Rockies are Still Being Undervalued on the Road

After a first half that left a lot to be desired, the 39-47 New York Mets will open their post-all-star break schedule against a Colorado Rockies team that finds itself in a position to make the playoffs for the first time in eight seasons. 

SHARK BITES
  • The Rockies are 26-21 on the road and 24-21 as an underdog this season.
  • The Mets are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games with Jacob deGrom as the starting pitcher.
  • The Rockies are 6-1 SU and on the runline in their last 7 games against the Mets.

New York’s strength this season was supposed to stem from its superior starting pitching but a slew of injuries has left the Mets with a patchwork staff that Jacob deGrom (9-3, 3.65 ERA) has been the only consistent part of. The ace righty has made 17 starts this season and he went into the break on fire, winning five straight decisions.

The man he’ll square off with tonight, though, is no slouch at the mound either. Jon Gray (2-0, 3.75 ERA) is the ace of a much-improved staff that has the third-best road ERA in baseball. The Rockies have won every game that Gray has started this season and they might be worth a gamble as the underdogs this evening.

Colorado has earned nearly $900 for $100 bettors who bet on the Rockies in all their first-half road games and they opened as the +142 moneyline dogs for the series opener in the Big Apple.
