Rockies vs Braves free MLB pick provided by Sports Investor Central
The Braves host the Rockies in a 3 game series this weekend coming off the All Star break. Atlanta has been dreadful this season and rank last in MLB in total runs scored (307) and BA (.237). The Braves pitching is middle of the pack with a team ERA of 4.32. Sports Investor Central offers their take with a free MLB prediction below.
Colorado has one of the top offenses in the majors. As a team they have a .273 BA, have scored 454 runs and have hit 112 home runs. Part of this offensive production is a result of playing home games at Coors Field but the Rockies had 4 players enter the All Star break with double digit home run totals and 3 of those players have 19 home runs or more. The problem that has plagued Colorado for years is their pitching. So far in 2016, they have a team ERA of 5.08.
Rockies are 8-1 in the last 9 meetings
Rockies are 8-3 in De La Rosas last 11 starts vs. National League East
Rockies are 53-25 in De La Rosas last 78 starts vs. a team with a losing record
Braves are 1-6 in their last 7 games following a win
Braves are 7-19 in their last 26 home games vs. a left-handed starter
Braves are 8-20 in their last 28 home games vs. a team with a losing road record
Hard to back the Braves even at home. The Rockies field a better offense and De La Rosa should be rested coming off the All Star break. Taking the Rockies offense over this dreadful Atlanta team.
