Arizona Vies to Spoil Rockies’ Streak
Posted by: Mike Davis
As the run line baseball betting season continues to progress, more and more players are beginning to shift their attention to the NL West where things are tighter than ever. In the entire MLB, only three teams have over 40 wins – and they all happen to reside within the NL West. The Colorado Rockies, the current leaders of the NL West, will have a shot at increasing their slight lead this Wednesday. But before we look over the Rockies matchup against the Arizona Diamondbacks, let’s mulch over Tuesday’s MLB betting results.
Tuesday’s Run Line Baseball Betting Recap
Tuesday’s action got off to a solid start when the Cardinals and Angels both scored 8 runs over the Phillies and Yankees respectively to kick off the days’ action. Afterwards, players got to witness a pair of 5-6 contests as both the Orioles and the Rays beat the Indians and Reds (respectively) by that score.
After those midday contests, MLB betting fans got to witness the first blowout of the day. The Washington Nationals romped the Miami Marlins 12-3, a feat that would be surpassed by the Dodgers 12-0 shutout over the New York Mets. ESPN broadcast that game, giving the entire nation a shot at seeing the Mets’ embarrassment.
Tuesday’s most heated matchups featured the Seattle Mariners picking up their second straight win over the Detroit Tigers, which gives the Mariners a three-win streak overall. The Diamondbacks-Rockies contest ended up being closer than anticipated. Nevertheless, Colorado was able to close out the game 4-3, picking up their 6th straight win.
Colorado and Arizona will go at it again this Wednesday, giving Major League Baseball fans a healthy dose of NL West’s elite action. Let’s see what the sportsbook lines are predicting for this matchup.

Before their Tuesday night loss to Colorado, the Diamondbacks were happily shining their 4-game win streak. But since the Rockies snapped their benchmark, Arizona will be looking to return the favor this Wednesday.
The run line baseball betting lines are predicting a contentious match and so are the current NL West standings. The Diamondbacks currently rank third in the NL West, thanks to their 44-27 record, which places them 3-games behind the Rockies. Additionally, Arizona is 2-games behind 2nd place Los Angeles.
To help close in on that lead, the Diamondbacks will be starting Taijuan Walker. Walker is 5-3 on the season with a 3.32 ERA and 1.30 WHIP. Walker has been great as of late, allowing only 6 hits in his last 5 innings.
The Rockies will be vying to keep their win streak alive this Wednesday. Colorado enters this contest with a 47-26 record. Colorado has been absent from the postseason for the last 6 years. It looks like the franchise will finally be putting an end to that drought in 2017.
Jeff Hoffman will get the start for Colorado. Hoffman is 4-0 on the season with a 2.25 ERA and an impressive 0.94 WHIP. With Hoffman on the mound, Colorado enters this contest as the betting favorites.
