Rockies vs. Padres Odds
|Time||10:10 p.m. ET|
The Rockies head to San Diego to take on the Padres in the first game of a four-game set. Colorado has lost four of its last five games, while the Padres are coming off of splitting a two-game set against the Oakland Athletics.
San Diego is comfortably in a NL wild card spot and just 5.5 games back of the first-place San Francisco Giants in the NL West. While the Padres boast a top-10 offense in terms of producing runs, the Padres have only averaged three runs per game over their last three losses.
Despite the Rockies being in the midst of a bad slide down the standings, they recently showed some impressive offensive pop in a 12-3 shellacking of the Los Angeles Angels on July 27.
Perhaps that game is what Rockies bettors are thinking about as we approach Thursday’s game. Let’s take a closer look at the value that Thursday’s Rockies-Padres game is providing in our latest PRO Report.
