This Tuesday night, the Washington Nationals will travel to Coors Field to take on the Colorado Rockies. Since this is the still one of the first games of the season and both teams have underachieved up to this point, both teams could definitely use a win in this one to potentially turn their respective seasons around.

Nationals Look To Get Back .500

The Washington Nationals entered the 2019 season with hopes of potentially returning to the MLP Postseason. According to Vegas oddsmakers, the Nationals were expected to win 88.5 games which means that this team should compete for a playoff spot once again. However, so far this season, the Nationals have been pretty streaky as the team is currently 10-11 and has had serious pitching issues. The team enters this game off of another poor pitching performance after giving up seven runs in the previous game.

The Washington Nationals are led by third baseman Anthony Rendon who was unbelievable last season. Last season, Rendon hit 24 home runs along with 92 RBIs as he remained a serious threat within the team’s lineup. However, Rendon is also a fantastic contact hitter as his batting average has never been below .264 by the end of each of his first six seasons. So far this season, he has looked dialed in at the plate as he currently has a .371 batting average through the team’s first 21 games. However, he did miss the team’s last two games due to an elbow injury and could also miss this one.

Colorado Starts To Heat Up

The Colorado Rockies entered the 2019 season with the hopes of returning to the MLB Postseason. According to Vegas oddsmakers, the Rockies were expected to win 84.5 games which means that this team should end the season with a winning record. However, the team started off the season extremely poorly by losing 12 of its first 15 games. However, since that point, the team has been rolling as it has won seven of its last eight games including a 7-5 victory against the Nationals yesterday.

The Colorado Rockies are led by third baseman Nolan Arenado who has been tremendous over the last few seasons. Last season, Arenado hit 38 home runs along with 110 RBIs as he was an MVP candidate for the majority of the season. However, Arenado is also a magician in the field as he has won the Gold Glove Award at his position every season since 2013. So far this season, however, he has been a bit underwhelming as he only has a .281 batting average along with four home runs and 14 RBIs.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Simply put, this game is in Colorado and the Rockies are the better overall team at this point in time. Washington has looked okay so far this season but the Rockies have been rolling over the last two weeks and should be ready to pick up another home win in this one. I expect this game to be close but I think the Rockies will eventually get to Washington’s shaky bullpen as the team wins this game relatively comfortably. Give me the home team in this one.

Prediction: Colorado Rockies

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Since both of these teams possess below average pitching staffs, I have to lean to the over in this game. Furthermore, the Nationals and the Rockies have the ability to put up at least six runs in any baseball game so I think that this total is too low. I can see this game being somewhere in the realm of 7-6 so I will recommend the over in this game.

Prediction: Over 10
