Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Betting Odds from BetJamaica
Moneyline: Phillies (-141) Braves (+131)
Starting Pitchers: Braves (Lowe) vs. Phillies (Lee)
The Atlanta Braves started the season off a little bit slowly, but they have now won five straight games. The Braves now travel to take on the NL East leading Philadelphia Phillies. Philadelphia took two out of three from the Braves in Atlanta in early April. Tonight we have a marquee pitching matchup.
Derek Lowe has been in the news for the wrong reasons so far this year. Lowe’s DUI arrest from a couple weeks ago was all over the headlines. In his last couple games Lowe hasn’t had his best stuff. He did pitch well earlier this year against the Phillies, but he lost that game because Cole Hamels pitched a shutout for the Phillies. The Braves have been getting excellent pitching and defense, but the offense hasn’t performed up to expectations so far this season. Dan Uggla is hitting just .211 and Jason Heyward is batting .233 this year. The team is hitting a lot of home runs, but they haven’t been coming up with clutch hits with runners in scoring position.
The Philadelphia Phillies are certainly a much better team when Chase Utley is healthy, but the lineup they are running out there on a daily basis right now is still a very good one. The Phillies pitching rotation is much better than anyone else in baseball. Not surprisingly, the Phillies lead the majors with 23 quality starts in just 30 games. The Phillies are seventh in team batting average. Placido Polanco has been the hitting star in 2011 for this team. He has come up with a ton of timely hits for the Phillies. Cliff Lee started the year slowly, but he has pitched well in four straight starts.
Braves vs. Phillies Free Pick: Play on Phillies ML (-141)
*3 Star TGIF Free Pick* Cliff Lee lost his first outing against the Braves earlier this year, and I think that is giving us a solid value on the moneyline in this one. I think the Phillies have a slightly better lineup than the Braves, and I definitely think Lee is a better pitcher than Lowe. The Braves have been hot of late, but I think Lee cools them off tonight. Take the Phillies ML.
