Rockies fall to Cardinals

The Colorado Rockies are coming off a series loss at home to the Cardinals, but they have still won seven of their last 10 games. The Rockies are now 71-59 overall and 37-29 on the road. Colorado is putting up 4.71 runs per game this season while allowing 4.79 runs per contest.

Jon Gray will be getting the start for the Rockies on Monday night. He has started 24 games this year and has a 10-7 record with a 4.67 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. Gray has pitched 140.2 innings this season and has 162 strikeouts with 39 walks.

Angels on a bad skid

The Angels have really put any playoff hopes to bed with a 6-game losing streak in which they have scored three runs or less in five of the six games. Los Angeles is now 63-68 overall and 33-33 at home. The Angels are scoring 4.53 runs per game this year while giving up 4.37 per contest.

The Angels have Odrisamer Despaigne taking the mound tonight. He is making his third start for the Angels and 14th appearance overall this year between L.A. and Miami. Despaigne has a 2-2 record on the year with a 6.35 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP. He has 25 strikeouts and 10 walks over 28.1 innings of work.

MLB Betting Trends

Colorado

The Rockies have won five of their last six interleague games and 11 of their last 15 overall.

Los Angeles

The Angles have lost seven of their last 10 interleague games against a right-handed starter. They also are 21-46 in their last 67 against a winning team.

Prediction:

The Angels just don’t have anything positive going for them. They can’t hit the ball right now and they have a struggling pitcher taking the mound. Despaigne has given up eight earned runs over eight innings in his two starts for Los Angeles. Gray has been pretty steady on the mound and Colorado has much more pop in its bats currently. I expect the Rockies to keep rolling along and make quick work of the Angels.

 

The Pick: Colorado Rockies -150
