The Braves are 7-19 in their last 26 vs. National League West and 7-15 in Woods last 22 road starts. The Rockies are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 4 of a series and 5-2 in Bettis' last 7 starts with 4 days of rest. The Braves are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Colorado.
Both teams are struggling to put runs on the board, especially the Rockies, who have scored three or less runs in seven of their last 10 games. The over/under is way too high. Take the under.
