The Colorado Rockies are gearing up for a matchup against the Arizona Diamondbacks in what should be a very intriguing matchup for gamblers. In fact, between the Diamondbacks coming in as the clear favorites, and some betters hoping for the Rockies to gain an upset win, a lot is going on with this one.
The Colorado Rockies are 3-2 in their last 5 games and 6-4 in their last 10 games. Although that seems like a promising record, especially in their last 10 matchups, it includes a shutout loss against the San Francisco Giants and a loss to the Phillies.
The team did manage to outscore their opponents 30-29, but that isn’t the best defensive showing in the last five games either. With that being said, the team has some impressive firepower led by an all-star cast of batters that can put points on the board.
The team has been led in their last 5 games by Ryan McMahon, who has 5 runs, 4 hits, and 5 RBI’s. They also have Raimel Tapia, who has 3 runs, 3 hits, and 3 RBI’s in 8 showings at the plate.
Believe it or not, the combination of Raimel Tapia and Ryan McMahon might not even be enough to knock off the white-hot Arizona Diamondbacks right now.
As for the Arizona Diamondbacks, they are 4-1 in their last 5 games and 7-3 in their last 10 games. If that wasn’t impressive enough, the Diamondbacks also outscored their opponents 35-17.
Furthermore, 12 of those 17 points were from a close game against the Cincinnati Reds, making them a better defensive team than they look. If you remove that game against the Reds from the equation, however, the Diamondbacks have only allowed 6 runs during that 5 game stretch.
If nothing else, that makes the Diamondbacks the better team here and it’s going to be very difficult for the Rockies to notch a win here. Think about it! Between the Diamondback’s high-powered offense and practically unbreakable defense, this game doesn’t leave much to be imagined.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Arizona is 7-1 SU in their last 8 games.
- Arizona is 4-1 SU in their last 5 games this season.
Free Colorado Rockies vs Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
There just isn’t any factor that seems to point to a victory for the Colorado Rockies here. They just don’t have the kind of offense that can hang with the Diamondbacks.
If we were to single out one weakness for the Diamondbacks, it would be starting pitcher, Luke Weaver, who is 1-2 in his 3 starts and has given up an ERA of 4.57. He does also have 19 strikeouts in his 3 starts, making him a pretty solid pitcher, but the runs he gives up leaves a lot to be desired.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Diamondbacks straight up
Again, there just don’t seem to be any factors that stand in the Colorado Rockies’ favor. Sure, they seem to have a decently powered offense, but one could argue that they have scored against much lower quality opponents.
Finally, the Diamondbacks are riding a wave of momentum that most teams can only dream of, making them the more solid pick by a country mile If you want to bet the total, go with the under and cash in on the Rockies unstoppable defense and pitching.
As for the spread, you are going to want to go with Diamondbacks on the Moneyline and avoid the Rockies at all costs if possible. They are just arent a team to believe in right now.
