The Rockies were only a mediocre team last season until getting on one of the hottest streaks ever in the history of the league, which resulted in incredible MLB betting value. Nevertheless, the team was brought down to earth in a World Series sweep and many MLB betting analysts are unsure whether the magic will return in 2008.
MLB betting on the Rockies in 2007 was truly an amazing phenomenon. The Rockies were enjoying a decent season but a playoff berth seemed unlikely as the divisional title races began.
Nevertheless, the team shocked baseball betting fans everywhere by winning 14 of its final 15 games, including one streak of 11 in a row, to earn a wildcard berth in the postseason. The Rockies then continued to shock MLB betting analysts in the playoffs by sweeping the Phillies and Diamondbacks in the first two rounds, thereby earning a trip to the World Series.
However, the magic ended in the World Series as the team was swept in a loss to the Red Sox. Nevertheless, it was the best season ever for the franchise and the club provided tremendous MLB baseball betting value to any MLB betting fan lucky enough to have followed their run.
The Rockies finished the year with an unbelievable 98-65 record against the MLB betting run lines. The question of whether the Rockies will bring their magic back to the field for 2008 is one of the biggest offseason MLB betting questions there is.
The team has not made any major offseason changes, which has logically led some MLB baseball betting analysts to predict the team will be one of the league’s top squads again in 2008.
However, other MLB baseball betting analysts have taken the opposite side and argue that the Rockies’ unbelievable run was a temporary hot streak that is now many months complete.
These MLB betting analysts believe that the Rockies will be promising again in 2008, but will be nothing compared to the squad that enjoyed one of the best 20 game steaks ever in the history of the game.
As you plan your MLB betting for the 2008 season you will have to consider this question very closely and if you can predict correctly then you will certainly find lots of value in the early season MLB betting odds.
