A trend is forming in this Rockies vs Padres series preview, going against the Rockies at Petco Park is a safe wager after a doubleheader sweep last night. It was their 6th defeat in eight games in San Diego. Oddly enough, at Coors Field, Colorado has won nine of ten. Let’s see if we can find a safe way to get action down on tonight’s game three of five.
- MLB Matchup: Colorado Rockies (46-60) at San Diego Padres (60-46)
- Location: Petco Park, San Diego, California
- Television: ATTR, BSSD, MLBN
Colorado Huge Road ‘Dogs
There’s no way that we’re recommending getting involved on the side. The Rockies vs Padres series preview has opened -310 with online bookmakers, which is a clear indication that our bankroll doesn’t want anything to do with either of these MLB teams.
The Rockies may look like an enticing plus money wager, but the truth is, betting odds Colorado in hopes of cashing a big payday is reckless, especially with MLB player Kris Bryant’s foot injury that will keep him out indefinitely according to the Major League Baseball injury list.
Colorado has been thought of as an automatic over wager but this season it’s the Rockies under that has been cashing wagers (49-52-5). Their lack of power and speed has helped under bettors cash out even when at Coors. As we continue our Rockies, Padres Preview let’s see how the acquisition of Juan Soto and Josh Bell affects tonight’s wager.
Padres Get Not One but Two Big Fish at Deadline
San Diego came out the big winners at the deadline with the acquisition of two heavy hitters in Juan Soto and Josh Bell. We are in some limbo as to when they both will be in the line-up and how the books will adjust when they are.
Tonight’s total of eight seems to be enticing bettors to jump on the over (-120). We suggest being careful when San Diego Padres betting totals until both players have settled into a lineup that will also add Fernando Tatis Jr in late August when he comes off the MLB injury report.
The side will likely be too much for our bankroll at home unless they’re playing the elite of the league. With Bell and Soto likely to play tonight along with Brandon Drury who also was part of what could be known as statement day in San Diego, you would think this number would be higher. Let’s conclude our Rockies, Padres preview with the best plan of attack.
Bookmakers Laying a Trap?
Any experienced bettor will tell you that this smells like a trap and we’re going to take full advantage. Normally, you would think that with the addition of Soto, and Bell, the number would jump up some – especially after a doubleheader that featured 23 total runs. So, what are the numbers with Rockies vs Padres Series preview?
You have two pitchers, Chad Kuhl for the Rockies and Blake Snell for the Padres who have ERA’s around the 4.50, but Kuhl has turned into the Rockies ace with a 3-0 record over his last five starts while giving up two or fewer runs in four of his last five outings. In that span, he owns a 2.81 era with 40’s in 25.2 innings.
The play here is under because Kuhl’s recent success is worth riding until he turns back into the pitcher that struggled to begin the season. Don’t be fooled for the big names and the over until they’ve settled into the line-up some.
