MLB Betting Odds: Atlanta Braves vs. Milwaukee Brewers Pick: May 10th 2010
It’s true that the Braves have really struggled on the road. However, that’s not Tommy Hanson’s fault. Hanson has a 2.65 ERA in his three road starts and the Braves have won two of those games. Looking back further and we find that Hanson has NEVER allowed more than four earned runs in any of his 13 big league road starts and that he allowed two earned runs or less in 10 of those. He finished last season with a 4-2 record and 2.61 ERA on the road. He did lose his only start at Miller Park – that wasn’t his fault either though, as he allowed two earned runs through seven innings. The Braves didn’t give him any run support in that game, but they should provide him with some here, even if Jones and Heyward aren’t available.
Davis was ok (for him) last time out, allowing three runs in 5 1/3 innings and earning his first victory. However, he’s still 1-3 with a terrible 8.13 ERA and 2.061 WHIP on the season, averaging less than five innings per start.
While I’ve already noted that the Braves have struggled on the road, it’s also worth mentioning that the Brewers haven’t been particularly good at home either. They’re just 4-8 here on the season. The Braves have won three of their last four here and I feel that they’ve got a great chance at starting this series off with a much-needed victory. Consider Atlanta
