MLB Predictions: Chicago Cubs vs. Colorado Rockies Odds: July 30th 2010
I really like the Rockies in this game as they look to get on a winning streak after ending their dreadful losing streak last night with a victory over Pittsburgh. The Rockies are a very streaky team, and I look for them to turn it on from here on out now that they are finally getting healthy. Starter Jeff Francis is 1-0 with a 2.65 ERA over his last 3 starts. Chicago’s Ryan Dempster sports a 4.34 ERA and 1.821 WHIP in his last 3 outings.
Dempster owns a woeful 7.42 ERA and 1.648 WHIP in 9 lifetime starts against Colorado. The Cubs are 9-20 in Dempster’s last 29 road starts. The Rockies are 74-36 in their last 110 home games. The Rockies are 24-11 in Francis’ last 35 starts vs. a team with a losing record. COlorado is 57-26 in their last 83 home games vs. a team with a losing road record. Bet the Rockies Friday.
