The Colorado Rockies could use a feel good win after losing eight of their last 10 games. The Rockies have allowed 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 12 of their last 16 games. The Colorado Rockies have an ERA of 4.93 and have lost eight straight games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, DJ LeMahieu leads Colorado with 192 hits, Charlie Blackmon has 79 RBI and Nolan Arenado has 40 home runs. Chad Bettis takes the hill, and he’s 13-8 with a 4.92 ERA and 133 strikeouts this season. Bettis is 1-1 with a 3.18 ERA and eight strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. National League West and 1-5 in their last 6 games following an off day. The Rockies are 5-2 in their last 7 home games and 4-1 in Bettis' last 5 starts. The Brewers are 19-39 in the last 58 meetings in Colorado.
Both teams are in nasty losing slumps and simply can't wait for the season to end. However, the Brewers had Thursday off while the Rockies played late Thursday night in San Fran and have to travel. I'm also not sure how somebody can lay heavy juice with the Rockies given the way they've played the last two weeks. I'll take a stab with the Brewers have heavy plus money given the value.
