MLB odds expectations are high for the Colorado Rockies as they are considered to be a bona fide MLB baseball betting playoff contender from the NL West.
The Colorado Rockies will host the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday night with a starting time of 9:40 PM ET. Sports Gambling will have side and total odds on this inter league spring training exhibition game so be sure and open your account today.
Seattle won 11 of their first 18 games with the MLB lines in exhibition play as they try and pick up the pieces from a disastrous season in 2010. The Mariners were the surprise team in 2009 with 85 wins and were the trendy pick to win the American League West last year but they imploded and won just 61 games.
Seattle does boast Cy Young Award winner Felix Hernandez on the hill and hit machine Ichiro Suzuki. Jack Wilson has had the hot bat in spring training so far with a .500 average and 7 runs scored. Much of the rest of the lineup has been quiet however and Jack Cust led the team in home runs with just 3 and a .250 average.
Colorado had a baseball wagering record of 15-8 to begin the exhibition season. The Rockies have been a playoff team in 2 of the last 4 seasons and were something of a disappointment last year when they slipped from 92 wins in 2009 to 83 last year.
Colorado is considered to be a bona fide threat in the National League West and wild card race this year. Ubaldo Jimenez anchors the rotation as one of the elite starters in the game and as a slump stopper.
