The Braves and Rockies close their series out on Sunday at Coors Field.
The Braves have lost 3 straight games and are the worst team in the MLB.
The Rockies have won 2 in a row, both wins coming against the Braves.
Tyrell Jenkins gets the start for the Braves, he’s 0-1 with a 4.05 ERA and 1.55 WHIP.
Tyler Chatwood gets the start for the Rockies and is 8-6 with a 3.83 ERA and 1.35 WHIP.
The Braves are the worst team in baseball and score the least amount of runs in the league, just 3.4 per game.
They have the second worst team batting average of .238 and have hit the least amount of home runs, just 61.
They can’t score and even in Colorado, the most hitter friendly park in the league, they’ve only generated 6 runs in the first 2 games.
Tyrell Jenkins has an above average ERA of 4.05 but a poor WHIP of 1.55. Still, that ERA is better than the teams 4.7 runs against per game.
He’s been decent for the Braves and gave up just 2 over 6 innings in his last start, which came against the Reds.
His start prior to that, he gave up just 1 over 4.2 innings against the Phillies.
The Rockies are pretty lethal at home and are 3rd in the league in runs per game with 5.1.
They have generated 11 runs in the first two games against the Braves.
They’ve hit 119 home runs this season, that’s 12th best in the league and have the 2nd best OPS at .788.
Chatwood has struggled in his last 2 outings, giving up 11 runs over 8 innings against the Rays and Phillies. Both teams aren’t teams you would expect him to give up so many runs against.
Besides that he’s been pretty good for the Rockies and he’ll be looking to bounce back in this outing against the Braves.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
The Rockies dominate the matchup offensively averaging 1.7 more runs per game and have already taken the first two games of this series.
The pitching matchup is fairly even considering Chatwood has struggled in his last two starts and Jenkins has been pretty good. The edge probably goes to Jenkins here.
Nevertheless, Rockies are going to take this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Rockies ML
The trend has been under for both teams and the over/under is typically really high at Coors field.
I would take the under in this one because the Braves just stink at generated runs no matter the field.
