Baseball Betting at BetAnySports — Padres Hope Hahn Gets the Hot Hand Back

Things have gone downhill in a hurry for the Colorado Rockies. A team that was so proficient offensively should not be experiencing the misery this team is, but the fact is that they are currently tied for the worst record in the major leagues. On Monday night they will line up against the San Diego Padres in National League baseball betting action that is set to get underway at 10:10 PM ET at Petco Park in San Diego.

Jordan Lyles (6-1, 3.72 ERA) is the starting pitcher for the Rockies, while Jesse Hahn, the very impressive rookie (7-3, 2.28 ERA) takes the mound for the Padres.

The Rockies are 46-71, which means they are the last-place team in the National League West, 20 games behind the front-running Los Angeles Dodgers. This was a team that got out of the gate with a 22-14 record, which makes things even more tragic. The Padres are 54-62 and 11.5 games behind the lead. Colorado has dropped eight of its last ten games, while San Diego has won six of its last eight contests. The future looks bright, if the young pitchers like Hahn can continue to perform.

In the baseball betting odds that have been placed on this game by the people at BetAnySports, the Padres are the favorites at home:

Jordan Lyles Baseball Betting at BetAnySports -- Padres Hope Hahn Gets the Hot Hand Back

San Diego Padres (Hahn – R) -167
Colorado Rockies (Lyles – R) +157

Over 6.5 Runs -110
Under 6.5 Runs -110

Colorado has been able to pound the ball at home, but on the road they are relatively meek, averaging just 3.5 runs a game on a .237 BA. They are also minus Troy Tulowitzki, who is out with a thigh injury. Pitching has obviously failed the Rockies; they have allowed 5.3 runs per game, which is nearly two more runs per contest than San Diego has permitted.

BetAnySports customers know that Lyles has, by and large, been something of a bright spot in the rotation. With his ERA, he looks like a stopper, relatively speaking, on this staff. He is coming off a so-so outing five days ago, as he yielded four runs in six innings against the Chicago Cubs.

You couldn’t ask for much more from Hahn, although San Diego hopes that he can improve on his last start, as he allowed three runs in 5-2/3 frames against Minnesota. That, for him, was a bad outing. Baseball bettors have found him to be reliable at home, as he has a 2.43 ERA. The Padres have won seven of his last nine starts, which is noteworthy considering their overall record.

Of course, BetAnySports patrons also know that when you are 6-1 for a team with a mark that is 25 games under .500 you must be doing something right. But Lyles has been past the sixth inning only a few times, which means that matters are often left in the hands of a bullpen that is the worst in baseball, with a 4.90 ERA. This is a stark contrast to San Diego’s pen, which has a 2.04 ERA at Petco Park. The Rockies have lost four of the last five games Lyles has started.
