MLB Sports Handicappers Preview Atlanta (20-20) at Pittsburgh (18-22)

We enter one of our favorite times, making sports picks in Inter-league play. Inter-league play in MLB brings some edges that allows us to take full advantage the of MLB boards. Both teams are coming into tonight’s contest hitting below the standard average. Until last night’s walk off grand slam, the Atlanta Braves were ranked twenty third and averaging four runs per game. They have left men on base three hundred and five times so far this season, which speaks volumes about how poorly they execute while leaving men on base. As for the Pittsburgh Pirates, they are twenty seventh ranked with a pathetic batting average of .237 and only knocking in one hundred and forty one runs for the season. They will face Atlanta’s Tim Hudson ho has been pitching lights out all season. In his last thirty three and two thirds innings, Hudson has allowed only eight runs on twenty five hits. Pittsburgh sends Ross Ohlendrof who has only surrender five runs on eleven hits in his first three starts.
