Padres in Playoff Drive
The San Diego Padres just saw their five-game winning streak come to an end Thursday, taken down by the St. Louis Cardinals.
The loss has them just a half-game ahead of the Philadelphia Phillies for the second spot in the National League wild-card race.
Meanwhile, the Colorado Rockies, having lost their last four, are already out of contention with just 64 wins on the season. They’re a home ‘dog on the MLB betting odds here.
Padres Turn to Manaea
Colorado Rockies have looked like a team that can’t wait to end the season, scoring just four runs in their last three games and batting .218 as a team over their last 10.
Lefthander Sean Manaea is tasked with keeping them down Friday, He’s a 7-9 record and a subpar 5.18 ERA this season, with the Padres having his last four mound appearances.
Does that mean the Rockies are worth a BetOnline? It might be.
Manaea on the road is 2-6 with a 6.10 ERA.
Colorado Counters with Feltner
San Diego Padres’ pitching situation isn’t great, and neither are the Rockies. That could lead to a solid overbet.
Righty Ryan Feltner (3-8, 6.05 ERA) gets Colorado’s Friday assignment
Feltner opposed San Diego earlier this season (six innings, one run, two hits) in what turned out to be an extra-inning loss by the Rockies.
Colorado’s dropped four of Feltner’s last five starts. He has a 7.43 ERA in September.
That makes it hard to back the Rockies on the MLB odds here.
