Bet on MLB – Braves at Dodgers on MLB Network

May 30, 2011 MLB Baseball

You can bet on MLB late night on Tuesday night and watch the action on the MLB Network as the Los Angeles Dodgers host the Atlanta Braves.

The Braves are in the second game of a long 10-game road trip and face a tough matchup against the Dodgers and pitcher Hiroki Kuroda.  The Dodgers are favored in MLB betting against the Braves at SBG.

Tuesday’s Pitching Matchup
The Braves will be going with Brandon Beachy on Tuesday night. Their young right-hander has struggled somewhat this season with a 1-2 record and an ERA of 5.19. He will be opposed by Hiroki Kuroda who is 2-1 with a 3.48 ERA.  Beach is coming off a poor outing last time out as he gave up five runs in just over five innings to Florida. In his last two starts, Beachy has allowed nine earned runs. Kuroda is also coming off a bad outing as he gave up five earned runs in a loss to St. Louis. He has had pitched well in his career against the Braves with a 1.92 ERA but the Dodgers have not gotten him much run support and his record is just 1-3.

The Braves went 5-3 against the Dodgers last season and before yesterday’s game the Braves were 5-3 at Dodger Stadium. Last year the teams split their four meetings in Los Angeles and surprisingly three of the four games went over for those who bet on MLB.

Dodgers and Under?
This could be a parlay in MLB betting of the Dodgers and under. The Braves are just 3-7 in their last 10 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Braves are 1-6 in their last 7 vs. the National League West and they are 1-5 in Beachy’s last 6 starts. The Dodgers are 4-1 in Kuroda’s last 5 starts. Before yesterday’s game the Under was 6-1 in the Braves last 7 overall. The Under is 18-7-2 in the Braves last 27 games vs. a right-handed starter. The only concern on the total was that the Dodgers before Monday’s game had gone over in five of their last seven home games. The great news though is that the Under is 7-0 in Kuroda’s last 7 starts vs. the National League East and the Under is 4-0 in Kuroda’s last 4 starts vs. the Braves.
