Rockies to Start 10-Game Road Trip Against New York
Colorado is fresh off a 16-4 beatdown at the hands of the Texas Rangers, Wednesday, and then flew to New York to face the rested Mets. Bud Blacks’ team has always had issues winning away from home but facing deGrom tonight gives them an added layer of worry.
Their home-road splits have always been a concern to bettors with 2022 being no exception. At Coors, Colorado is 36-32 (+806 units), but away from home, they’re almost an automatic go-against with an 18-39 record, losing bettors 1321 units.
They own the worst road record in the National League this season, adding to their 919-1406 record away from the Mile High city since 1993. Since 2014, Rockies bettors are 551-832 (.398) -12,026 units. Until that changes, we’ll likely never see Colorado Rockies World Series odds improve. Let’s continue our Rockies vs Mets series preview with a look at the New York Mets.
Mets May Overlook Rockies after Series With Yanks
The New York Mets betting odds are too high for our bankroll and usually, you never want Colorado on a ticket, especially on the road. If there is one betting angle you could make a case for it’s that this may be a situation where you might be able to grab one of these huge plus money + chances with the Rockies. New York may be more focused on the series they just had with the New York Yankees or the one coming up against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Mets will face Rockies right-hander MLB player Ryan Feltner as they try to hold off the Braves in the National League East. deGrom will be making just his fifth start after missing 13 months due to elbow and shoulder injuries. The former Stetson star is 5-1 with a 1.17 career ERA in nine starts against the Rockies.
Public Putting Faith Behind New York and Over
Believe it or not, the New York Mets odds are getting a ton of action from the public. Both tickets and money wagered are on Buck Showalter’s team, pushing the number up from its send-out number of -240. The public is betting on the over with the thought that New York will be able to get to Feltner for enough runs to perhaps cover the total by themselves.
The former Ohio State Buckeye owns a career 6.43 ERA which boosts the thinking of the pros and cons. To conclude our Rockies, Mets series preview it must be pointed out that teams coming off a long road trip find themselves in need of a few days to crank the offense back up.
The Rockies are a long way from cashing a World Series odds wager but should give us just enough starting pitching to put money in our bankroll. Take the under seven (-107) in game one of this four-game series.
