San Diego Padres (49-78 SU, 60-67 RL, 5-5-0 O/U) vs Colorado Rockies (68-56 SU, 66-58 RL, 3-7-0 O/U)

MLB: Tuesday, August 21, Coors Field, Denver, Colorado, 8:40 PM ET.

Fresh off a four-game sweep of the Atlanta Braves over the weekend, the Colorado Rockies will be going for their fifth consecutive win when they take on the San Diego Padres in the first game of their three-game series on Tuesday night.

Robbie Erlin, who is 2-3 with a 3.33 ERA, will get the start for the Padres. The Rockies will counter with Tyler Anderson, who is 6-5 with a 4.39 ERA.

Padres Looking For Second Win In Eight Games

The Padres have been in a slump over the past week, and have just one win in their last seven games. They will be trying to snap out of their funk and get their second win in their last eight games when they play the Rockies on Tuesday.

Offensively, the Padres are one of the worst teams in baseball this season. The team has a .235 batting average, which is 30th in the league. Their .299 on base percentage is also 30th, while their .373 slugging percentage is 29th in the league. The Padres have scored 487 runs this season, which is 26th in the league.

San Diego’s pitching hasn’t been as bad as the team’s offense, but they also rank near the bottom of the league. Opponents have a .259 batting average against the Padres, which is 25th in the league. Their 4.44 ERA is 20th, while their 1.36 WHIP is 22nd in the league.

In his last start, Erlin gave up eight hits and two earned runs in six innings but didn’t get a lot of run support and the Padres lost to the Los Angeles Angels 3-2. They will need another solid performance from him to have a chance to win this game.

Rockies Going For Ninth Win In 10 Games

The Rockies have been on fire over the past week, winning four games in a row and eight of their last nine games. Their streak helped them move within half a game of the Arizona Diamondbacks, who lead the division. They will try to move into a tie for first place in the NL West and win their ninth game in their last 10 contests when they play the Padres.

Offensively, the Rockies are one of the better teams in the league, and they are playing at a very high level right now. The team has a .254 batting average, which is eighth in the league. Their .319 on base percentage is 16th, while their .429 slugging percentage is seventh in the league. The Rockies have scored 582 runs this season, which is 10th in the league.

Colorado’s pitching isn’t as good as the team’s offense but they have been very solid in their last 10 games. Opponents have a .252 batting average against the Rockies, which is 16th in the league. Their 4.58 ERA is 23rd, while their 1.34 WHIP is 20th in the league.

In his last start, Anderson gave up seven hits and nine earned runs in 4.1 innings, leading to a 12-1 loss to the Houston Astros. They will need him to bounce back from the poor performance and give them a quality start on Tuesday.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Rockies have played well in their last five games and have been great in their last nine games against division foes. The Padres have struggled on the road and against teams with winning records. They have also struggled in Erlin’s last seven starts against NL West opponents.

Prediction: Colorado Rockies -180

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Anderson gave up nine runs in his last start and has given up 17 runs in his last three starts, which means the Padres will get some runs off him. However, Erlin has given up five earned runs in his last three starts, so don’t expect him to give up a lot of runs. The teams will combine for less than 10.5 in this one.

Prediction: Under 10.5

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

Colorado’s offense has been great lately, averaging 6.67 runs in their last three games. However, their offense will have a hard time scoring a lot of runs off Erlin, who has been great in his last three starts.

Prediction: Rockies Total Runs Under 5.5

First Five Innings Side Pick
Rating:

The Padres are dead last in the league when it comes to runs scored in the first five innings, averaging two runs in five innings this season. The Rockies are fourth in the league, averaging three runs. Erlin has struggled in his last seven starts against NL West opponents and will have a tough time shutting down the Rockies offense, which has played great during their current run.

Prediction: Colorado Rockies -180

First Five Innings Total Bet
Rating:

Both teams have combined for an average of 5.67 runs in the first five innings of their last three games and their offenses will be facing pitchers coming off an extra day of rest. Expect a slow start to this game and the teams to stay under six runs in the first five innings.

Prediction: Under 6

First Five Innings Prop Prediction
Rating:

The Rockies haven’t scored in the first inning of their last three games, while the Padres are averaging one run in the first inning. With Anderson struggling with his control, expect the Padres to tag him for at least one early run.

Prediction: Will there be a score in the 1st Inning? Yes -135
