Some teams make winning look easy, while others seem content to put MLB betting fans through hell on the way to a winning season. The New York Mets seem destined to fall into the latter category this season, as they are huffing and puffing their way towards the end of the season. They will continue their current 9-game road trip when they face the Rockies in Colorado on Friday night.
Quick Look at the New York Mets at Colorado Rockies MLB Odds & PreviewDate/Time:August 21, 8:40 PM, ETVenue: Coors Field, Denver, ColoradoTV: ROOT SPORTS, MLBNRadio: KOA 850Opening Lines: Mets +102, Rockies -112Bartolo Colon (10-11, 4.58 ERA) will start for the Mets, who have lost 9 of the last 10 games with Colon as the starter.There really is very little positives to be taken from the Colorado Rockies (48-70) season to this point. Perhaps the only good thing that you can say is that it’s almost over. The Rockies have lost 8 of their last 9 games, and have not really put up much of a fight in the process. Included in that losing streak was a 4-game sweep at the hands of the Mets, during which they only managed 5 total runs in those 4 games.They are now also on the brink of being swept by the Washington Nationals, although the Mets must be hoping that Colorado can do them a solid by winning that one before rolling over again. Jon Gray (0-0, 2.40 ERA) has played well in all 3 of his starts for Colorado, but has had absolutely nothing in the way of run support.
