The Colorado Rockies head to Chicago to battle the Cubs in the first of a three-game NL series Monday night from Wrigley Field.
Rafael Ortega hit a 2-run walk-off homer to snap the Cubs 13 game losing streak at Wrigley Field with a 6-4 win over the Rockies on Monday night.
Tuesday’s game was postponed due to weather and will take place in the 2nd game of a doubleheader on Wednesday.
Colorado has played great as of late, winning 5 of their last 6 games including a sweep over the San Diego Padres.
The Rockies sit at 57-67, which is 23 games back for the division lead so their hopes hang on the final wild card spot which they’re 10.5 games behind.
Watch for CJ Cron, one of the hottest players in all of baseball, accumulating a remarkable 28 RBI’s accompanied by a 1.3 OPS in August. The veteran first baseman is up to 21 homers, 71 RBI’s, and a terrific .889 OPS.
The Rockies stand 15th in the big leagues with 4.55 runs on the season. The pitching staff enters with a 4.70 team ERA, landing them 23rd overall.
There really is not much to be said about the Cubs at this point, as they essentially sold everyone at the trade deadline in order to invest in the future which was probably a smart move long term, but they have a brutal roster as it stands right now.
The Cubs’ terrible slump at the plate continues. They have now lost a whopping 15 out of their last 17 games overall. They were able to win 2 of 3 against a good Reds team before they were swept by the Royals on the weekend.
Rafael Ortega continues to shine at the plate, registering a .328 average on the month. The 30-year old has been one of the few bright spots these days for a struggling team.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Rockies are 57-68 overall
- Rockies are 14-46 on the road
- Cubs are 55-72 overall
- Cubs are 32-31 at home
Free Colorado Rockies vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
With the way that these two teams have been trending over the second half, it’s hard not to like the Rockies in this spot. Colorado has been one of the sub-.500 teams that have really turned the corner since the All-Star Break.
The nightcap will feature a pair of southpaws on the mound which leans in favor of the Rockies as the Cubs have not done well against lefties.
Look for Colorado to bounce back on Wednesday.
