Colorado Rockies at Philadelphia Phillies (-160, 10½): Phillies southpaw Jamie Moyer (4-3, 4.37 ERA) gets the pill tonight for Philadelphia in the first of a three-game series in the City of Brotherly Love. The Rockies send lefty Jorge De La Rosa (1-2, 7.78 ERA, 1.73 WHIP) out and he may want to bring some goalie’s pads as the talented Phillies lineup exploded for 15 runs on Sunday in a win against the Astros.
Besides the obvious big bats – Chase Utley (15 HRs), Ryan Howard (14), Pat Burrell, NL MVP Jimmy Rollins, Aaron Rowand – Philly is also getting production from guys like Shane Victorino and Geoff Jenkins now. And to hand with the NL East-leading Marlins and the Mets and the Braves, the Phillies (28-24) need to start compiling some win streaks.
Colorado is a pathetic 8-16 on the road, and as baseball bettors know, going against the Rockies out of Denver has been a pretty easy thing to do the last couple of season. PHILLIES -160
BONUS PICK: TAMPA RAYS -170 vs Rangers (Kazmir 3-1, 1.57 ERA) + TB Won 16-17 in The Juice Box.
