A trend to keep an eye on
Last year one of the great trends to follow during Rockies games was the First 5 Innings Under for games at Coors Field. This was a result of two main factors:
- The Rockies’ pitching staff generally being pretty good
- The Rockies’ offense generally being pretty bad
We generally saw a total around 6.5 or 7.5 and that helped to cash the under at a fairly healthy clip. I would anticipate, at least to start the season, that we’re probably going to see this trend continue. Check out what this line is at for the first couple games of the Dodgers series with matchups like Marquez vs. Kershaw and Bauer vs. Senzatela.
Another thing that is great about betting just the First 5 Innings:
You don’t have to worry about the bullpens and you’re essentially limiting the game to just the starting pitching matchup. With Marquez, Gray, and Senzatela not really expected to drop off much, and the offense not exactly set to improve much, I like the chances of seeing this trend continue early in 2021.
And that’s it for our 2021 Gambling Preview! While the Rockies may not be set up for the best season ever, there’s still money to be made during their games this year. Let’s have some fun! And if you ever want or need gambling advice, feel free to hit me up on Twitter at @SABRSkeptic.
