Reds Betting Preview
Cincinnati moved to 18-23 after falling to Colorado. The Reds came very close last night, and they’ll look to complete the mission this time around. The Cincinnati offense is scoring 3.78 runs per game, while batting .244, with a .324 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.22 ERA, with a 1.50 WHIP. Jonathan India has scored in three straight games, and he leads Cincy in hits (45) and runs scored (31). Jake Fraley has recorded an RBI in five of the last six games, and he’s first in the team in RBI (28).
Brandon Williamson (0-0, 0.00 ERA) will get the call for Cincinnati. This will mark the rookie pitcher’s first appearance in the majors, and he may have a tough time at the most hitter-friendly stadium in the league.
Rockies Betting Preview
Colorado moved to 18-24 after defeating Cincinnati. The Rockies have won nine of thirteen this month, and they face another winnable contest Tuesday. The Colorado offense is scoring 4.5 runs per game, while batting .257, with a .311 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.34 ERA, with a 1.50 WHIP. Elias Diaz has a hit in six of the last seven games, and he leads the Rockies in batting (.328). Charlie Blackmon produced a pair of RBI in the game one win, while Randal Grichuk has recorded a hit in each of his first twelve appearances.
Chase Anderson (0-0, 0.00 ERA, 2 Ks) is set to begin the game for Colorado. The journeyman pitcher has tossed five scoreless innings through two appearances.
Cincinnati vs Colorado Trends
Cincinnati is 24-16 against the spread this season, with a 21-19 O/U record. Colorado is 19-22 ATS this year, with a 16-25 over/under record.
Corey’s Free Pick
Colorado snuck away last night, but game two may come a bit easier with Cincinnati set to send a rookie to the mound at the vaunted Coors Field. It’s not unheard for a pitcher to succeed in his debut, but Brandon Williamson may have a tough time in this stadium. With the Rockies electing for a bullpen day themselves, we could see runs scored from both sides in this one in similar fashion to game one. The Over sits high once again, so I like trusting the Rockies to win their third straight at home.
