When we chose a shot underdog when we backed the Boston Red Sox against the San Diego Padres we hit a bump in the road. The match was a really competitive one, and pitcher lasted very long. The sixth inning turned around to both various bullpens this game, along with the’pens did an fantastic job of closing down the opposing lineup.
Both teams struggled to strike at the ball, along with the Padres three-run first inning was enough to hang on the win, finally taking the game, 3-1. What can you really do when you are as hot as we have been in the past two weeks, winning north of 80 percent of our bets, you are likely to get rid of a game there and here. We won’t let it bother us though as for the pick we will visit the Rocky Mountains where the Atlanta Braves are hosted by the Colorado Rockies.
The Atlanta Braves are currently trying to stay hot tonight because they swing by Colorado to get a fast one-game makeup game with the Rockies. This game will finish the season series for Braves and the Rockies that started in April and was rained out. The Braves are going to have a really turnaround yesterday, as they played in New York City from the Mets.
But nothing could impede this Braves team down now as they have won eight straight games, including back sweeps over Marlins and the Mets. Atlanta has yet to lose a string here in August, and they’ve done a excellent job of beating teams since they have series wins on the Los Angeles Dodgers along with the Minnesota Twins. Together with the makeup match jammed in here, the Braves are in the center of a grueling games in times stretch.
For the Rockies, their season has turned to disappointment. They came into the year looking to compete with the Dodgers for the NL West Division crowninsteadthey are in last position, a whopping twenty-seven and a half matches of LA.. And things are getting worse as the year winds down for the Rockies that comes on the heels of dropping eight and as they have dropped out six of their past seven matches.
Beginning for the Braves is Julio Teheran (8-8 3.53 ERA), and also for the Rockies it is Tim Melville (1-0 1.29 ERA). The game complete over-under is put at thirteen runs. The Braves have been all -143 street favorites. First pitch is scheduled for 12:10 PM PST in Coors Field in Colorado.
Julio Teheran has been very great in the second half of the year for the Braves. In July he needed a 1.48 ERA in six starts, and the Braves moved 5-1. Here in August , he had one tough outing against a Mets group that is red-hot, but in his three starts , he has been leading. He tossed seven shutout innings against the Marlins. Two begins before that, he continued allowing only one earned run against the Miami, the Braves won the two games.
Teheran has done a excellent job of giving his staff a opportunity to win out, and Atlanta has a 14-6 record in his twenty five begins, afterwards going 3-4 in his first seven minutes of the year. Teheran has allowed two runs or less in eight from his last ten starts. As they are fifteenth from the majors in runs scored in August despite the lineup getting the huge advantage of playing their home games they have been swinging a bat as of late.
Tim Melville will be the sort of guy you only start when all trust has been lost by the season. This man has pitched seven games in his profession. The Rockies discovered him playing at the Atlantic League earlier this season and with their turning in tatters along with their period over, have decided to provide the twenty-nine-year-old a shot. No team that is good would allow a guy like Melville to pitch innings that is purposeful.
Normally I would be reluctant to back a team that has been forced to play this many games and also this substantially travel. But I am reminded that the oldest guy on this team is like twenty-five year-old and that this set of youngsters will not have any trouble staying energized or motivated. I’ve a feeling that they are going to love hitting in the rarefied air of Coors Field, and it would not shock me to watch them hit double-digits runs with a guy like Melville.
From the Braves two games this season at Coors Field, they scored a fifteen runs. I expect a similar degree of tonight. And with Teheran pitching so well right now, I see that this game being a blowout. So the Braves are the negative to rear. And also the number isn’t a poor one, and I do see value in taking the Braves at the cost.
But when I look at the run line, it seems to offer even more value. As that run and a half , can be challenging to cover I’m always cautious of run line bets. However, the run point is tailor-made for most situations like this one. Where you have one group that can’t lose and is currently directing their division. And yet another team, that can not find ways to win and is out.
The game total with this one is really a sky-high thirteen also I really don’t observe the Rockies scoring many of those runs. I visit Atlanta winning, and winning large, now in Colorado. If you ask me, feels just like a 9-2 score. I will take just a bit of a bet and lay a half and that run and chase the payout that is bigger tonight. Give that the Atlanta Braves on the line at -107 today from Coors Field to me!
