You might not have noticed, but the Colorado Rockies (53-46) are playing good baseball. The Rockies have won seven of their past 10 games and 12 of 15. They have also won five straight at Coors Field and eight of nine in front of the home crowd. All of which has helped the third-place club in the NL West win six straight series, each against teams above .500.
Despite their recent success, the Rockies aren’t getting any love from bettors on Tuesday. Colorado is a +130 underdog at home to the Houston Astros (-140). Nearly 80% of moneyline bets are on the ‘Stros. Should bettors take the defending champs or a third-place team?
