Why bet on the Colorado Rockies?
The Colorado Rockies (16-13) lost some ground in the division standings after their 8-5 loss to the San Francisco Giants Monday and have lost back-to-back games for the first time in the month of May. However, the Rockies should still take this loss in stride with how they almost staged a huge comeback in San Fran.
Colorado scored three of its five runs in the ninth inning to come within striking distance of sending the game to extra innings before Giants closer Jake McGee composed himself to seal the win for the home team. Jose Iglesias and Connor Joe each had three hits apiece while Yonathan Daza drove in two runs, but cleanup batter C.J. Cron saw his six-game hit streak come to an end and went 0-of-4 for the evening.
Antonio Senzatela (2-1, 3.75 ERA) is projected to take the mound for the Rockies in Tuesday’s rematch and is hoping to avoid a similar fate as fellow starter Austin Gomber on Monday (five runs allowed in 5.1 innings). Senzatela has surrendered seven or more hits to opponents in each of his five starts this season but has only allowed more than three runs in one of those five starts.
Why bet on the San Francisco Giants?
With their five-game losing streak in the rearview mirror, the San Francisco Giants have put together a new three-game win streak following their victory over the Rockies on Monday. They keep pace with the rest of their rivals in the division race out in the crowded NL West where all five teams have winning records and are no more than five games apart from the current division leader in the Los Angeles Dodgers at 19-8.
The bats are coming alive once again for San Francisco, which is averaging 8.3 runs over its current three-game win streak. Centerfielder Mauricio Dubon has reached base in each of those three victories and drove in five runs with one homer during this stretch. Darin Ruf also has a six-game hitting streak going for himself and has four two-RBI performances over the last four games.
Veteran starter Alex Wood (2-2, 4.38 ERA) will counter Colorado’s Senzatela this Tuesday and is looking to get over his two straight starts with losing decisions. Although Wood has a total of 26 strikeouts for the season already (seven Ks against the Dodgers in his most recent start), he’s lasted no more than 5.1 innings in each of his five starts whilst also giving up no fewer than four hits per contest.
Rockies vs. Giants MLB Betting Trends
- The Rockies are 1-8 in the last nine road games.
- The Rockies have now lost eight straight meetings against the Giants.
- The totals went under in three of the last four games between Colorado and San Francisco.
- The Giants are 4-5 over the last nine home games.
- The Giants are currently 3-3 against their NL West rivals.
- The totals went over in six of San Fran’s last eight games played in Oracle Park.
Rockies vs. Giants Betting Prediction
There’s no denying that San Francisco has superior momentum compared to Colorado as we speak. However, the NL West has been a hostile ground for unpredictability given how well all five teams are playing thus far this season to give the road underdogs a fighting chance. The Giants aren’t exactly dominating opponents at home, either, and Wood is an imposing yet beatable arm that the Rockies could very well decipher this Tuesday.
