The Braves have not played great in their last few games, but I look for them to get back on track in this series.
Atlanta is the better team and I think they will show that in this one. I do not have much confidence backing the Rockies here.
I feel that Toussaint will pitch a solid game and the Braves will hit around Gonzalez.
My play is the Braves on the moneyline.
