The United States and Colombia face off on Wednesday in a Pool C World Baseball Classic showdown at Chase Field. 

United States Betting Preview

The United States sits with a 2-1 record overall and with a victory here, they are going to be in an excellent spot. On Saturday, the United States scored six runs against Great Britain, and that was enough to secure the four run victory. On Sunday against Mexico, the pitching was awful, giving up 11 runs and that led to the six run victory. On Monday, it only took seven innings against Canada, and they were able to secure the 12-1 victory. The United States used a balanced attack, but Mike Trout had another big game. Trout finished with one hit, two runs, and three RBIs. The pitching is still a question for this team, but this is quite a talented offense. 

Colombia Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is Colombia, who sits with a 1-2 record overall, and it’s been mostly a major disappointment for them. On Tuesday they faced off against Great Britain and they were defeated 7-5. They tried to make a late comeback, scoring two runs in the 9th inning, but it wasn’t enough as they were defeated by the two runs. Dyan Frias was the best player, finishing with two hits and two RBIs. This is a very tough matchup for Colombia and if they want a chance to find success, they are going to need the pitching to be good. Getting into a higher scoring game is probably not something that they want to win to happen. 

Shane’s Free Pick

The loss for the USA against Mexico was shocking, but they got back on the right track, putting up 12 runs on Canada. The United States offense is so talented, and this Colombia pitching is awful. Look for the United States to score at least 12 rums again in this game, and this is going to be an easy victory for the United States. Back the United States -4.5 runs to cash. This is a very strong play.

Shane Mickle's Free Pick: USA -4.5
