Rockies Look To Escape NL West Cellar Vs. Diamondbacks


Colorado took two out of three games against the division leading Dodgers and now look to extend their momentum at home against Arizona.

The Colorado Rockies came off as a revitalized team against the NL West Los Angeles Dodgers – winning two out of three at Coors Field and improving their prospects heading into July.

At 33-43, the Rockies now look to win a three-game series against Arizona which, if managed, would bring Colorado out of sole last place within the division. The Diamondbacks are 34-42 on the year entering this weekend’s series.

According to Action Network, Colorado is a very slight favorite to win the series opener on Friday night. CO sports bettors have a wide range of legal online sportsbooks to choose from in the Centennial State – and real money wagers are already being taken on this weekend’s games against the Diamondbacks. 

All you need to sign up for a new Colorado online sports betting account is to be at least 21 years old and physically located within the state when making online bets.
