It is the first of a three-game series between the two teams. Betting on baseball trends will definitely be interesting on this series.
Baseball betting trends tell us that the Cubs have won 12 of the last 20 games against the Braves but the series has been dominated by the road team of late. The Braves have actually won six of the last ten games at Chicago but even with this betting on baseball trend you have to look closer. The Braves had won six straight at Chicago but in 2007 the Cubs finally won a home game against Atlanta and last year they swept the Braves in a three-game set. Last season the Cubs won 3-2, 7-2 and 10-5 as baseball betting results indicated.
Looking at the baseball betting total at the sportsbook we see that there is not much to choose from. 11 of the last 20 games between the two teams have gone over the baseball betting total but the last 10 games in Chicago have split, going 5-5.
The Braves have been just below .500 on the road this season in baseball betting. Atlanta has gotten excellent pitching this season as they rank in the Top 5 in the league as betting on baseball statistics show. Unfortunately, the Braves are not hitting the ball. They are in the bottom third of the league in runs scored as baseball betting numbers show. They can still be worth taking on the road though at times since they are almost always an underdog.
Chicago continues to be a mystery in baseball betting at the sports book. The Cubs have been solid at home while struggling on the road. Chicago has similar baseball betting stats to Atlanta. They pitch well but struggle to score runs. The difference between the two teams is that the Cubs are overpriced which means they offer very little value to gamblers who are betting on baseball. The Braves are sometimes undervalued and worth a shot against the baseball betting odds at the sports book.
