The Atlanta Braves and Colorado Rockies meet Wednesday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The Atlanta Braves look to stay hot after winning seven of their last eight games. The Braves have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 11 games. The Atlanta Braves have won seven straight games when scoring more than two runs. Freddie Freeman leads the Braves with 16 hits and six RBI while Ozzie Albies and Nick Markakis have combined for 30 hits and 11 RBI. Kevin Gausman gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and seven strikeouts this season. This will be Gausman’s first carer game against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies could use a win after losing nine of their last 10 games. The Rockies have allowed 27 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Colorado Rockies have lost nine straight games when allowing at least one run. Offensively, Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 13 hits and six RBI while Charlie Blackmon and David Dahl have combined for 24 hits and 10 RBI.

The Braves are 7-3 in their last 10 vs. National League West, 7-3 in their last 10 Wednesday games and 8-2 in Gausman's last 10 starts. The Rockies are 5-1 in their last 6 Wednesday games, 12-4 in their last 16 vs. National League East and 0-5 in their last 5 home games. The Braves are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Colorado and 8-23 in the last 31 meetings. The over is 5-1-1 in Rockies last 7 vs. National League East. The under is 4-1 in Gausman's last 5 road starts.
We've backed the Atlanta Braves in the first two games of this series as underdogs and there's no reason to stop the trend as long as they're still considered the underdog. The Braves offense continues to show up and that shouldn't change playing in Coors. The Colorado Rockies just can't get anything going right now and their pitchers are getting tagged no matter who steps on the hill. There's just no reason for the Rockies to be favored against anybody with the way they're currently playing. I'm going to back the Braves for a third straight time and expect them to complete the sweep.
