We hit a little bump in the street last night when we chose a shot underdog once we endorsed the Boston Red Sox against the San Diego Padres. The game was a very competitive one, and pitcher lasted long. This game has been turned around to both bullpens from the sixth inning, along with also the’pens did an fantastic job of shutting down the lineup.
Both teams fought to strike the ball, and the Padres three-run first inning was enough to hang on the win, finally taking the match, 3-1. What do you do once you have been as sexy as we’ve been at the previous two weeks, winning at north of 80% of our bets, you are likely to eliminate a match there and here. We won’t let it disturb us too much though as for today’s pick we will head to the Rocky Mountains where the Colorado Rockies sponsor the Atlanta Braves.
Since they swing by Colorado for a fast one-game makeup game using the Rockies the Atlanta Braves are looking to stay tonight. This game will finish the season set for Braves and the Rockies that started in April and was rained out. The Braves are going to have a turnaround as they played in new york against the Mets yesterday.
But nothing could slow this Braves team down now as they have won eight straight games, including back sweeps over the Mets and Marlins. Atlanta has yet to eliminate a string here in August, and they have done a terrific job of beating teams that are good because they have recent show wins over the Los Angeles Dodgers along with the Minnesota Twins, both place teams. Together with the makeup game the Braves are in the middle of a grueling twenty-six games in twenty five days stretch.
For the Rockies, their period has turned to disappointment. They came to 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 games back of LA.. And things are getting worse as the season winds down to the Rockies since they’ve dropped six out of the last seven games which includes the heels of losing eight from the ten matches around the month.
Beginning for the Braves is Julio Teheran (8-8 3.53 ERA), and for the Rockies it is Tim Melville (1-0 1.29 ERA). The game is put in thirteen runs. The Braves are all -143 street favorites. First pitch is scheduled for 12:10 PM PST out of Coors Field in Colorado.
Julio Teheran has been quite great. In July he needed a 1.48 ERA in six starts, and the Braves moved 5-1. In his other three starts he has been leading, although here in August , he had one tough outing against a Mets team that is red-hot. He tossed seven shutout innings. Two begins before that, he lasted seven innings again, allowing just one earned run the Braves won both matches.
Teheran has achieved a great job of giving his staff a chance to win outside, and afterwards going Atlanta includes a record in his twenty five starts. Teheran has allowed two runs or less in eight from his last ten starts. Despite the lineup obtaining the enormous advantage of playing their home games they have been swinging a mediocre bat as of late since they are fifteenth in the majors in runs.
Tim Melville will be the type of man when all hope has been lost by the entire season, you only start. This guy has pitched seven games in his profession, going back to 2016. The Rockies have decided to provide a chance to the twenty-nine-year-old and with their rotation in tatters along with their season over, discovered him playing in the Atlantic League this year. No team would allow a man like Melville to pitch innings.
Normally I would be reluctant to back a group that has been forced to play this many consecutive games and also this substantially travel. But then I am reminded the oldest guy on this Braves team is like year’s old and this set of kids won’t have any difficulty staying energized or motivated. I have a sense they are going to love hitting in the rarefied air of Coors Field, and it wouldn’t surprise me to watch them struck double-digits runs using a guy like Melville about the mound.
In the Braves two games this season at Coors Field, they scored a joint fifteen runs. I anticipate a similar degree of scoring tonight. And together with Teheran pitching so well right now, I see that this game turned into a blowout. So, obviously, the Braves are the side. Along with also the number that is -143 is not a poor one, and that I really do see value in choosing the Braves.
Nevertheless, as soon as I look at the run line, it seems to provide more value. I am always cautious of run line bets, because run and a halfcan be challenging to pay for. However, the run line is tailor-made for situations like this . Where you’ve got one group that can not shed at the moment and can be currently leading their division. And another team, that can not find ways to win and can be out.
The game total with this one is really a thirteen runs, and I really don’t see the Rockies scoring of those runs. I see Atlanta winning, and winning big in Colorado. Feels like a 9-2 score if you want my opinion. So, I lay that run along with a half and will take just a little bit of a gamble and pursue tonight to the bigger payout. Give me that the Atlanta Braves on the run line in -107 now from Coors Field!
