MLB Betting Trends
The under is 8-0 in the last eight Braves games on Saturdays. The under is 8-3 in the last 11 Braves games following a loss.
The under is 9-4 in the last 13 Diamondbacks home games. The under is 7-1 in the last eight Teheran starts versus the D-backs.
This series should be competitive throughout and with two capable pitchers on the mound, expect runs to come by today. If you pay attention to the trends, Atlanta has been playing a lot of low-scoring games on Saturdays for whatever reason. Scores have also generally been lower at Chase Field this season after the addition of the humidor. I am picking the under here.
