MLB picks and analysis
Atalanta - Phillie
Atalanta Braves are playing excellent at the moment and in last ten matches they’ve made great improvement in the attacking part of their game with average of 6,68 runs. In last four matches they went in over with total of 53 runs.
As for Phillies their four out of five ended in over. They dind’t perform quite good in attack, but their pitchers and bullpen had two miserable weeks with only 5,96 ERA. Philladelphia will send Ethan Martin to mound today, a debutant who has a record of 11-5 and 4,12 ERA in the lower division.
Atalanta will rely on Medlen (7-10; 3,74 ERA) who in the last game ended his run of losses with very solid start and a win. Before that he had a row of tree losses in which he allowed 14 runs. On away turf he is not playing so good with only 4,28 ERA. This season against Phillies he has 0-2 and 6,97 ERA.
Matches between these two teams usually go in over. Last three were in over and also eight out of last ten. Medlen will be a good opportunity for Phillies to try and start things a bit but he’ll certainly have a hard time against excellent Braves. Also we mustn’t forget the Phillies Stadium which is more inclined to batters and I believe we’ll see a hole lot of runs today.
Bet: Over 8,5 Runs (with extra time)
