Battle of Red-Hot Pitchers in Rockies-Diamondbacks

The Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks are in a heated battle for the final National League wild-card spot, which means Tuesday’s contest between the clubs has major playoff implications.

Shark Bites
  • The Rockies are 1-5 SU in their last six games against the Diamondbacks.
  • The Diamondbacks are 9-1 SU and ATS in their last 10 games against teams with winning records.
  • The Rockies are 7-0 SU and ATS in their last seven games on the road.

MyBookie opened the Rockies as +114 road underdogs with a total of 9.

Jon Gray and Taijuan Walker will get the start for the Rockies and D-backs, respectively. Gray (7-4, 4.07 ERA) owns a 2.55 ERA over his last seven starts, but one of his two losses in that span came against the Diamondbacks in a setback on September 2. The hurler allowed three runs on five hits in five innings at Coors Field in that outing.

Walker (9-7, 3.33) has been fantastic for the Diamondbacks of late, going 3-0 with a 0.79 ERA over his last four outings, all of which have resulted in Arizona wins. The 25-year-old has made five career starts against the Rockies and is 2-1 with a 2.32 ERA against them.

The OVER tends to be a fantastic play when the Diamondbacks play at home. In Arizona’s last eight at Chase Field, the OVER is 6-2.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The visiting Colorado Rockies were 132 moneyline underdogs in this one earlier in the day at most online sportsbooks including Bovada. The total was 9.5 at Bet365 for those preferring OVER/UNDER betting.
