2 units on Miami -1.5 runs +165 (runline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
The Rockies have been a poor road team for years with '08 being no exception. While they have done respectfully well against the sub .500 teams posting a 10-11 mark, it has been a nightmare for them against the teams that are .500+. The Rockies are 18-38 on the road overall for a pitiful 32.1% winning percentage. It has been a different story against the .500+ teams as they are just 8-27 or 22.9% winning percentage and have lost 18 of the 27 by two runs or more. Starting a pitcher such as Jorge DeLaRosa doesn't make the problem worse as he has amassed a 6.20 ERA on the season, with the Rockies winning just one of his six road starts. The Marlins are the runline choice here with lots of value. Including their wins, the Rockies are under .500 if you took all their road games against .500+ teams and here we are getting close to 1.7 to one odds.
