Online baseball betting expectations were not met by Colorado last year as they failed to repeat as a baseball betting online playoff team despite being a favorite to do so.
The Colorado Rockies will host the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday with a starting time of 3:10 PM ET. Sports Gambling will have side and total odds on this National League West Division matchup so be sure and open your account today for all of the excitement.
After winning 92 games and making the betting baseball playoffs in 2009 the Colorado Rockies were an overlay last year that won only 83 games after being picked as the favorite in the National League West Division.
Colorado believes that they should have been the World Series champion last year rather than hated division rival San Francisco and the Rockies are focused on getting back on track for 2010. Colorado certainly has assets to make a run for it including arguably the most dominant starting pitcher in the game with Ubaldo Jimenez who was 19-8 with a 2.88 earned run average last year.
Jimenez struck out 214 batters in 221 innings of work and had 4 complete games, which is a lot in this era of specialization and pitch counts. Carlos Gonzalez powers the offense as he had a monster year in 2010 with 34 doubles, 34 home runs, and 117 runs batted in with a .336 average.
Arizona is rebuilding this year after a disastrous baseball wagering season in 2010 in which they won 65 games and decided to clean house with a new baseball staff that includes rookie manager and 1988 World Series hero Kirk Gibson.
Colorado has gotten the money in 11 of their last 13 home games against Arizona with 6 consecutive payouts at Coors Field. Arizona did sweep the Rockies as a host last September however which went a long way towards destroying Colorado’s late playoff push. These two teams have gone under the total in 8 of their last 11 overall matchups.
Arizona was a +10000 selection at Sports-Gambling to win the World Series while Colorado was a +1600 online baseball betting choice to win the 2011 World Championship this year.
