MLB Thursday

53-38 +21,040
S.F. Giants at Atlanta Braves
The Braves were on a 7 game win streak when it was snapped by S.F. Now they've lost 2 in a row coming up last game of the Giants & Braves series. Can Tim Hudson and the Braves salvage the last game of this series?. Atlanta has stopped 2 games slide in last 3 times it's happened 3 games slide last happened 6/16, 17 and 18th. The last sweep Atlanta faced was the Yankees 6/11, 12 & 13th, the last NL team to sweep Atlanta was Washington 5/25, 26 & 27th. Hudson is a winning pitcher and Atlanta seems likely to take the last game at home before heading out on the road, but it should be noted that the Braves got swept both against the Yankees and the Nationals at home. Hudson is also a road pitcher with 3-3 record at home. The Giants are in uncharted territory with their longest win streak. They should like their chances with Madison Bumgarner 11-5 with the Giants 12-6 eating up innings. Still on the surface this game belongs to the Braves. Bumgarner is a home pitcher with 4-4 record away. However the angle is San Francisco. Staying on the Giants coming off a win scoring +5 runs and covering the RL against a winning team with a hot pitcher.

S.F. GIANTS +110 for 1 unit(L)

 Houston Astros at San Diego Padres
Houston looking to split this four game series. They will send Lucas HarrellHouston's top money pitcher. Lucas has two no decision Houston losing both and his last win was three games ago blanking the Padres. This game not be so easy. Going for the Padres is Edinson Volquez coming off a non quality win however his prior three games all quality winners. I think both pitcher have a quality gamr. They both are coming off a weak start which should improve, Volquez on a turn around and Harrell coming back against a team he performed well. Plus we are playing in a pitcher's ballpark.

HOUSTON at SAN DIEGO UNDER 6 at -105 for 1 unit(W)
