The Seattle Mariners will take on the Colorado Rockies in Game 2 of a split-session doubleheader on Sunday. Our MLB odds series includes our Mariners Rockies prediction and pick. Find out how to view Mariners Rockies.

The Seattle Mariners are finally cooking. They’ve won four games in a row to get back to .500 after starting their season 6-10 and looking absolutely terrible. The Mariners have feasted on National League opponents to get back to break-even. They won against the Cincinnati Reds earlier this week. They then hammered the Colorado Rockies on Saturday in chilly Denver to improve their overall record three weeks into the 2024 season. It’s true that the Mariners will ultimately have to prove they can win games in the American League West, especially against the Texas Rangers and Houston Astros, but every game counts, and the more the M’s can overwhelm, the weaker opponents they face in the National League to face. , the better their postseason chances will become.

The Colorado Rockies are one of the most horrific teams in baseball. The only team with a worse record than the 4-16 Rockies is the 3-17 Chicago White Sox. Even the 5-17 Miami Marlins have a better record than the Rockies. It’s been a terrible start to the season for a team that has no hope of making a realistic postseason push. Let’s be realistic: How will the Rockies, at 4-16, possibly make a move that could threaten the Los Angeles Dodgers, the defending National League champion Arizona Diamondbacks, the talented San Diego Padres and the great San Francisco Giants? who acquired Blake Snell and Matt Chapman this offseason? The Rockies are already in a position where playing young players and giving them work makes sense. Colorado is looking at another year of development as it must figure out how to plan and invest for the future.

Why the sailors were able to cover the spread

Friday evening’s scheduled game between these teams was postponed, resulting in this split doubleheader on Sunday. The first game is at regular (1:10 p.m. local) time in Denver. This second game starts at 6:10 PM in the Mile High City. The Mariners don’t have to fly to Texas on Sunday night. They don’t play a game on Monday. So if you think the M’s will look ahead to the Rangers, think again. Seattle should be able to focus on this game and bury a Colorado team that is playing terrible baseball.

Why the Rockies could cover the spread

As good as Luis Castillo was for the Mariners in eliminating the Rockies on Saturday, let’s just realize he can’t pitch in this game. Colorado will not face the Mariner top prospect. Instead, it will face Emerson Hancock, a back-rotation pitcher who should be much more hittable than Castillo. The Rockies are a bad team, but even bad teams will play good games. It’s hard to lose as often as the Rockies. They need a win.
