Rockies vs Giants Odds - Slumping Giants look to make up ground in Wild Card race

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 4/24/2012 9:53:09 AM
MLB oddsThe Rockies vs Giants odds will pit the first and second place NL Wild Card competitors against each other. Online betting sharps know that the race is essentially the Rockies bats versus the Giants pitching. The Giants have lost five of their first six games after the All-Star Break and will try to regain their grip on the Wild Card as the Rockies visit.

Rockies vs Giants odds:

  • Rockies have won 10 of last 14 games
  • Giants are 31-15 at home (most wins at home among NL teams)
  • Giants bats are struggling; took them 28 innings after the All-Star break to score an earned run

Friday, July 24, 9:10 p.m. ET
Jason Hammel (5-4, 4.26) vs Matt Cain (11-2, 2.32)

Jason Hammel will take the mound on Friday in a one-sided matchup that should have the Rockies vs Giants odds heavily favoring the home team. Hammel has been inconsistent this month, having two starters where he allowed just one earned run in each (13.2 innings pitched) as well as two starts where he gave up nine earned runs in each (8.2 innings pitched).

There’s no question that the All-Star Cain will be the big favorite in the sportsbook but the question is whether he’s worth betting. Considering Cain is 6-1 with a 2.26 ERA at home this year with a 1.16 WHIP, he is worth the price.

MLB betting edge: Giants

Saturday, July 25, 8:10 p.m. ET
Jorge De La Rosa (7-7, 4.95) vs Jonathan Sanchez (3-8, 4.68)

At first glance, De La Rosa’s numbers don’t look so hot. At a closer look, though, he’s been one of the best pitchers in baseball over the last month. Rockies vs Giants betting handicappers should note that De La Rosa has an ERA of 2.42 in July. He also has a WHIP of 1.09, which has helped keep his ERA so low.

Meanwhile, Sanchez has been fairly strong himself in July. In his last four outings, Sanchez has allowed just three earned runs (1.50 ERA) included a no-hitter that he pitched on July 10th. But De La Rosa has pitched well on the road (3-2, 3.89 ERA) so look for the Rockies to have the edge on Saturday.

Sunday, July 26, 3:10 p.m. ET
Aaron Cook (9-3, 3.94) vs Ryan Sadowksi (2-2, 4.15)

The Rockies vs Giants odds might favor Colorado – or be close to even – as the Rockies will have their ace on the mound on Sunday. He’ll face Ryan Sadowski, who has struggled recently. Sadowski got rocked for eight earned runs in 3.2 innings pitched in his most recent start on July 21st. He might have a tough time with the Rockies’ potent lineup.

Meanwhile, Aaron Cook has struggled a little bit in July after posting ERA’s of 2.93 in May and 2.36 in June. MLB betting handicappers should be cautious with him as he’s giving up a lot of hits this month. In May, his WHIP was 1.23. In June, his WHIP was 1.12. In July, he’s allowed 34 hits in 23 innings so far while walking eight batters, which puts his WHIP at 1.83 this month.
