MLB Betting Trends

Chicago

The Cubs are 7-1 in their last seven Wednesday games. Chicago is 9-3 in the last 12 Hamels starts.

Colorado

The Rockies are 12-4 in their last 16 games overall. Colorado is 52-25 in its last 77 home games.

Prediction:

Senzatela has been much better as of late, but Hamels is savvy and should navigate Coors Field better than most. I think the Cubs touch up Senzatela as he has a low strikeout rate and won't be fooling anyone today. The Cubs have some big bats and they are due for a big game this series. Taking the road favorites this afternoon.
