Sitting just above .500, Atlanta holds a disparate home/road record to begin 2019. As of this writing, the Braves are 0-for on the road –even losing recently vs. Florida– but own a strong 5-1 record at Suntrust Park. However, an anamoly exists: Atlanta’s last two victories vs. the Rockies come from Coors Field.
To ensure repeat Mile High success, and buck recent trends, the Braves will need offense from reigning NL Rookie of the Year Ronald Acuna. Acuna’s .129 BA isn’t what Atlanta envisioned ahead of the five-tool prospect’s sophomore campaign. Though, if Acuna breaks out and compliments the early production of Freddie Freeman, Ozzie Albies and Dansby Swanson, the Braves can find runs vs. Colorado.
And as unproven youngster Max Fried (3-5 career record) battles German Marquez tonight, those runs will be needed.
As noted, German Marquez takes the mound for Colorado Tuesday. Marquez, 24, one of MLB’s rising talents, has shown an evolved pitching IQ on the young season to bolster his reputation. With little run support, Marquez currently has a 1-0 record while allowing just five hits and one run in 13 innings.
That talent, combined with a 14-11 mark and Colorado wild card berth last season, just earned Marquez a five-year $43 million contract extension.
Marquez would like nothing more than to show his gratitude toward Rockies management by upending Atlanta.
And in 2018 Colorado had little trouble with the defending NL East Champs, besting Atlanta five games to two to cap the teams’ regular season series. Marquez won his only start vs. Atlanta on August 19, 2018. That afternoon, the power pitcher recorded five strikeouts and gave up five hits in seven innings as Colorado shined 4-2.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Rockies are 0-3 SU at home this season.
- Braves are 0-3 SU away this season.
- Rockies are 4-4-1 O/Uthis season.
- Braves are 4-5-1 O/U this season.
Free Atlanta Braves vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
With the exception of Nolan Arenado, David Dahl, and Charlie Blackmon, Colorado’s #26 ranked offense has disappointed. That stated, even vs. the struggling Rockies Atlanta must overcome the peaking confidence of a newly re-signed future All Star hurler.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Colorado Rockies SU
In tight quarters Colorado will muster just enough offense as Marquez holds off the Braves’ bats.
