Marlins' Richards shelled for six in loss to Orioles

Trevor Richards was rocked for six runs on nine hits over 3 1/3 innings in a loss to the Orioles on Sunday. Richard didn’t allow a homer, but the Orioles were able to go station-to-station against the right-hander, and he was wholly ineffective against a not-so-tough Baltimore lineup. The poor start ups Richards’ ERA to 5.40, and he’s struck out just 18 hitters in 38 innings -- with ten of those strikeouts coming in one start. He’s back on the mound on Saturday against the Rockies in Colorado.

Rockies' Anderson allows three runs in loss to Mets

Tyler Anderson allowed three runs over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Mets on Monday. Anderson gave up seven hits -- two of them homers -- and he walked two while striking out five. The southpaw was excellent in his previous two starts, but he didn't have much luck fooling the New York offense on Monday night. The mediocre outing bumps his ERA to 4.52, and his WHIP sits at 1.33. Anderson starts again on Saturday against the Marlins.

MLB Betting Trends

Miami

The Marlins are 1-4 in their last five games overall and are 1-4 in their last five games versus National League West opponents.

Colorado

The Rockies have won four straight and four consecutive against the National League East.

Prediction:

The Rockies are just 1-5 in Anderson's last six starts so I'm not going to lay -180 on the moneyline, even though Colorado is starting to get hot. Instead, the better value is in the over, which is a perfect 5-0 in the Marlins' last five games, is 11-2-1 in the Rockies' last 14 home games, and is 4-0 in Anderson's last four starts.

 

The Pick: Marlins/Rockies over 11.5
