The Colorado Rockies will host the St. Louis Cardinals for their series finale this Wednesday from Coors Field. St. Louis took game two last night after scoring three times in the ninth, 9-6.
Cardinals Betting Preview
St. Louis comes in at 4-7 after defeating Colorado last night. The Cardinals avoided a three-game skid, and they’ll look to close strong here before hosting the Pirates this weekend. The St. Louis offense is 4.45 scoring runs per game, while batting .286, with a .358 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.06 ERA, with a 1.46 WHIP. Nolan Arenado provided three RBI last nite to bring his team lead to 11. Paul Goldschmidt leads the Cards in batting (.350), and he’s recorded multiple RBI in both games at Coors.
Jack Flaherty (1-1, 1.80 ERA, 7 Ks) will start for St. Louis. The sixth-year pitcher struggled a bit with Milwaukee last week, walking six batters in five innings to earn the losing decision. Flaherty walked seven batters in his season debut, so that may be something to keep watch of props wise.
Rockies Betting Preview
Colorado fell to 5-7 following the loss to Miami. The Rockies let the game slip away from them late, and they face an uphill battle today. The Colorado offense is scoring 4.5 runs per game, while batting .275, with a .322 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.28 ERA, with a 1.46 WHIP. Charlie Blackmon has recorded a hit in four straight games, and he leads the Rockies in batting average (.317). C.J. Cron hit his second homer of the season last night, and he’s tied for the team lead in RBI (8) with Ryan McMahon.
Jose Urena (0-2, 14.40 ERA, 1 K) will get the call for Colorado. The ninth-year pitcher has been blown up quickly in both of his starts, failing to surpass the third inning and allowing four runs in each outing. Urena is vulnerable and should be targeted until he shows some resistance.
St. Louis vs Colorado Trends
St. Louis is 5-6 against the spread this season, with a 4-7 over/under record. Colorado is 3-9 ATS this year, with a 7-5 O/U record.
Corey's Free Pick
The total on this game is absurd, but with a walk-happy Jack Flaherty and a vulnerable Jose Urena headed to the mound at the hitter-friendly Coors Field, it is indeed within reach. To avoid the tricky number, I like leaning on the high-powered Cards again here. Unless Urena rebounds, they should be able to have their way at the plate and leave Denver with a pair of victories. Back the Cards here.
