Preview

The Atlanta Braves and the Colorado Rockies will play the 2nd game of the series at the Coors Field on Friday night. The Braves took the win 13-6 on Thursday.

Atlanta Braves

The Braves get here with a 25-27 record and have won 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 29 RBI while Dansby Swanson has the better batting average with .270. 

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

Probable Pitcher:

Max Fried (5-2, 3.10 ERA) will be on the mound for the Braves in the 2nd game of the series. Fried allowed one run on six hits and three walks over six innings Sunday, striking out five and earning a victory over Miami.

Colorado Rockies

The Rockies get here with a 23-28 record and have lost 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 14 home runs, 40 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: 

Chad Kuhl (4-2, 3.56 ERA) will start for the Rockies in the 2nd game of the series. Kuhl picked up the win in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals, allowing two runs on seven hits and a walk over 6.1 innings. He struck out seven. In his last start against the Braves he allowed 1 run and struck out 7 across 6 innings pitched.

BETTING TRENDS

Atlanta are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games against Colorado.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Atlanta's last 7 games when playing on the road against Colorado.

Colorado are 6-12 SU in their last 18 games.

The total has gone OVER in 10 of Colorado's last 14 games at home.

Prediction

As expected, both offenses responded in the first of the series but this time the teams are sending their best pitchers. Chad Khul dominated the Braves last season holding them to only 1 run in 6 innings. Max Fried has allowed 3 runs in his last 12 innings pitched. I think the score will stay under the total this time.

PICK: Under 11.5 (-110)
