    Why is There So Much Scoring at Coors Field This Year?

    Seems like a hitter's paradise, like how it was in the 90s. What happened to Coors being an okay place to pitch?

    Coorsfield is a huge ballpark man. They did something to make the ball stop traveling so well for a while there but I guess that effect wore off now


    that 2nd homerun by trumbo should have been a pop up

    I dunno if that's just the Rockies swinging the bats better or because there's something different going on now

    yup the balls are kept in a reverse humidifier so they don't fly as much but I guess that is not working too well

    that 2nd homerun by Mark Trumbo looked like a routine pop up to me that just traveled like crazy

    It's probably a good idea to blindly bet overs there until Vegas adjusts



    The average game in Coors field this year has had I believe 12.5 a game, anything less than that (assuming avg pitchers) should be an auto play

    elevation, weak rockies rotation and bp.. colorado has the best games to watch imo, love seeing rockies relief pitchers trying to find the strike zone and getting owned

    Starters have been the main problem. Bullpen when not tired is actually pretty good except at times this year they are pickinh up 5-6 innings regularly so then that causes Tracy to try to leave a starter in longer which in turns adds more runs to the total.

    "Coors Field has produced 132 runs for every 100 runs produced in the average MLB park, and 131 HRs for every 100 homers since 2008"


    Bigger park means more doubles and triples too.

    I'd say bad pitching. but on Saturday, I did check the weather and the wind was blowing out at 10 mph, which could be another factor... although my O/U plays (with the weather factored in) haven't been hitting.

    Another wild and high scoring game



    When is Vegas going to adjust and start putting 12 and 13 lines in these games?

    another game with 7 runs in the first inning



    Vegas sure does like giving out free money. I believe this is like the 18th time in 22 home games that the Over will win for the Rockies


    Unreal

    rockies bats are waking up, and I don't think they've faced any decent pitching lately... maybe dan haren but he got lit up. plus, rockies don't even have one single good starter. 7 runs in the first inning, unreal

    I passed on this one since it was up to 11 when I got around to looking at it. Looks like I'll be regretting it so far. Anyway, there's always tomorrow!

    Rockies have a 21-11-2 (65.6%) Over record as the home team.

    Surprisingly, Miami is right there also at 21-10-2 (67.7%) as the home team.

    4 more runs in just 2.5 innings already



    Hey No Coin, I thought Vegas is a lot smarter than all of us? This is like the 8th time they've made a terrible call on the Rockies' home total in a row



    Yea Vegas never gives away free money

    well I've won 3 straight bets on those, but this one is not looking great. Rockies just can't score for some reason and i'm getting killed with these double plays



    oh well, I was due for a loss or two after being so hot for so long
