Rockies Betting Preview

The Rockies have had a very disappointing start to the season and coming into this game they sit with a 5-10 record overall. On Saturday the Rockies pitching was again awful giving up nine runs on the way to the defeat. So far this series the Rockies have scored only five runs total, and althoug the pitching needs to be better, the offense also needs to get better. The Rockies offense overall is averaging only 4.2 runs per game. The pitching is also ranked 27th in all of baseball. 

Mariners Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is the Mariners who sit with a 7-8 record overall. The Mariners got out to a slow start, but maybe all they needed was a series against the Rockies to turn their season around. On Saturday Julio Rodriguez was the star of the show finishing with one hit, one run, and four RBIs. On the mound for the Mariners will be Luis Castillo who sits with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 1.02. In his last start against the Cubs he went six innings giving up six hits and two runs.

Shane’s Free Pick

The Rockies have struggled to start the series and it’s going to be no different in this game. Castillo sits with an ERA of 1.02 and the Rockies bats are going to be ice cold again in this game. The Mariners will score five or six runs, and that will be enough to get the job done. Back the Mariners -1.5.

Shane’s Pick Mariners -1.5
