Why Bet the Rockies

The Colorado Rockies have been one of the pleasant surprises in Major League Baseball to start the season. Offensively, there is no surprise, the Rockies continue to mash the baseball. Outside of the Trevor Story news for Colorado, Nolan Arenado has emerged as a MVP candidate out of the National League. Arendado has blasted a team high 13 homeruns and also drove in 32 runs. The Rockies are fourth in all of baseball with 192 runs scored. Colorado has a team batting average of .278 on the season, which ranks fourth in Major League Baseball.

Why Bet the Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals are one of the top scoring teams in all of Major League Baseball. When the Cardinals win games, they score a ton of runs. St. Louis ranks third with 212 runs on the season. The Cardinals as a team are batting .272 on the season. Matt Carpenter leads the way offensively with 8 homeruns and 26 runs batted in. Adam Wainwright is on the mound for the Cardinals, and he will be looking to get above .500 for the first time all season. The Cardinals need Wainwright and Mike Leake both to pitch better to make a run at the postseason.

My Expert Pick & Prediction

The St. Louis Cardinals are on a nine game home stand, and will want to make some hay with Chicago coming to town next week. Look for the Cardinals offense to get going against a pretty poor Colorado pitching staff. The Cardinals lineup has the potential to be a really big boom or bust offense. Look for St. Louis to really bust out and score a bunch of runs in this game, and the entire series. The bet for Wednesday is the St. Louis Cardinals -150 over the Colorado Rockies with Adam Wainwright picking up the win. The final score prediction: Cardinals 10 – Rockies 5.
