The Miami Marlins and the Colorado Rockies close out their four-game series this afternoon. All odds and trends for these games are constantly updated at Bovada sportsbook.
The Rockies lost for the second day in a row when they had the tying run on base. This has really been the story for the Rockies all season as they play hard, but usually come up short in the end. They scored 5 runs on 11 hits so their offense did show signs of life. This afternoon the Rockies will start Drew Pomeranz who has lost his last four decisions. In just 60 innings of work, Pomeranz is pitching to a 5.04 ERA.
The Marlins are looking to finish the season strong and took a step in that direction by holding on to the win Saturday. They were led on offense by Giancarlo Stanton who hit a three-run home run to lead a 6 run 14 hit attack. This afternoon the Marlins will start Josh Johnson who has allowed 143 hits in 147 innings of work good enough for 3.73 ERA.
Colorado is 4-2 in their last six home games, 3-9 in their last 12 game four of a series, and 1-5 in Pomeranz’s last six starts. Miami is 6-13 in their last 19 road games, 2-7 in their last nine game four of a series, and 15-6 in Johnson’s last 21 starts against a team with a losing record. Miami is 3-5 in their last eight games in Colorado.
The Marlins just look to be playing harder the last couple days for whatever reason. Combine that with their ace on the mound and we like Miami as moneyline favorite at home so first read sportsbook reviews.
