MLB Betting Trends


The under is 25-10 in the last 35 Rockies games on Saturdays. The under is 7-3-1 in the last 11 Colorado games overall.


The Brewers are 2-6 in their last eight Saturday games. Milwaukee is 10-4 in its last 14 home games.


Anderson has been solid for Colorado this season, especially considering his home park is Coors Field. Peralta started off his MLB career in fantastic fashion and made his debut with a stellar start at the Rockies, but he's struggled to find the plate and hitters are starting to figure him out. While Peralta has a bright future, now is a good time to bet against him as a favorite. Go with Colorado to bounce back with a win here.
