3 units on Atlanta -110 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: loss
4 units on Atlanta +100 (moneyline) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: win
The D-Backs have fallen on hard times after their surprising start. They have lost five of their lsat seven games. These two pitchers are smokin' right now. Owings has posted a 2.70 ERA in his last three starts while Glavine has posted a 3.37 ERA over his last three. But, they aren't that good and should revert to form. The Braves score 5.7 runs per game at home and 5.8 per game vs. RHP. Owings will have trouble keeping this offense in check. He is, in fact, 0-8 the past two seasons vs. teams that are at .540 or better. Overall the D-Backs are 6-19 vs. on the road vs. such teams the past two seasons. They are also 20-39 the past three seasons after a game in which they scored under 2 runs. Atlanta is 10-0 this season at home to a line of -125 to +125. We like the Braves to keep their offense going and to win in a high-scoring affair.
