The Atlanta Braves and the Colorado Rockies meet today for game three of their series from Atlanta. All odds for all games can be found at Top Bet sportsbook.
The Braves are in the thick of the playoff race, but did not help themselves when they lost on Tuesday to the Rockies. They scored 1 run on 9 hits and did not give Tommy Hanson the run support he needed despite a pretty good performance out of him.. Tonight the Braves will give the ball to Mike Minor who has lost his last three decisions. For the season Minor has allowed 138 hits in 148 innings of work good enough for 4.79 ERA.
The Rockies have had another rough season, but are still plugging away evident by their win yesterday versus the Braves. They did enough for starter Drew Pomeranz with the bats to secure the victory. Tonight the Rockies will start Alex White was yet to win a game this season. He is pitching to a 5.58 ERA in 80 innings of work.
Atlanta is 14-6 in their last 20 home games against a team with a losing record, 15-8 in their last 23 home games, and 1-4 in Minor’s last four starts. Colorado is 6-1 in their last seven games against the NL East, 6-2 in their last eight games as a road underdog, and 5-2 in White’s last seven starts. Colorado is 1-5 in the last six meetings of these two.
The Braves should bounce back and get a win here against an inferior team and starting pitcher. Give us Atlanta as a prohibitive moneyline favorite at the sportsbook.
