Colorado Rockies vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
The Braves did not start off this series well, but I do look for them to bounce back against the Rockies.
Atlanta is the better team and they need to be able to beat teams like Colorado. These games are very important to win because winning their division is not a guarantee.
I feel that this will be a very good pitching matchup. I look for the Braves to do enough against Marquez to get the win.
I like the Braves straight up here.
