Mike Lundin’s Rockies vs. Braves Free Pick
Start Time: August 27, 2017, 1:35 PM
Going for free pick winner #6 in a row!
The Colorado Rockies are just 32-34 on the road this season, but I like them to improve on that record here in the rubber-match of a three game set at Atlanta.
The Braves have one of the worst home records in baseball at 29-35, and today they hand the ball to Mike Foltynewicz (10-9, 4.95 ERA) who has been lit up wherever he’s pitched lately. The 25 year old has been tagged with a total of 20 runs in just 11 2/3 frames through his last three outings, and that includes surrendering eight in 3 1/3 innings at Coors Field on August 16.
Just like today, Foltynewicz pitched opposite Jon Gray (5-3, 4.54 ERA) in that contest. Gray gave up just five hits and struck out six while holding the Braves to a pair of runs in six innings of the 17-2 Rockies victory. Gray is 1-3 with a 5.72 ERA in eight road starts on the season, but he’s been pretty sharp in recent outings compiling a solid 3.70 ERA through last four starts away from Coors.
The Rockies are 17-5 in the last 22 head-to-head meetings, and I think this looks like a more than fair price on the visitors who are fighting to hold on to their wild card spot.
My free pick is on the Colorado Rockies ML.
Mike Lundin’s premium pick action starts early on Sunday with his PREMIER LEAGUE BIG 6 BOOKIE BREAKER featuring Arsenal vs. Liverpool. It’s followed by his TOP RATED 10* MLB BIG HITTER before closing out the day with a BENGALS/REDSKINS TOTAL. The last few days have been a huge disappointment, but he’s still boasting a 4-2 NFLX RECORD YTD and you can always count on Mike to deliver the goods with bases.
Note that more plays might be added to Sunday’s card, so the smart move is to get on board with a subscription to make sure you don’t miss a single release.
