Colorado online sports betting markets list the Rockies as underdogs. Despite being on the road, CO sports bettors can get great value on the Rockies in this matchup.
Colorado Rockies Betting Outlook on the Road
As noted above, the Colorado Rockies have struggled on the road in 2022, which is the reason they’re underdogs in the Rockies vs Marlins odds. Diving even deeper, most of their struggles have come against teams in the National League East division. Through 68 games this season, the Rockies are 8-16 against NL East teams. However, most of those games have come against the New York Mets, one of Major League Baseball’s best teams.
In this matchup Tuesday night, I like the Rockies on the road. I know their splits on the road and against this division aren’t great, but some underlying numbers are talking to me in this matchup.

The Miami Marlins are starting left-handed pitcher Daniel Costano (0-1, 0.00 ERA), who has yet to prove anything this season. In addition, the Rockies rank fourth in Major League Baseball in wOBA and OPS against left-handers. They are also top-10 in wRC+ and OBP. It’s hard to deny that Colorado has a plus matchup in this one where they can mount substantial offensive output and start the series out on the right foot.
Marlins Look to Win Four Straight at Home
The Miami Marlins have been much stronger at home than they have been on the road in 2022. They will be facing right-handed pitcher Ryan Feltner (1-2, 4.85 ERA) in Tuesday night’s matchup.
Looking at some deep numbers, the Marlins rank top-10 in wRC+, wOBA, and SLG against right-handed pitchers in 2022. Jazz Chisolm has been the brightest hitter on this Marlins team this season, posting a .244 batting average with 13 home runs and 42 RBIs.

As mentioned about the Rockies, I like the Marlins to continue to feast off right-handed pitching in Tuesday night’s matchup. Look for the Marlins to get on the board early and continue to shake up this Rockies pitching staff.
Rockies vs Marlins Pick & Prediction
After diving deep into this game, there is really only one clear direction to bet this game. The Rockies are top-10 in nearly every hitting category against left-handed pitching, while the Marlins are also top-10 in every hitting category against right-handed pitching.
I’m going to back both teams offensively in this matchup. The over/under is set at 8 with minimal juice on both sides. Give me the over 8 (-105) in the Rockies vs Marlins odds for one unit. Caesars Sportsbook is offering the best odds on the over, but BetMGM is offering great value on the under if that interests you.
Pick: Rockies/Marlins over 8 runs (-105, 1 unit at Caesars Sportsbook)
