Atlanta Braves vs Washington Nationals MLB Betting Odds and Picks

Atlanta Braves vs Washington Nationals Baseball Betting Odds: Atlanta Braves will play against Washington Nationals in the Opening game of Best of Three series on Tuesday, June 29, 2010 at Turner Field, Atlanta and match starts at 10:05 ET.

The Atlanta Braves were beating Washington Nationals star rookie pitcher Stephen Strasburg 5-0 on Monday night and at the same time, they placed their own star rookie on the 15-day disabled list (DL).

The Braves’ Jason Heyward had been held out of the team’s last three games with a left thumb injury, which has been slow to heal; he’s been hampered by the injury for over a month.

According to numerous reports, Heyward underwent an MRI on Monday, which revealed “a deep bone bruise.”

“We’re doing the best thing, I believe,” Heyward told the AP after the victory over the Nats.

“Right now is a good opportunity to get it done, get the rest done, get the strength back so I’ll be able to come back the second half.”

The USA Today suggests that based on the timing of his trip to the DL, Heyward could miss the All Star game — he is one of the top NL outfielders in All Star voting.

The Braves’ OF is having a strong rookie campaign, currently batting .251 with 11 homers and 45 RBIs.

The Atlanta Braves will continue their current home series against the Washington Nationals, playing their second of three games on Tuesday — the Braves will send Derek Lowe to the mound and are favored at -200.

The Nationals are +170 underdogs and the Over/Under is set at 9.

The Braves haven’t fared well recently against the Nationals however, going 2-6 straight up in their last eight overall against Washington and in their last five home games vs. the Nats, Atlanta is 1-4 SU.

MLB Baseball Betting: Los Angeles Angels vs Texas Rangers Preview

Los Angeles Angels vs Texas Rangers Baseball Betting Odds: Los Angeles Angels will play against Texas Rangers in the Opening game of Best of Three series on Tuesday, June 29, 2010 at Angel Stadium of Anaheim and match starts at 10:05 ET.

The Los Angeles Angels have worked tremendously hard to climb back from the deep hole they dug themselves early in the season. The perennial MLB betting contenders looked like they were going to take a step back this season with the departures of John Lackey and Vladimir Guerrero. However, as always, they managed to find the right parts to remain competitive. Riding a hot June, they host the A.L. West-leading Texas Rangers tonight in Sports Betting baseball odds action.

The only obstacle to the Angels’ comeback success story following a slow start are their opponents tonight. While the Angels are 17-8 so far in June, the Rangers are even more impressive at 20-5. It’s been a tremendous ascent for a team that’s been playing catchup to the Angels for years.

Tonight, the Rangers send Scott Feldman to the mound in Anaheim. He’s 5-6 on the year, but Texas has an 8-7 record in his 2010 starts, including three wins in a row. Feldman’s E.R.A. is quite high, sitting at over five runs a game allowed.

The Angels will counter with veteran Joel Pineiro. The much traveled hurler is 7-6 on the season and L.A. has a 9-6 record in his starts. Pineiro’s E.R.A. is more than a full run lower per game than Feldman’s.

The Sports Betting baseball betting moneyline has the Angels at -125 favorites and the Rangers at +105 underdogs. Clearly, the Rangers’ status as division leaders, coupled with a stellar June and a plus .500 road record, have all contributed to the MLB betting experts not laying all that much on the Angels. Usually, L.A. is a heavy favorite playing in the friendly confines of their stadium.

However, there is one key stat that sticks out when evaluating the baseball odds of this matchup tonight in the MLB circuit. The Rangers are only 6-13 against teams with a winning record this season. This means they haven’t had the toughest schedule thus far and when they actually do face a good team, they don’t perform all that well. For this strong reasoning, the MLB picks for tonight is the Angels at home laying a little on the moneyline.
