Rockies on a skid

The Rockies have lost four straight games coming into tonight’s game after being swept at Philadelphia this past weekend. Colorado is 20-25 on the season, 11-14 on the road and 24-19 with the over. German Marquez gets the start for the Rockies tonight. He is 4-2 on the season with a 3.80 ERA.

The Rockies are putting up 5.04 runs per game while hitting .246 as a team. Pitching-wise, Colorado has a 5.00 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP as a team. Charlie Blackmon is leading the team with 13 doubles, four triples, 10 home runs and 28 RBI. Nolan Arenado is adding 12 doubles, 11 home runs and 35 RBI.

Pirates heating up

Pittsburgh is coming off three straight wins at San Diego this past weekend. The Pirates are 24-20 on the season, 9-9 at home and 24-20 with the over. Pittsburgh has Chris Archer taking the mound today. He is 1-3 on the season with a 5.58 ERA.

The Pirates are averaging just 3.84 runs per game on offense while hitting .244. On the mound, Pittsburgh has a 4.25 team ERA and a 1.28 team WHIP. Josh Bell has been leading the team with 14 doubles, 14 home runs and 44 RBI. Sterling Marte is adding eight doubles, four home runs and 17 RBI.

MLB Betting Trends

Colorado

The Rockies are 8-18 in their last 26 games following a loss and they have lost five of their last seven Tuesday games.

Pittsburgh

The Pirates are just 3-7 in their last 10 games and they have lost four straight Archer starts.

Prediction:

Archer has been a mess. He has given up 13 runs over his last 7.2 innings and has allowed three runs or more in four of his six starts this year. Marquez has been getting deep into games, but has given up multiple runs in his last six starts. While Archer has been struggling, Pittsburgh hasn’t given him any run support either. I think at home, he will get some run support. Archer actually has a 3.38 ERA at home over 16 innings. I think he will have a stronger outing than usual and will be able to help lead Pittsburgh to another win.

MLB Prediction: Pittsburgh Pirates +105
