Contrarian Crusher - Rickenbach MLB Game #925 Monday 10* Top Play Colorado Rockies Money Line (+) @ Tampa Bay Rays @ 7:10 ET - The Rockies are off a disappointing 2-2 split of their series at Miami. Colorado was shutout in the series finale yesterday. The Rockies are 13-8 the past two seasons when coming off a shutout loss. Also, Colorado had scored an average of 5 runs per game in the first 3 games of the series. By comparison, the Rays haven't even scored 5 runs in a game yet this season! Yes, Tampa Bay is known for strong pitching but they've managed an average of just 6 HITS per game in their first 4 games this season. Conversely, the Rockies as I noted above, had averaged 5 RUNS per game in their first 3 games this season. Play this game with ACTION on the pitchers because the Rays are going the "Bullpen Game" rout in this one and Ryne Stanek is expected to be the opener but sometimes they change those things up. I want action on this money line play because no matter who pitches, I like the Rockies to bounce back here and I like the Colorado lineup in comparison with the Tampa Bay lineup. Note that Chad Bettis is a quality pitcher when he is healthy and he went 3-1 with a 2.43 ERA in his April starts last year. He should excel against a Tampa lineup that is off to a slow start this season. The Rays are 18-22 (-$6,800) in interleague games the past two seasons. The Rockies are 88-72 (+$30,600) the past two seasons when facing a team with a winning record. Tampa Bay has won 3 straight and the Rockies have lost 2 straight. The markets are over-reacting to this and I am grabbing the road dog value. 10* COLORADO
