MLB Baseball Betting Action – Phillies Take on Rockies
I really went out on a limb in the Top Sportsbooks Locker Room on Tuesday, predicting the Philadelphia Phillies’ (30-24, 24-30 RL) 7-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies, (20-32, 19-33 RL) in last night’s sports betting matchup, which Philadelphia easily won 7-4. It’s like predicting Big Brown to show in the 2008 Belmont Stakes.
Okay, okay, I’m just kidding about yesterday’s prediction since a blind man can see that Phillies are on an offensive roll that hasn’t been seen in either league so far this season.
After scoring 42 runs over the past three games in the Our best Sportsbooks, the Phillies and their imposing batting order enter tonight’s baseball betting series finale against the Rockies looking to complete a three-game online betting sweep over the team that beat them in last season’s NLCS, denying them a trip to the World Series.
“They have a good offensive club,” said Rockies manager Clint Hurdle.
Chase Utley has hit two homers and driven in 10 runs during the last three games while third baseman Pedro Feliz has gone 7-for-15 with seven RBIs and is batting a scorching .457 (16-for-35) during an eight-game hitting streak.
Reigning NL MVP shortstop Jimmy ‘J-Roll’ Rollins has hit .365 in the last 14 games, stealing six bases and scoring 11 runs while outfielder Shane Victorino has recorded a hit in nine consecutive games while going a robust 16-for-39 (.410) with 11 runs and four steals.
2006 NL MVP Ryan Howard is also starting to heat up for the Phillies, bopping eight home runs while driving in 20 runs over the last 16 games while batting .295.
The Rockies, losers of five of their last seven games overall, will turn to talented young right-hander, Greg Reynolds (0-1, 4.08 ERA), the second overall pick in the 2006 draft who will be making just his fourth major league start.
Reynolds limited the struggling New York Mets to one run on two hits in five innings before allowing two home runs in the sixth, while giving up just four runs total in Colorado’s 6-5 extra innings win on Friday.
The Phillies are hoping mediocre veteran starter Adam Eaton (0-3, 5.37 ERA), can pick up just his second victory in his last 21 starts. Eaton allowed three runs on eight hits in seven innings of a 4-3 road defeat to the Houston Astros on Friday.
Here is a look at tonight’s key trends followed by my MLB Betting Picks.
The Rockies are 0-7 in their last seven road games vs. a team with a winning home record.
The Rockies are 0-4 in their last four road games vs. a right-handed starter.
The Phillies are 2-5 in Eaton’s last seven starts as a home favorite.
The Phillies are 0-4 in Eaton’s last four starts.
The Under is 4-0 in Rockies last four Wednesday games.
The Under is 4-0-1 in Eaton’s last five starts with the total set at 9.0-10.5.
The Over is 4-1 in the last five meetings.
The Over is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Philadelphia.
Analysis: I know Philly’s Adam Eaton takes the definition of the word mediocre to a whole new level and that the Rockies’ young starter is very talented, but I’m going with the red-hot Phillies to help Eaton get a big win in this contest while the Phillies come through in the later innings with their big bats.
