Why the Colorado Rockies are a good bet on the money line?


No team was hotter to end the regular season than the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies swept Arizona 3-0, swept Philadelphia 4-0, and then won 2 of 3 against the Washington Nationals. Colorado lost the NL West Division to the L.A. Dodgers, but that takes nothing away from how well they’ve played.

Colorado beat Chicago 2-1 in the NL Wildcard Game. Even though they got beat in Game 1, the Rockies should be ready for Milwaukee in Game 2.

Why the Milwaukee Brewers are a good bet on the money line?

Are the Brewers a safe bet for NLDS Game 2?
Nobody believed the Milwaukee Brewers could beat both St. Louis and Chicago and win the NL Central Division. Not only did Milwaukee win the Central Division, they secured home field in the NLDS versus the Colorado Rockies. They just played last night and the Brewers won a very close game.

The Brewers offense should have no trouble taking it to Colorado’s pitchers while Milwaukee’s bullpen has gotten significantly better as the season’s progressed.

Final MLB  Betting Analysis for Rockies at Brewers


Milwaukee Game 2 starter Jhoulys Chacin is a 9-year veteran coming off the best season of his career. His ERA this year landed at 3.50 while his WHIP ended up at 1.16. Chacin went 15-8. He holds Rockies’ batters to a .254 average.

Chacin should show up on Friday with his best stuff. Even if he doesn’t, Milwaukee’s bullpen could bail him out while no matter who Colorado starts, they should have trouble keeping Milwaukee’s bats from lighting up the scoreboard.

The Brewers loaded up on bats before the trade deadline signaling that they had faith in starters like Chacin. He’s got a shot to prove that Milwaukee’s front office was right in thinking that. He shouldn’t fail. Chacin and the Brewers should beat Colorado on Friday.
