MLB Betting Trends

New York

New York is 1-7 in its last eight Wednesday games. The Mets are 7-20 in their last 27 games overall.

Colorado

The Rockies are 3-9 in their last 12 overall. The over is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings.

Prediction:

Lugo has mostly pitched well this season and doesn't allow many home runs, which should serve him well at Coors Field. Bettis has been getting by well with a lot of run support, but with Colorado being so inconsistent I am taking the visitors as slight underdogs here.
