The Atlanta Braves and the Toronto Blue Jays meet for the final game of their interleague series today in Atlanta. All odd and trends for this game can be found at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Braves will be going for the series sweep today vs. the Blue Jays. The offense scored 5 runs on 8 hits yesterday which was more than enough for Tommy Hanson who pitched 8 strong innings in the win. The Braves will send Julio Teheran to the mound today and he will be starting his first game of the season for the Major League club.
The Blue Jays have now lost 4 in a row and the last thing they want to be is get swept in this game. On Saturday their bats were silenced by Tommy Hanson and they will be looking to rebound today. They will send their ace, Ricky Romero, to the hill today. Romero has only let up 60 hits in 78 innings pitched on the year thus far and has an ERA that is right at 4.
Atlanta is 6-0 in their last six games, 8-1 in their last nine interleague home games, and 5-2 in their last seven games as a home underdog. Toronto is 5-1 in their last six games as a favorite, 2-8 in their last 10 road games, and 19-7 in Romero’s last 26 starts. Toronto has lost the last eight meetings of these two.
We really like Romero today and do not think he will let up many runs at all and because of that we think the run total for this game is too high. Give us the under for total runs scored in this one at online sportsbooks.
