MLB Betting: Colorado Rockies vs. Atlanta Braves Odds & Pick: April 16th 2010
At 7:35 pm, our complimentary selection is on the Colorado/Atlanta game ‘over’ the total. Jason Hammel will get the ball for the Rockies, and he brings a 5.14 ERA into this game. Even worse, his career stats vs. the Braves are a dismal 0-1 with an 8.00 ERA in two starts! Hammel’s mound opponent will be veteran righty Derek Lowe, and Lowe has also fared worse vs. the Rockies than against other teams in his career, with a 4.33 ERA. Lowe’s ERA on this young season is 4.50, so this has all the makings of a high-scoring game, especially when one considers that Colorado is averaging 6 runs per game vs. right-handed starters this season, while the Braves are plating 5.4 runs per game vs. righties. With five of the last six meetings between these clubs in Atlanta going ‘over’ the total, we’ll look for another high-scoring game here. Good luck, as always…Big Al McMordie.
