The Colorado Rockies may seem like weird favorites going on the road to PNC Park to face the Pirates on Tuesday. The value should probably be on Pittsburgh in this one as Clint Hurdle’s team has won 3 in a row.
The Rockies have a day off to think about a 3 game sweep by the Phillies over the weekend that was preceded by 5-6 loss to Boston last Wednesday. Colorado has now lost 4 in a row and has dipped to last in the NL West, 9.5 GB from the Dodgers.
Colorado will be on the road Tuesday for the 6th straight game. The Rockies are just 11-14 away from Coors Field on the season. The Rockies have a top 10 scoring offense which is partially due to playing in Denver, but they have hit just .239 in 46 AB vs. Pirates starter Chris Archer.
7 of the last 10 Colorado games have gone ‘over’ the total, which is set at just 8 on Tuesday. The reason that number may seem a bit on the low side is because Rockies starter German Marquez has the 6th lowest road ERA in the NL at just 2.55.
The Pirates may seem like strange +102 home underdogs on Tuesday considering they are playing their 1st home game in nearly two weeks. Pittsburgh is 9-9 at PNC Park on the season.
Another reason Pittsburgh will draw some heavy public action in this tilt is because they come into the contest having won 3 in a row at San Diego and also took 3 of 4 at St. Louis earlier in the road trip.
Chris Archer is definitely rested heading into Tuesday’s game but that’s because he went just 3.2 innings last time out vs. the Diamondbacks. The right-hander spent time on the IL before that but has allowed 6 ER in each of his last two 7.2IP.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Rockies are 0-4 last 4 road games
- Rockies are 5-2 in Marquez’s last 7 starts
- Pirates are 7-3 last 10 overall
- Pirates are 0-4 in Archer’s last 4 starts
Free Colorado Rockies vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction:
Archer should be better in this one as he’s struggled the last two but both were on the road. The Pirates haven’t been home in awhile and will look to get back to their winning ways in front of the PNC Park crowd.
