Colorado vs Milwaukee MLB Prediction

Not completely sold on Chad Bettis as a good major league pitcher. I do like the Rockies, as they have been one of the hot teams in the National League since the All Star break. This bet is more about betting against Nelson than a bet on Bettis. Nelson has been a terrible pitcher over the last 3 months. This game could go to the bullpen early as both pitchers may be gone by the 6th inning. That said, I do like the eight starting players the Rockies will be playing in the field. The Rockies have the better pitcher and the better team in the field. Taking the Rockies on the money line as long as they are below (-125). If it goes over (-125), then I will bet 50% on the money line and 50% on the Rockies run line (-1.5).

Colorado vs Milwaukee Prediction:
Rockies 7 – Brewers 4
