02:35 ATL Braves v HOU Astros 1 1.37


ATL Braves continue to play at home and tonight they will face HOU Astros in 8th consecutive home game.  Braves managed to win 7 from those 8 games which is outstanding performance. In addition Astros are not in good form and they are 1-9 in last 10 games. Also Astros are the weakest away team with only 10 wins from 54 matches. Another strong fact for this pick is that on the mound for Braves will be their ace pitcher Tim Hudson who is 10-4 (3.68 ERA) this season. His overall stats is 191-101 with 3.42 ERA. It’s pretty tough to find pitcher with such a stats in MLB. Astros’ starting pitcher is Armando Galarraga. This will be his first start for the season and I expect that he will be pretty nervous and Braves’ batters will exploit that fact. Galarraga cant be compared with Hudson with his 26-40 overall record with 4.68 ERA. Recent form, starting pitchers and the head-to-head statistic lead me to a clear home win, so pick it! GL
