ROCKIES VS CARDINALS & JAYS VS A's TWO GAME PARLAY *BEST BET* PREDICTION: July 30, 2018
ROCKIES +2.5/JAYS +2.5 -125
ROCKIES VS CARDINALS
The Rockies come into this game off a very impressive sweep over the red-hot Oakland A’s. The pitching staff did an amazing job holding the A’s to just 4 runs over 3 games. The Rockies have done very well on the road this season. They have gone 30-23 straight up and 33-20 against the run line away from Coors Field. This leads me to believe they will be able to ride that momentum tonight when they take on St. Louis. The pitching matchup in this one sees Carlos Martinez take on Tyler Anderson. Both starters boast similar numbers, so I expect to see this one be an even matchup. The Cardinals have not been all that great at home this season. They sit just a game over .500 with a record of 26-25 and they are just 21-30 against the run line. The 2.5 spread should be more than enough for the Rockies to cover in this one.
JAYS VS A’S
As I stated in my article on the A’s game yesterday when we cashed the A’s team total under, there will be a few games after the A’s ridiculous hot streak where you can get good value by betting against them and that is just what we’re going to do to finish off this parlay tonight. The A’s looked lifeless in their series in Colorado this weekend. They only managed to put up 4 runs over 3 games. The Jays are a bit of a different story. They are looking for their 3rd win in a row as they won the final 2 games of their weekend series in Chicago. Marco Estrada returns for the Jays tonight. This will be a very big game for him as it represents one more audition before the July 31st trade deadline. Edwin Jackson goes for Oakland. The journeyman did not look good in his last start against Texas. He gave up 5 runs and 7 hits over just 4.1 innings of work. With the A’s having lost so much momentum as a team it is tough to see him bouncing back tonight. As with the Rockies, the 2.5 run line should be more than enough for the Jays tonight.
