The Atlanta Braves and the San Francisco Giants meet on Thursday in the final game of their three-game series. All MLB odds can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Braves came into this series riding a 7 game winning streak, but will be looking to avoid the sweep tonight. Yesterday they scored four runs on eight hits, but could not get hits in key situations to pull out the win. Today Atlanta will start Tim Hudson to try and salvage a win in the series. Hudson has allowed just 85 hits over 90 innings of work this season.
The Giants blew a save, ran out of people on the bench, but still managed to score 8 of their 9 runs in extra innings to pull out the win. A Melky Cabrera solo homerun would send the game to extra innings and it all the Giants had 9 runs on just 9 hits. Today the Giants will send Madison Bumgarner to the mound who has won 7 of his last 8 decisions. The young left-hander is having a sensational season pitching to a 3.15 ERA in 122 innings of work.
Atlanta is 7-2 in their last nine games overall, 23-10 against the N.L> West, and 14-5 in Hudson’s last 19 starts as a home favorite. San Francisco is 3-6 in their last nine road games, 2-8 in their last 10 game three of a series, and 1-6 in Bumgarner’s last seven starts as an underdog. Atlanta is 6-2 in Hudson’s last eight starts against the Giants.
It was definitely an emotional game on Wednesday especially for the Giants. We look for them to build on the momentum and will take them as a slight moneyline underdog in this game so prior to your bet read a sports book review.
