Bet On Colorado Rockies' Games
Different baseball parks add unique challenges to MLB betting and while some differences at parks are almost negligible, the difference in Colorado is profound. The thin air in Colorado means that the ball flies out of there much more often, and even with a deeper outfield and the MLB rule to store baseballs in humidors within the stadium, runs can still come in a flurry there.
You'll find that slumping offensive teams love to have a trip to Colorado on tap because at worst it will likely get most of their hitters back on track and confident again with numerous hits.
Since the results in Colorado can be so erratic at times, there are many MLB bettors that prefer to stay away from Rockies home games altogether. That in itself is a tricky proposition because bettors never want to avoid a certain team/stadium in general because of a perceived bias as they'll end up costing themselves valuable and profitable betting situations.
Yet, that's the stigma surrounding Coors Field.
Looking ahead, Colorado isn't likely to have too many Cy Young winners on their staff because of the ballpark, and need to build a pitching staff that induces plenty of ground balls. Combine that and a lineup with mashers that hit plenty of fly balls and the Rockies will experience success as they did in 2007 en route to the World Series.
The problem with that is it's really hard to entice pitchers to go play there and while sluggers love it there until this team produces more wins consistently, this team will likely remain stuck behind the Dodgers and Giants in the NL West for quite some time.
