Free Pick Prediction: Rockies vs Diamondbacks MLB Betting Odds: While many pundits predicted a rebuilding year for Arizona (53-46), and for Colorado (47-52) to be battling for the NLW division lead, the opposite has actually happened. If the Rockies hope to turn around their season, this three game series would be a good starting point.
First pitch for this NL West baseball betting action is slated for 9:40 PM ET on Friday, July 22, 2011 from Chase Field in picture perfect Phoenix, Arizona.
MLB Probable Pitching Preview: Colorado @ Arizona
This game caught our eye after we studied the probable pitching match-ups for all 15 contests on the slate today. With every MLB team in action, this pitching duel is one of the better ones to bet on.
RHP Daniel Hudson (10-5 3.56) heads to the hill for the Diamondbacks. Hudson pitched a complete game, as he allowed one run on five hits with no walks, in his last start against the LA Dodgers. Hudson has given up two or less runs in six of last eight outings.
Colorado hands the ball to RHP Aaron Cook (0-5 5.82 ERA) who has been anything but lights out so far this season. Cook has struggled with his control since joining the Rockies starting rotation in June as he has allowed 54 hits, walked 17 batters, and posted just 14 strikeouts, in 38.2 innings pitched.
While we wouldn’t put Hudson in the same class as C.C. Sabstia or Justin Verlander , he has solid for the young D-backs while Cook has been anything but spectacular for the Rockies.

Checking our odds comparison app we found the best betting odds for this contest at the JustBet sportsbook. We got back on track after Verlander vaporized the Twins last night and we looking to keep it rolling tonight.
We wouldn’t put Hudson in the same class as C.C. Sabstia or Justin Verlander at this point in his career, but he has solid for the young D-backs while Cook has been anything but spectacular for the Rockies.
Hudson will want to pay close attention to Todd Helton who is on a nine-game hitting streak. Helton is sporting a .394 batting average, with two home runs, three doubles and 11 runs batted in during his longest hot streak of the season.
The D-Backs may join the bidding war for Mets SS Jose Reyes. They lost SS Stephen Drew, for the season, after he fractured his ankle versus the Brewers in a 4-0 Arizona victory last night.
While the Colorado bats have been hotter than those of the D-backs since the All Star break, better pitching (Cook has a 7.59 ERA in night games) will decide this contest tonight.
Side with the Snakes over the Rockies at -1.5 (+120) on the JustBet Run Line!
