Bet on the MLBBaseball betting Wednesday offers the San Francisco Giants a final sports betting opportunity to get back into the National League wild card race against Colorado. Baseball betting on the Giants has gone poorly as of late while the Colorado Rockies are closing in on a spot in the National League sports betting post season.
The scheduled probable starting pitchers for this baseball betting showdown are left hander Jorge De La Rosa of the Rockies and right hander Matt Cain of the Giants. De La Rosa has a sports betting record of 14-9 with a 4.37 earned run average. In his last 3 starts he went 2-0 with a 1.50 earned run average. He has excelled against the MLB betting odds in his career against the Giants with a mark of 5-0 and a 3.35 earned run average.
Cain has a baseball betting record of 13-5 with a 2.61 earned run average. In his last 3 baseball betting appearances he was less sharp as he went 1-1 with a 4.74 earned run average. In his baseball betting career against the Rockies he was 8-5 with a 3.16 earned run average.
The Colorado Rockies won 8 out of 9 games from September 4 through September 12 to take firm control of the wild card spot and close within 3 games of the Los Angeles Dodgers for the top spot in the National league west division. The Rockies have emerged as one of the most balanced teams in all of baseball betting as they ranked 6th overall in run production and 7th overall in staff earned run average. Todd Helton has led the Rockies baseball betting resurgence with a .322 batting average and 35 doubles, 66 runs scored, 78 runs batted in along with 73 walks. Troy Tulowitzki led Colorado in homers with 25. Colorado was 37-34 on the road this year with just 27 out of those 71 games going over the baseball betting total.
The Giants have been tough at home with a record of 45-25 but lost 6 out of 9 games from September 3 through September 12. Offensive production has killed off the Giants as they ranked a dismal 29th overall for runs scored.
Bet on the MLBGamblers might feel compelled to place their baseball bets on San Francisco. Rival evaluators who scouted the Giants’ offensive work during spring training all left thinking the same thing; pitchers from opposing teams will have to dig deep. Similar to the Kansas City Royals of the previous two years, the Giants are not known for striking out too often.
