ROCKIES vs CARDINALS MLB BET ANALYSIS
The Colorado Rockies host the St. Louis Cardinals as two of baseballs hottest teams square off. Both teams have won 8 of their last 10 games and are making serious playoff pushes. Our play on tonight’s game is taking the Rockies to score less than 5 runs. Miles Mikolas is the starter for the visiting Cardinals. He is having a ridiculously good season for the Cards. He is 13-3 with a 2.80 ERA and has been a key factor to their success down the stretch of the season. What has me impressed is his impressive run of starts on the road. In his last 5 games on the road, he has held his opponent to 2 runs or less in all of them. Also, in the last 2 months, he has only allowed over 3 runs in a start once. With numbers like that, I would think he will have another strong start tonight. The Rockies have not been setting the world on fire offensively. Despite their winning run, 4 of their last 5 games have seen them score 5 runs or less. This includes a 3 game home series against the Padres, who rank 23rd in the league in runs allowed. If they could not take advantage of the weak Padres pitching then there’s no reason to believe they will be able to do damage against a guy like Miles Mikolas. The Cardinals have also been very solid not allowing runs as a team. They have only given up 18 runs in their last 8 games which has them playing with a ton of confidence. Expect another very strong outing from Mikolas and back the Rockies team total under.
