Canada and Colombia face off on Tuesday in the World Baseball Classic at Chase Field in Arizona. 

Canada Betting Preview

Canada comes into this game with a 1-1 record overall, and they are coming off a disappointing loss on Monday. In the first game against Great Britain, Canada scored 18 runs, and that led to a 10 run victory. Even though they won that game, the pitching showed some holes, and that’s what hurt them against the United States. Canada gave up nine runs in the first inning to the United States, and they couldn’t ever bounce back as they were defeated 12-1. They were 10 runned in the 7th inning. Jared Young was the only bright spot, hitting a home run. In this game, the pitching is going to need to be better. 

Colombia Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is Colombia, who sits with a 1-1 record overall, and they are coming off a very bad loss on Monday. In the first game, Colombia faced off against Mexico, and it took extra innings, but they were able to secure a 5-4 victory. On Monday they faced off against Great Britain and they were defeated 7-5. In the 4th inning, Colombia was up 3-0, but the pitching then really let them down. They had seven hits as a team, but they didn’t do enough of bunching together hits. In this game, Colombia is going to need good pitching, or they will fall to 1-2 in the competition. 

Shane’s Free Pick

There is going to be no shortage of scoring in this game. Colombia has a talented offense, and Canada has given up 20 runs so far in the two games. Canada also scored 18 runs, and they are going to get back on the right track with their offense in this game. Both teams are going to have some major issues with the pitching and this game is going to be a shootout. Back the over to cash here.
