Colorado Rockies vs. Atlanta Braves Prediction

1u - Braves Over 2.5 Team Total First 5 Innings (-145) (Bet $145 to Win $100)

*Odds Available at DraftKings at Time of Publishing*

We need Atlanta to score three runs in the game's first five innings. Normally this wouldn’t be a bet I take but it’s at Coors Field, that makes all the difference. Yesterday we saw game 2 of the doubleheader with Miami end with 25 total runs. Atlanta should come out blazing in this one, even with it being after a travel day. Colorado is putting out Austin Gomber today who is about as reliable as me committing to a diet, the guy can’t be relied on. Gomber has a 5.51 ERA and is now facing team who historically licks their chops when they face lefties.

Atlanta has definitely toned back last year’s impressive numbers against lefties but it is still their preferred handedness to rake against. Atlanta is batting a cool .247 against lefties and has seemingly been better as of late. Atlanta is due some positive regression this year in my opinion. I don’t believe they have any real chance at repeating as champs but how they’ve played so far shouldn’t last long and they are definitely a team that should end the year over .500. In order to do that, you typically gotta score some runs so let's hope they take advantage of playing in the league's most hitter-friendly park.

This games total is 11! That isn’t a typo, that’s the number. Braves team total is set at 5.5 so we’re getting half the projected total in 5/9th of the game so a little edge here. Gomber is projected to allow north of 3 runs on every projection around and he rarely exceeds going 5 innings. Gombers prop for earned runs is actually set at 3.5 so a bit of a disagreement on the books unless they feel like he goes for 6 innings or more which I don’t see happening. This bet is juicy but good value, our law of averages props always seem to fare well. Lets not overthink this!
