Colorado Rockies at Boston Red Sox Betting Pick

The Colorado Rockies will wrap up their three-game series at Fenway Park in Boston on Wednesday. The Rockies have won the first two games of the series and three in a row overall. Colorado comes into the game with a 29-40 record, which is last place in the National League West. For Boston, they are 33-35, which is also last in the American League East. The Red Sox are massive favorites in this game at -235.

Rockies Starving for Pitching

Like many Colorado Rockies teams, they are starving for pitching. The Rockies are 29th in runs allowed, as they are allowing more than 5 per game. Teams are averaging more than 9 hits per game on them, and the Colorado pitchers have the worst batting average against, at .274.

Austin Gomber will go for the Colorado Rockies in this one. The 29-year-old throws lefthanded and is coming off a tough outing where he allowed 11 hits and 7 runs over just 4 innings. In fact, Gomber’s last three starts have seen 15 runs allowed in just 10 innings pitched. Gomber is 4-5 with a 7.57 earned run average this season.

On the offensive side, Randal Grichuk has actually been pretty strong in his 34 games. He leads the team with a .310 batting average but has just one homerun. Veteran Charlie Blackmon is hitting .265 on the season and has just 5 home runs. Ryan McMahon anchors the team in the power department, with 10.

Red Sox Looking for Home Win

For Boston, they will throw Garrett Whitlock. Whitlock is 3-2 on the season, with a 4.78 earned run average. The right-hander has struck out 26 batters in 32 innings while walking just 6. Whitlock is 27 years old and made his Major League Debut in 2021.

Boston is another team that needs pitching help. The Red Sox are allowing 4.9 runs per game, and 8.6 hits per game, both near the bottom of the league. The Red Sox have allowed just shy of 6 runs per game in their last five losses.

On the offensive side, the Red Sox have seen a nice surprise from Masataka Yoshida, who is hitting over .300, despite his 0-4 on Tuesday. The power for the Red Sox is coming from Rafael Devers, who is the only player on the team with double-digit homeruns, and that is 15.

Red Sox Salvage a Home Win

The Boston Red Sox have been disappointing this season. With higher expectations and a below .500 team, this seems like a team that is ready to sell at the deadline. But the Rockies are not very good, and it is not likely they will win their fourth straight. Look for Boston to get to the lefthanded starting pitcher early and win this game. Betting the Red Sox is the no-brainer, but taking them -1.5, at -135, is the way to go. Bet the Red Sox on Wednesday.
