Baseball Betting Preview - Rockies at Angels

June 22, 2009
Baseball Betting Preview and Pick - Colorado Rockies at Los Angeles Angels 10:05 ET

By Matt Fargo

This line is on the low side for a home game for the Angels and the public is biting.

Los Angeles dropped its last two games in its series against the Dodgers and that halted a seven-game winning streak.

Matt Palmer gets the call for the Angels and he is looking to stay undefeated on the season.

He has been pitching very well of late, but his undefeated record is mostly due to good fortunes as opposed to stellar pitching.

In his nine starts, only four have been quality outings while in four of his other starts he has allowed four runs or more.

His last three starts have been quality outings, but all have come against weak offenses which will not be the case tonight.

Todd Helton of the RockiesColorado remains red hot and it is a team that is simply finding ways to win. The Rockies have now won five straight games and are 16-1 over their last 17 games. This includes wins in eight straight road games.

During this stretch, the offense has averaged 6.3 rpg but it is the pitching that has been the big catalyst as the Rockies have allowed only 3.5 rpg over those 17 games.

One pitcher who has been part of this success is Aaron Cook who is starting to throw like he did in 2008.

He has tossed three straight quality outings while posting a 2.14 ERA over that span.

His overall ERA has come down to 4.23 and is is that high due to two rough outings in his first three starts this season. Take those out and his last 11 starts have resulted in a very healthy 3.18 ERA.

The Rockies are 6-1 in Cook's last seven starts against a team with a winning record and on the season.

Colorado is 12-5 in their 17 road games against teams with a winning record.
