Why Bet on Colorado?

The Rockies are at a disadvantage in that they had to play Wednesday at home vs. the Rangers – got killed — and then travel. One of the team’s best players, outfielder Charlie Blackmon, was off Wednesday as he’s been dealing with some hamstring issues of late but may play Thursday. He was 6-for-13 with a double, three RBI and a run over his last three games. Catcher Elias Diaz also sat Wednesday. He was 2-for-4 with a double and a three-run homer in his first game back from the 10-day injured list Tuesday.Third baseman Kris Bryant received a platelet-rich plasma injection for his ailing left foot on Wednesday. Three weeks in a walking boot did not solve Bryant’s bout of plantar fasciitis, so now he’ll try PRP treatment. There will be a reassessment of the recovery process in 7-10 days. It’s looking doubtful at this point that the 30-year-old slugger will be able to make much of an impact the rest of the way in 2022. He’s played in only 42 games this season after inking a seven-year, $182 million free agent contract.The Rockies have used 39 total players (18 position players, 21 pitchers) thus far this season, the fewest in the Majors. The Pirates’ 60 players used leads MLB. The franchise record for fewest players used in a full season is 41 by three different teams, the 1995, 2017 and 2018 Rockies.It’s Ryan Feltner (2-4) on the mound Thursday. Feltner registered a no-decision during last Saturday’s 4-3 win over the Giants, allowing one run on two hits and two walks with five strikeouts in six innings. Feltner held San Francisco scoreless through five frames before surrendering a Joey Bart solo shot to lead off the sixth in submitting his first start of at least five innings and fewer than three runs in seven turns. The 25-year-old induced 10 swinging strikes on 86 pitches en route to five strikeouts after averaging 2.5 per start during his last six appearances. The outing dropped Feltner’s ERA from 6.39 to 5.88.After streaking through four different levels in 2021, Feltner has endured the ups-and-downs in his first full big-league season while jumping between Colorado and Triple-A Albuquerque. But now, with Antonio Senzatela injured, the Rockies will presumably need to throw him into the fire every fifth day, no matter the results.“Initially, I felt like hitters had a really good game plan against me and they knew what areas of the zone I was going to attack and what pitches I was gonna throw.” said Feltner when asked about his adjustments to the big leagues this season. “So I kind of have my game-plan a little bit more nailed down. Now it’s just about making sure I’m making those pitches when I need to, because you do get away with more (mistakes) in the minor leagues.”

Why Bet on NY Mets?

The Mets lost a pair of 4-2 games at Yankee Stadium to start this week and got a rare Wednesday off. The Mets were 4-6 on their 10-game, nine-day road trip. This starts a 10-game, 11-day homestand vs. the Rockies (four games), Dodgers (three games) and Nationals (three games).One bright spot in Tuesday’s loss was Starling Marte going 2-for-4 with a walk and an RBI. The veteran outfielder has five multi-hit efforts in the last eight games, and Marte is batting .382 (13-for-34) over that stretch with three doubles, two homers, two steals, five RBI and six runs. The surge has pushed his slash line on the year back up to .295/.348/.464.Pete Alonso has recorded 136 home runs thus far is in his career. He ranks sixth in MLB history in home runs through a player’s first four career seasons. This includes the 60-game COVID-19 shortened 2020 season. Only Ryan Howard (153) and Aaron Judge (138) have hit more home runs through their first 500 career games.The Mets are 68-6 this season when scoring four or more runs. That is a .919 winning percentage, which is tied for the second-best among teams in the Live Ball era (1920 to present). Only the 1943 Cardinals, with a .929 winning percentage (78-6), have posted a higher mark since 1920. The 1968 Orioles had the same 67-6 mark as the 2022 Mets.It’s ace Jacob deGrom (2-1) on the mound Thursday. He would have been on normal rest Tuesday night against the Yankees, but the Mets wanted to give deGrom a little more between-starts recovery time. Since returning from a stress reaction in his right scapula on August 2, deGrom has delivered a stellar 2.31 ERA, 0.51 WHIP, and 37/1 K/BB ratio in four starts covering 23 1/3 innings.“We’ve gone a long stretch now where these guys haven’t gotten much extra time,” Manager Buck Showalter said of giving deGrom a few extra days. “We want to try to stay ahead of it because September is right around the corner. … We’re trying to keep everybody healthy.”
