While single games over a normal 162-game season aren’t do-or-die, today’s San Diego Padres vs. Colorado Rockies game had added importance due to the shortened 2020 schedule, which could end up being even shorter for some teams that experience COVID-19 outbreaks.
The Rockies (4-1 record) and Padres (5-2) are currently tied atop the NL West with the Dodgers (also 5-2), adding extra importance to today’s matchup.
Oddsmakers opened Colorado as a short -120 favorite against San Diego, and sharp bettors wasted no time hammering this moneyline into shape.
Using The Action Network’s betting tools, let’s examine how the pros are playing this game.
