Betting baseball expectations remain high for the Colorado Rockies despite a recent cooling off period as they remain one of the top contenders in baseball wagering as well.
The Colorado Rockies will host the San Francisco Giants on Monday night with a starting time of 8:40 PM ET. Sports-Gambling will have side and total odds on this National League West Division showdown so be sure to have your account open and ready for action.
The scheduled probable starting pitchers are Jonathan Sanchez of San Francisco and Clayton Mortensen of the Rockies.
Sanchez had a record of 3-2 with a 3.68 earned run average. The Giants split their first 24 road games with a break even mark of 12-12 with the MLB betting odds as 10 of those 24 away games went over the total. San Francisco was 22-17 overall and led the National League West Division despite a weak offense that ranked 29th in the big leagues for run production.
The Giants ranked 4th overall for staff earned run average. The best batting average on the Giants starting lineup was Aaron Rowland who was hitting just .262 as it illustrates their offensive woes.
The injury to Pablo Sandoval has proven to be critical as he is on the 15 day DL with a hurt hand. Sandoval was hitting .313 with 5 home runs and is sorely missed. Heading into this series the Giants had won 8 out of 10 games.

San Francisco has dominated this head to head series as of late with 9 wins in the last 11 matchups. The Giants have won 3 of their last 4 games at Colorado with 4 of the last 5 meetings between these two teams going over the betting baseball total.
