Colorado Rockies vs Cleveland Guardians Betting Odds
The Cleveland Guardians are favourites to defeat the Cleveland Guardians with the odds at -130 for their win while the odds for the Rockies’ win are at 110.
The total runs margin is set at 11.5 with both ways at -110.
The Cleveland Guardians have been one of the better teams in the month of June with a 10-3 record. This includes their 7-5 win on Wednesday over the Colorado Rockies that pushed their season record to 31-27. That is good for second place in the AL Central just 2.5 back of the Minnesota Twins and Thursday’s game is another opportunity to get a win over the Rockies who are at the bottom of the NL West.
With Triston McKenzie on the mound who is 3-5 for the season with a 3.09 ERA, the Guardians are in the driving sit to sweep the series against the Rockies. Colorado will start Chad Kuhl tonight who is 4-3 for the season with a 3.70 ERA. He is one of the best pitchers for the Rockies who will not allow many runs but that will still not be enough to avoid another loss. The total run margin is set pretty high for this game, at 11.5 runs and since 7 of the last 10 games between these two teams have finished under it, that is another option for placing a bet that can be considered.
