Major League Baseball Odds Atlanta Braves vs Houston Astros

Thursday baseball and we will see the Atlanta Braves take on the Houston Astros in game 3 of their 3 game series from Minute Maid Patk in Houston, Texas. First pitch is scheduled for a 2:10 PM (Eastern) start time and the game will be televised on MLB Network.

Current Odds

Atlanta          -130
Houston        +110

Over/ Under: 8 U -115

Analysis: The Atlanta Braves come in at 40-37 on the year and are currently 1 game behind the Washington Nationals in the National League East. The Braves have taken the first two games of this series and are now 4-2 on this current road trip. Atlanta has struggled at the plate this year as they come in ranked 29th in the league in hitting (3.57 rpg), 26th in hitting (.241) and 11th in homers (74). The pitching, though, has been very good, as they rank 5th in the league in ERA (3.30), 12th in WHIP (1.26) and 1st in quality starts. Getting the ball today for the Braves will be Mike Minor, who is 2-4 with a 4.20 ERA in 10 starts this year, while on the road he is 1-0 with a 4.01 ERA in 4 starts. Mike is 0-0 with a 3.75 ERA in 2 career starts vs the Astros.

The Houston Astros are having another rough year, as they come in at 33-46 overall, including just 17-22 at home. The Astros are currently 15.5 games behind the A's in the AL West, and they have gone just 3-7 in interleague play this year. The Astros also struggle at the plate, as they come in ranked 27th in the league in scoring (3.71) and 28th in hitting (.234). They do have some pop in their bats, as they rank 7th in the league in homers with 81. The pitching has not been good for this team, as they come in ranked 24th in ERA (4.15) and 21st in WHIP (1.34). Getting the ball for Houston tonight will be Jarred Cosart, who is 7-5 with a 3.78 ERA on the year overall. including 3-2 with a 4.02 ERA at home. Jarred has never faced the Braves.

Pick: Gonna go with the Braves in this one. Jarred Cosart has pitched well this year, but the fact is that Minor is still the better starter and the Braves are still the better team. I look for the Btaves to take anotyher one here.
