MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
The Houston Astros have been surprisingly bad so far here in 2021, but they do get the opportunity to show off their bats and climb back to .500 as they matchup with the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field this Tuesday night.
It is a bit tough to really put your finger on exactly why the Astros have been so brutal lately, but the fact of the matter is that this team has only won one of their last 8 games and it is not like they were playing incredible competition either.
The pitching has been decent so far, but the batting has been great, so really would have expected them to come into this game with a winning record simply based off of the stats they have so far.
Things will get no easier for the Astros in this spot either, as the Colorado Rockies are way better at home then on the road and the Houston Astros have essentially lost half their team with guys needing to enter the MLB’s protocol.
Alvarez, Altuve, Garcia, Maldonado and Bregman will all be out due to contact tracing procedures and needless to say that those losses are going to effect this batting lineup in a big way, as their disastrous start to the season continues.
The Colorado Rockies are not likely to be big time contenders this year, but I do like their chances of having a respectable record at home, as they have always looked way more comfortable in the confines of Coors Field.
The pitching has not been amazing and neither has the batting so far this year, but one guy starting off the season real well is Ryan McMahon who has 6 home runs already and a very respectable .278 batting average.
The big problem for the Rockies though, has been getting on base, as they are one of the worst teams in all of baseball in getting guys on base and the fact that McMahon has only knocked in 10 RBI off of his 6 home runs clearly show just how bad of a situation it is in mile high.
Free Houston Astros vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
The Rockies are always better at home and the fact that the Astros are essentially missing half their batting lineup makes me love the Rockies at this price and think they can get the job done here outright.
Jon Gray is also getting the start here and he has been solid so far with a 2.87 ERA and a 1-1 record and I think this represents a perfect opportunity for him to put in a quality start against what is left of the Astros.
Charlie Blackmon has been very slow to start this season with a .191 average and only one home run and I would look for him to come alive in this series, as it seem like the perfect opponent and environment for him to get his season back on track.
