to fear.

Over/Under: Over
Score Prediction: Colorado 10 – San Diego 4

The Rockies are a great bet to win this contest but their just isn’t much value there so I am suggesting you take the over, even with the high total.

Richard is not going to fare very well against a Rockies lineup that can mash both lefties and righties and Nicasio rarely dominates or works late in games.

Put them together and I think this total is eclipsed by the 7th after which you can tally your fantasy points.
