MLB Betting Trends
The Padres are 1-4 in their last five road games. San Diego is 4-1 in the last five Lauer starts.
The Rockies are 6-1 in their last seven versus the NL West. Colorado is 13-3 in the last 16 Marquez home starts.
Nolan Arenado should return to the lineup for the Rockies today after resting last night, while it seems as though Story will be good to go too. That's enough for me as the duo crushes lefties at home, while Marquez has won way more often than not in his home starts. That is partly due to good run support, but he also knows how to pitch in his home ballpark and his stuff plays even in the thin air. Look for Colorado to get back on the winning side of the coin here.
