  • With temperatures just shy of 100 degrees, the Giants and Rockies will be sweating out today's game at Coors (3:10 p.m. ET).
  • Using The Action Network's betting tools, we've identified how games with similar conditions have played out historically.

The heat wave in Colorado continues today, as the Giants and Rockies will have to play in close to 100-degree heat at Coors Field. In fact, that’s just one of seven games that will feature 90-degree temperatures at one point or another during the game, but is the only one that will see sustained temps above 95.

So what, pray tell, happens in baseball games that have average temperatures above 95 degrees?

Sorry, Heat Miser. It’s only supposed to top out at 99 today …

Overall, overs are 190-180-15 since 2005 with average temps of 95+ per Bet Labs, but there’s more to it than that. The vast majority of these games have come in Texas or Arizona:

  • Texas: 47-34-1
  • Arizona: 119-110-9
