Feltner Struggles Continue
Ryan Felter (2-5, 5.87) gets the ball for Colorado as they try to continue their success against the Braves, but a quick look at the MLB stats 2022 will tell you to take caution before going all-in with the Rockies and their big plus money number.
For those who got in on Colorado last night (+300), take your money and run. You already made a profit on the series, making another wager on the inferior Rockies an unlikely winner. Felter will be making his 13th start of the season with all but five coming away from Coors Field.
He has continued to give the Rockies pen a breather, going into the sixth inning in five of his last six starts but the right-handers’ numbers are declining as the season progresses.
Felter is just 1-3 with a 7.31 era in his last seven starts. The long ball has hurt him of late, giving up seven bombs in those starts. In his career, the former Ohio State Buckeye has produced a 4-10 record for bettors (-323 units). Let’s continue our Rockies vs Braves game preview with a look at the second-place Braves.
Braves Run Small Losing Streak to Three Games
With a soft spot in the New York Mets schedule coming up these are the games that the Braves must take advantage of if they have any hopes of catching the Mets in the National League East standings. Atlanta will send Kyle Wright (16-5, 2.99 era) to the mound in search of his 17th win, which would make him the MLB statistical leader in that category.
Wright has won his past three starts and nine of his past 10 decisions. In his last four starts, Wright has allowed just 21 hits in 25 innings while getting plenty of run support. In his last 15 starts, Wright is 12-2 with the Braves providing 5.8 runs of support.
Over his last three seasons, Alabama native has given bettors 375 units of profit behind a 22-11 record. The public should always play Atlanta with some caution because they have not been a reliable bet over the past three seasons because they’re usually big favorites on most nights.
In their last 350 games, Atlanta is 201-149 *57.43%) but has cost the betting public 242 units with 177 of that coming in 2022 after last night’s loss as a -360 favorite.
Public Coming Back Hard on Braves and Under
Betting patterns never cease to amaze. Atlanta opened as a consensus -275 favorite and was quickly bet up to -320. We would never recommend having your bankroll involved in those kinds of numbers, especially after the Rockies stole another road win in game one.
That makes the total a more reasonable game two option. The Braves standings 2022 lead the National League wild-card by a wide margin on the back of an offense that averages almost five runs a game, ranking them third in that MLB statistical category.
As noted earlier in our Rockies vs Braves game preview, they’ve been even better when Wright takes the ball. Eight is too generous of a number when Atlanta could cover that by themselves. Take the over -118 to cash tonight’s ticket.Follow us on Twitter
