Preview

The Atlanta Braves will visit the Colorado Rockies to play a 4-game series at the Coors Field. The Braves lost their last series against the Dbacks while the Rockies beat the Marlins 2 of 3 times.

Atlanta Braves

The Braves get here with a 24-27 record and have lost 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.18 runs per game with a .237 at bat while allowing 4.37 runs. Austin Riley is leading the team with 13 home runs and 28 RBI while Dansby Swanson has the better batting average with .267. 

Max Fried leads the pitching staff with a 3.10 ERA, 57 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded for the Braves.

Probable Pitcher:

Ian Anderson (3-3, 4.34 ERA) will be on the mound for the Atlanta in the 1st game of the series. Anderson didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 6-4 win over the Marlins, giving up four runs on four hits and three walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out five. He had one start against the Rockies last season and allowed 4 runs in 3 innings pitched.

Colorado Rockies

The Rockies get here with a 23-27 record and have lost won 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.74 runs while allowing 5.7 runs per game. CJ Cron leads the team with 13 home runs, 38 RBI and batting for a .306 AVG.

Chad Kuhl leads the pitching staff with a 3.56 ERA, 38 strikeouts and 4 wins recorded for the Rockies.

Probable Pitcher: 

Austin Gomber (2-5, 5.51 ERA) will start for the Rockies in the 1st game of the series. Gomber took the loss in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals, coughing up eight runs on seven hits and three walks over 1.1 innings. He struck out one. 

BETTING TRENDS

Atlanta are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games against Colorado.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Atlanta's last 6 games when playing on the road against Colorado.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Colorado's last 8 games.

Colorado are 7-13 SU in their last 20 games.

Prediction

The Rockies scored 13 runs in their last win against the Marlins and have been profitable at home with a 16-12 record. The Braves scored 13 runs in their last 2 games and are 14-9 ATS on the road. Both starters have been pounded this season and with these two power offenses I think the best play is the over.

PICK: Over 11.5 (-110)
