Bettors Cashing in on Low-Scoring MLB Games in Mile High City

Rockies Home Totals UNDER Betting September 6

Totals bettors in any sport will try to find any edge to tip them off about how a game could unfold and there’s a new trend developing in Denver. The Colorado Rockies are usually associated with high-scoring games due to the high altitude at Coors Field but what if I told you that they’re the best UNDER bet at home in MLB?

The Rockies own an O/U record of 25-40-2 at home and have the best UNDER percentage at home in the league. If you’d bet $100 on the UNDER in every one of their home games, you’d be up $1,224.42.

Why do these games keep going UNDER?

When you think of Coors Field, the first thing to come to mind is elevation from being in the Rocky Mountains and how balls may carry farther in both MLB and NFL games. As a result, oddsmakers typically tab a Colorado Rockies home game total at 10 or more and sit back to watch the offensive explosion. But what’s been happening is the inflated total has allowed UNDER bettors to reap the rewards.

Here is an O/U breakdown of Rockies home games month by month:

  • O/U: 5-7
  • 10.58 avg combined score
  • +$118.4 for UNDER Bettors
  • O/U: 3-8-1
  • 10.25 avg combined score
  • +$451.04 for UNDER Bettors
  • O/U: 10-3
  • 14.62 avg combined score
  • -$733.45 for UNDER Bettors
  • O/U: 2-11-1
  • 7.86 avg combined score
  • +$804.05 for UNDER Bettors
  • O/U: 4-9
  • 8.77 avg combined score
  • +$504.98 for UNDER Bettors
September (As of September 6)
  • O/U: 1-2
  • 11.0 avg combined score
  • +$79.4 for UNDER Bettors

As you can see, the UNDER has been the profitable wager every month except for June. If you weathered the storm for that month, July and August became quite rewarding as the UNDER hit in 20 of 27 games for a profit of $1,309.03.

What Should Bettors Do?

Well, considering that almost half of Rockies home games have gone UNDER, why not keep riding the wave? The Rockies have 14 regular-season home games left in 2018 and the Coors Field totals have been set at 10 or more in 60 of their 67 home games. So, it’s worth monitoring if oddsmakers will continue to set the line at 10 for the remainder of those home games but if that continues to be the case, bettors may want to keep firing away at the UNDER as it’s turned into a lucrative endeavor.
