Colorado Rockies vs Kansas City Royals 3/18/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Colorado Rockies will go against the Kansas City Royals in MLB action in Las Vegas Ballpark, Las Vegas, NV, on Saturday, March 18, 2023, at 4:10 PM ET. The Colorado Rockies are having trouble lately.


Midway through the 2010s, they were competitive, but ultimately moved superstar Nolan Arenado, which contributed to their demise. It also didn’t help that Trevor Story left.


There are grounds for optimism even though their chances of contending for a playoff position in 2023 are minimal. People seem to overlook how effective Kris Bryant was on the field in 2022.


Bryant’s 2022 season, in the opinion of many MLB fans, was a disappointing year. Yet the biggest concern was injury, however, he had good numbers for Colorado.


Through 42 matches, the former Chicago Cubs great had a slash line of.306/.376/.475 with an OPS of.851. Bryant should be able to succeed in 2023 after hitting Colorado.


The Rockies do, however, hope that he can play more consistently this year than he did last. One of the main return items in the Nolan Arenado trade was Austin Gomber.


But, Gomber struggled as a pitcher with the Rockies up to this point, and his place in the rotation going into 2023 is in doubt. The fact that pitchers toil at Coors Field should be emphasized.


The steep elevation prevents them from getting as much zip on their pitches, giving hitters an advantage. But, Gomber’s 2022 was utterly terrible.


The lowest walk rate in his career was recorded by Gomber. Also, he regularly forced ground balls. Both of those provide grounds for optimism that Gomber will succeed in 2023.


Will he compete for the NL Cy Young Award? Most likely not. But, it won’t be impossible for him to pitch for the Rockies with a decent ERA. Gomber should finally find his footing because of his reasonably high ceiling.


When Daniel Bard agreed to an extension with Colorado, he surprised a lot of people in the baseball community.


Bard signed a two-year contract before the trade deadline last year, which was surprising considering many teams were thought to be interested in trading for him.


Yet, Colorado is a difficult place for pitchers to succeed, so the Rockies wanted to hang onto their top closer. Last year, he saved 34 matches and received some MVP votes.


  • The Colorado Rockies are 3-2 in their previous 5 contests against the spread.
  • Colorado is 37-43 in their previous road contests against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 1 of the Rockies’ previous 5 contests.

After winning the World Series in 2015, they did not finish with a record above.500, and they were competing each year with the Detroit Tigers for last place in the American League Central.


It doesn’t appear like anything changed going into the 2023 season.

Colorado Rockies vs Kansas City Royals  Predictions 3/18/2023


The Royals will once again compete with the Tigers to avoid placing last in the AL Central, a not-always-stellar division.


Even if the deficit isn’t that wide, the Tigers have more major-league-ready players on their roster, which could help them recover and finish ahead of the Royals once more.


The Tigers took a step back in 2022 but still achieved better than the Royals.


  • The Kansas City Royals are 2-3 in their previous 5 contests against the spread.
  • Kansas City is 37-44 in their previous road contests against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 5 of the Royals’ last 5 contests.

Colorado Rockies vs Kansas City Royals. The MLB pick for this game is the Colorado Rockies. Over the years, Coors Field was a place of terror for the Braves.


But early in June of last year, as part of their 14-game unbeaten run, the Braves swept the Rockies, and in late August, they won two of three at home.


In 2023, the Braves will host the Rockies for four matches in mid-June and travel out west at the end of August.


Although they were 2-4 versus the Rockies as recently as 2021, the Braves defeated them by a score of 6-1 last season.


The Braves wouldn’t have consecutive winning seasons against them since the period between 2011 and 2014 if they managed to win the season series this year. The Colorado Rockies will win to a predicted score of 8-4.
