Baseball Betting Online Odds:
The Rockies tumble into this Tuesday night matchup flashing a 63-55 record that ranks them 2nd in the NL West. Currently 1-game behind the division leading Diamondbacks, the Rockies are on the cusp of taking the No. 1 spot in the division. And since they enter tonight’s matchup riding a 3-game winning streak, they certainly have the momentum to do so. However, there’s no guarantee that Colorado comes out on top this evening. Especially since they went 1-1 in a 2-game series against Houston in July. On top of that, tonight’s baseball betting online odds are siding against the Rockies on the road. To help prove them wrong, the Rockies will be sending German Marquez to the mound this evening. Marquez is 9-9 on the season and will be looking to improve on his 4.69 ERA and his 1.38 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Nolan Arenado (29 HR, 82 RBI, .306 BA), Trevor Story (24 HR, 81 RBI, .289 BA), and Charlie Blackmon (22 HR, 50 RBI, .276 BA).
The Astros fly into this inter-conference pairing flashing a 73-46 record that gives them the No. 1 spot in the AL West. Nevertheless, the Oakland Athletics are right on the heel of the Astros. In fact, Oakland is but 2-games behind Houston. Having said that, it’s clear the Astros need to snap their current 4-game losing streak this evening. Luckily for them, they’ll have the home field advantage this evening. And since they’ll be sticking with Justin Verlander tonight, they’ll also have the better pitcher on the mound. After all, Verlander is 11-7 this season and brings a 2.50 ERA and a 0.91 WHIP to the table.
Players to Watch: Jose Altuve (9 HR, 46 RBI, .329 BA), Yuli Gurriel (6 HR, 56 RBI, .281 BA), and Alex Bregman (22 HR, 73 RBI, .280 BA).
