Baseball Odds: Cardinals vs Rockies Betting Preview, Cardinals Looking for Separation in NL Central

  Rockies Hoping to Surprise Red Birds in the Mile High

Cardinals vs Rockies Betting Preview: Today’s Major League Baseball betting tip stops in Colorado where the St. Louis Cardinals are trying to put some distance between them and the Milwaukee Brewers in the National League Central Standings. The Cardinals trailed the Brewers by three games ten days ago but have made up four games over their last 10 to take a slim lead in the division. The oddsmakers have made the Cardinals a -164 consensus road favorite in the second of three games.

Game Information

Cardinals Crushed in Game One, 16-5, Look to Start New Streak

Our Cardinals vs Rockies betting preview clearly indicates that when player Jose Quintana gets the ball for the Cardinals it’s sure to turn into a bullpen game for Oliver Marmol’s team. Despite what all the MLB betting stats suggest, we can’t recommend laying a big price on the road with a pitcher who has just eight decisions in 21 starts.

Quintana has 96 strikeouts in 109 innings, a number that hints that the Rockies will have the ball in play at their hitter-friendly park. The Cardinals have beaten the Rockies in 48 of their last 71 meetings but a recent 1-4 slide at Coors Field indicates that Colorado and the plus money may be the best betting tip in this one.  Continuing our St. Louis Cardinals vs Colorado Rockies betting preview, let’s take a closer look at the Rocks.

Can Bettors Feel Secure With Inconsistent Rockies?

When a team puts up 16 runs against an opponent, MLB betting statistics show that bettors will go back the next day and load up again on that team with the thought that the bats are hot.

You’ll have a difficult time finding a reputable betting tip that’ll be on board with that line of thinking when Bud Black’s team is involved because the Rockies have been too inconsistent for bettors no matter what their previous results show.

Over the last month, Colorado has turned a profit for bettors (+130), but is just 12-15 in that span, sending most bettors home with a losing ticket more times than not.

A profitable team that owns a losing record is an indication to sharp bettors that this isn’t a team that they want their money on with any regularity. However, winning plus money bets is the key to a winning bankroll so let’s come up with a plan for the last two games of the series.

Cardinals, Rockies Leave One Clear Betting Option

To Conclude our Cardinals vs Rockies betting preview, let’s dive into the MLB betting tip today by formulating a plan to bet on the last two games of this series.

We know Colorado will be the underdog in the final two matchups in this series, giving us two chances to hit an underdog wager using a $100 wager as our example.

The plan is to wager on the Rockies twice over the next few days in hopes of cashing in on another plus money ticket. Tonight you’ll get back $138 on your wager giving you a nice profit if it hits. Even if it doesn’t we’ll go right back tomorrow and grab some more plus money even though a win will give us a much smaller take-back.

Get a win in game one and get off the series.  Lose in game one, go back for more tomorrow especially with the Cardinals eyeing their weekend match-up with the Milwaukee Brewers. That’s our Major League Baseball betting tip of the day.
