Mets vs Rockies Major League Baseball Online Betting Odds
After what began as a very promising year for the “other” New York team, the NY Mets find themselves 18 games behind the Washington Nationals in the NL East playoff race. The Rockies are in worse shape.
Colorado is currently 19.5 games out in the NL West, but have played better of late. First pitch for this MLB wagering action is slated for 7:10 PM EDT on Monday, August 20, 2012, from Citi Field in Flushing, NY.
New York Mets: Facing another flushed MLB season
New York (57-64) is mess as the Mets have gone 11-24 since the All-Star break. Being a one trick pony in the pitching category (4.25 team ERA) has been the downfall for the not so Amazin’ ones. That said, we get the only thoroughbred in the stable tonight as the Mets trot out knuckle-baller R.J. Dickey (15-4 ERA 2.89) in this contest. Dickey is the better pitcher in this low scoring game.
Colorado Rockies: Reaching for Rocky Mountain lows
Across the country, it’s been an equally challenging season for Colorado as the Rockies have been kicked around all year. Never a contender for a National League playoff position, Colorado has gone 13-25 over their last 35 games. RHP Alex White (2-6 ERA 5.74) starts for the Rockies. Colorado has been decent against other donkey type teams at 5-2 in their last seven contests.
