Colorado at Atlanta
Monday 08/24 07:10 PM Eastern
0.5 unit on Atlanta -1.5 runs +175 (runline) (risk 0.5 to return 1.38) RESULT: WIN
Colorado is a long way from home, struggling again, and the Rockies are on a 28-76 run on the road. The Rockies were swept in a three-game home series by the New York Mets over the weekend and have dropped 11 of their last 13 overall. Every one of those 11 losses has been by 2 runs or more. Rockies lefty Jorge De La Rosa has won just one of his last eight starts, and the Rockies are 11-42 away against a team with a winning home record. Atlanta is happy to be home after a long trip, and the Braves have a winning home record. The Braves are 6-2 as home chalk, plus 77-37 at home following a road trip of seven or more days. Braves starter Julio Teheran (8-6) has outstanding home numbers, 6-1 with a 2.44 ERA and three homers allowed in 77+ innings. The Rockies are 14-38 in the last 52 meetings in Atlanta, so the value is with a one-sided win by the home team. Play the Braves on the runline.
