Bet up to $1,000 Risk Free on Rangers/Rockies at BetMGM Using Bonus Code VIBONUS
Sports Betting Expert
Playoffs are not necessarily out of the question for both the Colorado Rockies and Texas Rangers, but it will take a lot for both teams to make it.
The Texas Rangers are 11 games back in the American League wild card race, while the Colorado Rockies are 13.5 games behind in the National League wild card race. Coors field is always down for some good fireworks, and Tuesday night was no exception. The Rockies were able to blast a two-out moonshot in the late innings to plate three. That wound up being the go-ahead runs the Rockies needed to cement the win.
The Rangers were up 6-4 until that point and eventually lost by one. The Rockies plated six of their seven runs off two home runs. The Rockies will finish the short series in Colorado before traveling East to face the New York Mets. The Rangers will travel home and welcome the Detroit Tigers for three games. For the Rangers to have any hope of the postseason, this stretch will become even more important because they face Houston right after the Tigers series.

BetMGM Sportsbook is listing the Rockies as slight underdogs with a +115 price and the Rangers at a -140 price. A $100 wager on the Rockies would return a profit of $115. BetMGM Sportsbook is also offering a nice run line option which brings some extra value. For the confident Texas Rangers’ backer, a run line is priced at +105. The same $100 wager would return $105.
The Rangers will count on Martin Perez to arm the mound, who has cooled off a bit after such a strong start to the season. He now has three starts allowing five or more in the last ten, after not allowing more than one earned in the previous nine. He still owns a 2.80 ERA on the season spanning 148 innings. He has struck out 132 batters and issued 49 free passes.
He will be opposed by Jose Urena, who has been characterized as inconsistent his whole career. A few good outings to start the season has not been able to hold up in the last few. He has given up 23 earned runs in just his last 31 complete innings. His ERA has now swelled up to 4.71 ERA on the season.
The total is currently set to 11, which is a typical total set for a matchup at Coors. The over and under are coming in at a -110 price. The Rangers are 4-1 to the over in their last five games, while the Rockies have trended in an opposite direction on totals. They have gone under in four of their last five games. The last 15 meetings between these two have gone under 11 times and at a 5-2-1 clip in their last eight. After an over on Monday, an under may be worth a look.
BetMGM Sportsbook is a great place to wager on this matchup and take advantage of the risk-free bet up to $1,000. Remember to utilize the VIBONUS promo code to redeem the promotion.
Until next time, enjoy the ride.
