BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Atlanta's last 8 games when playing on the road against Colorado.

Atlanta are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games played in June.

The total has gone OVER in 7 of Colorado's last 10 games.

Colorado are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games.

Prediction

We're 2-0 on this series with the over in the first game and the under in the second of the series, now it's time to go back to the over. It's hard to believe that these offenses will be so quiet again with Strider on the mound for the Braves who's coming from allow 5 runs in his last start and Freeland for the Rockies who's coming from an injury and got pounded in his last start. Let's go with the over.

PICK: Over 11.5 (-110)
