Colorado Rockies at Oakland Athletics Betting Pick

Colorado Rockies' Ryan McMahon follows the flight of his solo home run off Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Alex Young in the seventh inning of a baseball game.

The Colorado Rockies and Oakland Athletics are set to play the final game of a three game series.  Oakland won the first game of the series, and the Rockies won in 11 innings on Wednesday.

The Athletics are now 20-31 on the season. They are in a battle with the Los Angeles Angels to avoid last place in the American League West.

For Colorado, they continue to struggle. The Rockies are also in last place. Colorado comes into the series finale at 16-32 on the season. The Rockies have lost five straight games.

The Oakland Athletics are -125 at home over the Colorado Rockies. The total for this game sits at 7.5 runs.

Colorado Rockies struggles continue

Colorado got the offensive party started in the first inning, when Elias Diaz clubbed his fourth home run of the season to put them ahead 2-0. Colorado then got a two run homerun from Ryan McMahon. The Rockies finished with 12 hits, which includes 3 from Diaz and two from Brendan Rodgers.  Colorado is scoring 4 runs per game, but the pitching is allowing 5.5 per game, which is 29th out of 30 teams.

Ryan Feltner will get the nod for the Colorado Rockies in this game. He was beat up in his last start on May 17th. He went four innings, and allowed 7 hits and 5 runs in the game at the Giants. Feltner is 1-4 on the season with a 5.69 earned run average.

After this series, the Colorado Rockies will head home and take on the top team in Major League Baseball. The Philadelphia Phillies come to town for a weekend series. After that, the Guardians will visit for three games. Next weekend, the Rockies are at the Dodgers.

Struggling Oakland Athletics

Oakland trailed 2-1 heading into the ninth inning of the game on Wednesday. Zack Gelof singled to bring Esteury Ruiz home to tie the game. In the bottom of the 11th, Gelof drove another guy in, but it was not enough. Oakland finished the game with 8 hits. On the season, the Athletics are hitting just .220 on the season. That ranks 28th in all of Major League Baseball.

For the Oakland Athletics, Joey Estes will get the start. Estes is making his fifth career start here. He is 1-1 on the season with a 9.35 earned run average. In 8.2 innings, he has allowed 9 runs.

Oakalnd will host the Houston Astros for a three game series over the weekend. After Houston leaves town, the Athletics will head to Tampa Bay for three games against the Rays, and Atlanta for three after that.

Runs A Plenty

Both teams have really struggled this season. This is not a great pitching matchup.  The problem is – can either offense take advantage of it? We do expect there to be some runs in this game.

In the end, we are going to take the home team, Oakland Athletics -125 in a bullpen game. We also like the OVER in this game. The total is listed at 7.5, we think this game will go well over that.
