Public Service Announcement

FYI - Rocktober mania has swayed the betting public and there is tremendous value on the Diamondbacks tonight.

The Backs are at +162, (which means if you bet $10, you'd win $16.20) and have Micah Owings going against Franklin Morales of the Rocks.

Owings was steady this season, 8-8, 4.30 ERA with a 1.28 WHIP, but he finished the season very strong. He went 15.1 innings in his last two starts, giving up just 6 hits and zero runs. He hasn't pitched since September 27th, so that's a big of a concern, but he was throwing very well in those last two games, and is just as good on the road as he his at home.

His opponent, Morales, is a rookie who only pitched in 8 games this season and never went more than 6 innings. He pitched in one game in the playoffs against the Phillies, and didn't make it out of the fourth, giving up 3 hits, 2 walks, and a homerun in three innings.

I know the Rockies are hot, and I know they are at home, but this +162 is way too heavily weighted towards them. The value here is tremendous.

WWWWWWW, how is that value treating you? You should have taken that money you bet and gone to McDonalds for a value meal. At least you would have something in your stomach other then a bunch in the gut.

Rocktober?????? WTF?

It was still a good value bet at those odds. The game changed on a guy hitting a pop up that managed to get just far enough that nobody could reach it, and all momentum went to the Rockies side. Bad luck.

And please don't think I made up Rocktober.
