Brief Look at the Colorado Rockies at Arizona Diamondbacks Online MLB Betting Odds & Game Info
Date: Thursday, October 1st, 2015
Venue: Chase Field
Opening Line: Arizona -180
— Arizona Diamondbacks (@Dbacks) September 30, 2015
The Rockies (66-91) seem to be one of these teams that go from very bad to very good in the space of a single series. Last week was the perfect example, as they started it out by getting swept in 4 games by the Pirates, only to turn around and sweep the Dodgers on the weekend. The problem for the Rockies is that they have had way more bad series than good this season, although they are the team to bet on if you like the OVER bet. The Rockies are the only team in the National League to have scored more than 700 runs this season, but they have also given up a staggering 824. There just isn’t any other team in the NL who comes close to that awful number. The Rockies will send David Hale (5-5, 6.01 ERA) to the mound on Thursday night.
The Diamondbacks (76-81) are a lot like the Rockies in that they like to score a lot of runs. They have managed 697 runs this season, and are actually not as bad defensively, as they have a +21 run differential right now. If Arizona could get a little better production out of their pitching staff, they might not be that bad. They have a number of great offensive guys on the team, including A.J. Pollock, who has a shot at finishing the season with 20 HR and 40 SB. This is a team that is showing slow but steady improvement, and who might be able to make some noise next year if they can land a couple of arms in the offseason. They have the chance to end the season on a bit of a positive note, as a series win over Houston could keep the Astros out of the playoffs. Patrick Corbin (6-5, 3.28 ERA) will get the start for the D-Backs.

Consider This Before Placing Your Bet
The first game of this series was a good one, and it had to go to extra innings in order for Arizona to pick up the win. I think the Diamondbacks will get the job done a little quicker in this one.
